Life's fairly bumpy on some big things at the mo - it's one of those time where some plates seem to be shifting and all you can do is knuckle down, hold fast, and wait for the calm to return. I think it's on it's way. And I know, as always, that a few stresses and strains are par for the course, and that blessings are there for the counting. Here are just a few that are totally making me smile at the moment:
The Elbow song 'One Day Like This' (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQIdXKz4sE8 Thank me later :-)). How can you resist the lyrics "Holy cow, I love your eyes...."?
Arranging scavenger hunts for my class - they love it!
My lovely, lovely friends. How blessed am I? I am consistently spoilt with texts and calls and emails and letters and love and comments, and I have people in my life to love and care about and share things with. I love my friends.
I am going to see the Foo Fighters tomorrow. At Wembley. Oh heck YES! When they play this song (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BieVgyrfglQ) I just don't know what I'll do. Love them so, so much, and I only got tickets on Thursday! The gig sold out ages ago, but they released a few thousand tickets this week. And I got two, for Mlle Wilson and I. So, so thrilled!
Tomorrow, there's no Saturday school. So instead I can lie in, write a few reports, come in and straighten up my classroom...then go to London.
Hugs and kisses and cuddles. Mmmmmmm.
Mix CDs. Especially awesome ones!
Looking at photos of recent fun (and less recent fun) and just remembering how wonderful the people around me are.
Good books, and the chance to curl up and read them.
Planning stuff for the Summer of Fabulosity. Oh, it's so on.
And now, it's 8 o'clock Friday, I've worked my socks off all day, and now there's a bottle of wine and some take out with my name on it. Brilliant.
Have an amazing weekend, gorgeous folk!
