NSW school holidays began this week, however we’ve begun Term 4 early. Considering the more relaxed pace we enjoyed in August/September we felt it was time to ‘knuckle’ down. We’ve had a great week, I’m feeling so confident about this term! I haven’t felt this good in a long time:)

What about you? Are you a Paper or Gadget fan?
