Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

happy-new-year-200x200Happy New Year!

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re doing something. – Neil Gaiman

I thought long about how to best sum up 2015. Because it has been a special year for me.

It got off to a difficult start, as I had to spend a week in hospital in January. But it was onwards and upwards from there.
For example renovating and moving into a new flat. Which means that I can teach from home now, saving me a lots of time 🙂

2015 has been a quiet year on my blog. Something which will change in 2016 🙂
This will be the first year I’m working with an editorial planner, to help me keep track of my blog posts. (If you’re interested, I’m using this one: EPIC BLOG: One-Year Editorial Planner)

  • Lots of new worksheets / ESL crosswords to improve your English vocabulary
