Hello! It's been too long between blog posts. Life has been busy and by the time everyone is in bed I have just been wanting to curl up and read or watch some online programmes. So I thought I would do another one of Pip's lists which is always a good way to have a catch up.
Making: tactile story books for our blind students. Love that I get to craft at work.
Cooking: Soups. As soon as the cooler weather calls in I dust off my crockpot.
Drinking: Coffee. Loving plain old instant coffee at the moment with lots of milk and sugar.
Reading: Maeve Binchy books over again, just finished Evening Class and about to start Tara Road.
Wanting: winter boots, a bigger china cabinet and WORLD PEACE!
Looking: at Retro Caravans online.............waiting for the perfect one and saving our pennies.
Playing: Snap! Jeez 6 year olds are sore losers.
Deciding: on what to plant in my vegetable garden for winter.
Wishing: I had started my Te Reo Maori classes sooner, loving be in the classroom again.
Enjoying: my job and the people I work with and meet.
Waiting: for the cooler weather to arrive. Can't wait to light the fire again. And hibernate a little.
Liking: my Friday's off with George. We make no plans and just see where the day takes us.
Wondering: about the upcoming school holidays. 2 weeks off. I only work Term Time, hooray!
Loving: weekly date nights. Have really been making an effort to head out once a week with Mr H.
Pondering: Hoola Hooping. A friend loves it and wants me to go along. I think I look crazy doing it.
Watching: The Missing, Location, Location, Location (always my favourite) and The Club online.
Hoping: the mice won't visit now that the maize has been harvested over the fence. Eek.
Marvelling: at Kimberley and all that she does. So much energy!
Needing: a hair cut and colour amongst other "grooming" requirements
Smelling: scented candles. When the boys are in bed I light a few around the house. So pretty.
Wearing: dresses and saltwater sandals, although the last few mornings my feet have been cold.
Following: my Kiwi friend Kath and her new adventures in Canada with her family
Noticing: the shorter evenings.....the dark is creeping in earlier and earlier.
Knowing: the Vintage Season (Wine Harvest) will eventually finish so we can have Mr H back.
Thinking: we were lucky that Cyclone Pam was easy on us. Poor Vanuatu took a hammering.
Admiring: my clever friend Leigh and her new range of beautiful prints.
Buying: Birthday presents for George. He turns 4 this week. I need another baby.
Getting: excited for my sisters arrival on Thursday - a flying visit with her children.
Bookmarking: clothing ideas for a winter wardrobe.
Opening: a blog swap parcel all the way from France!
Giggling: about conversations with Tom. Very interested in what words he is not allowed to say.
Feeling: busy, motivated and tired but happy.
Have a great week xo
