I must apologise. I have not updated this blog for quite a long time. I have been so focused with school that regrettably, I haven't had a chance to update anything! That will all change very soon! I am currently on my summer holiday break and I am catching up on a lot of things!
So what has been happening? Well, glad you asked! I turned 25 on Christmas day and celebrated with friends and family. Check out the "Minion" cake I made based on the movie, "Despicable Me."
I have only ever worked with fondant one other time and surprisingly this cake was not too difficult to make! I really enjoyed making this cake!

I also learnt how to scuba dive!
I completed a PADI open-water scuba diving course which was awesome!
This was honestly something that was totally out of my comfort zone. The feeling of breathing underwater is totally unnatural! I have swam my whole life and I am a swimming teacher but I had a LOT to learn during my week at the dive centre!
I was absolutely terrified at first but the hard work was definitely worth it! I stepped into another world.
It was breathtaking.
We caught a crayfish hiding under one of the rocks!
We dived to a maximum depth of around 22 metres which was deep enough for me!
What I saw and what I experienced cannot be put into words. It was just unbelievable and I really cannot wait to get back out and explore this world some more!
And finally my big news!
I was offered a position at an amazing school in the city as a Year One teacher!
I am so ecstatic to contribute to this school's outstanding reputation and am looking forward to learning more and any challenges that arise. I say farewell to my little country town & the children who I taught.
What a bittersweet farewell.
My dog, Bronte and I are off to start a new adventure!
I will be in touch soon!
