The PGCE Chronicles : OMFG, I'm Going To Be A Teacher!

A Little Catch Up
This morning I met up with my mum for brunch at Browns.  It was lovely to have a little catch-up and a natter about anything & everything (plus the food was amazing, so that always helps).  So I thought it would be a good excuse to get a tad snap-happy and ...
