So last week was my final week of teaching. Twas very sad and weird saying goodbye to everyone for the last time, though did mean I got 2 days of pool parties, sunbathing, eating ice cream and swimming. Hehe.
One of my favourite classes is the beginners class I taught. All the students are adults from church and they are such lovely people and an amazing group to teach. I loved teaching them so much and they are like family to me. They are my last class on a Monday and a Wednesday. On Wednesday they threw me a surprise party. I locked up my classroom, then went upstairs to leave, and they were all there waiting for me. It was amazing, I was so touched. They got me lovely pressies; a bracelet from Ecuador and earrings from Columbia. And they had also gone to the effort of writing me a card in English. They got food and cake and said loads of lovely things. It made me cry. I'm going to miss them so much. After the party, Sebas, the only teenager in the group, wanted to give me a piggy back ride. Yeah, it ended in disaster. I accidentally leant backwards which caused Sebas to fall on top of me in the middle of the road. Was so funny. I got up and was like 'Owww my bottom!' and everyone just cracked up laughing at me. They thought what I had said was hilarious, and they kept asking me to say it on Sunday at Church.
Tonight I was invited out for a meal with Marta and Daniel. I have been teaching them both in private classes this year and they are a lovely couple. Marta is 8 months pregnant, so excited for them both. It was so lovely. Had such a yummy meal but ate waaaaaaay too much. We ordered tapas, and normally tapas is a little dish you share, and you get lots. So we ordered lots, but the tapas that came out was mahoooosive! One tapas plate was literally a main meal - it was Spanish sausage, egg and chips... and we ordered 2 plates!! Not to mention all the other food. It was so yummy tho. I am about to explode however. I'm blaming Marta as she did the ordering and she's eating for 2 hehehe.
On Friday I go to China for 2 weeks to see my sister who I haven't seen for almost a year!! Been way too long, least we have skype tho. Really looking forward to seeing her and all the awesome stuff we have planned. It's going to be amazing. The only downside is that it will take me TWO days to get to China and TWO days to get back!!! That bit I ain't looking forward to. Also, my ear has decided to get very painful earache, right before a 2 day journey mainly on planes. I have a feeling my head may explode while travelling hehe.
So has it's my last week before China, I have had to do a lot of packing and I've come to the conclusion I have way too much stuff!! I had to pack all my stuff for the UK and all my stuff for China. Yeah that was confusing doing it at the same time, but it's all done and I think I have the right stuff in the right place. All my UK things have been moved to Caroline and Desmond's as I will be staying with them after China.
Right, will see you in two weeks as I'm off to China!! Woop woop!! :D
God bless xxx
