Outside my Window…it’s a very ‘fresh’ day here in the middle of England. The sun is shining, but it belies the coolness in the air.
I am thinking…how many arguments do i have to have with my son over the time he spends gaming. It is becoming more draining than ever. The PS3 is now sitting in the hall, i have told him to take it to his Dad’s as it’s causing too much animosity here, whether i will give in and allow him to take it back upstairs is another thing entirely.
From the learning rooms…I am learning that all those books about good parenting were a complete waste of money.
I am thankful for…the dog coming and sitting next to me as i type this, i am feeling like a crummy mummy and she is just as loving as ever. Oops spoke too soon, she has gone to sit in a patch of sunshine shining through the window, making a pool of warm light on the carpet at the other side of the lounge. Traitor.
From the kitchen…I have to rustle up something to cook for tonight’s evening meal and i don’t know at the moment what that might be…..it will be a ‘throw together’ meal…..throw it all together and hope it tastes alright!
I am wearing…stretchy trousers and a top (thanky God for lycra), they’e comfy but show up all the lumps i have in the wrong places. It’s okay, i’m not going out today except to do the school run….and then no one can really see me!
I am reading…blogs and emails.
I am hoping… to write up three weeks of college notes later today, or at least make a start on it as it has to go into my portfolio, to be marked.
I am creating… i am going to be ‘kitchen creative’ and conjouring up a meal for tonight!
I am hearing…the sound of the phone i didn’t get to in time to answer, aparrantly the caller witheld their number. I hate that.
Around the house…Blogging, tidying the lounge, washing the dishes.
One of my favorite things…my red shoes.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week…i’d like to get the grass mown but I haven’t felt up to it for a while, don’t know if i will be able to do it or if it will be too late to get one last mow in before the grass is just too wet to mow for the rest of this year.
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you…
my red shoes!
