This week...

It's the first week of term! A brand new academic year.

Two days of meetings (sigh. I am not so good at meetings).

Then on Wednesday the boys arrive. I am looking forward to meeting my new classes!

Feeling: very busy, but also excited. I love September and the back to school feeling, the crisper turn to the breeze, the freshly sharpened pencils...

Thinking: about school, about friends, about upcoming excitements.

Making: displays and welcome packs, it feels like! Oh, and cupcakes for the start of year for my colleagues.

Doing: lots of work, plenty of homemaking, and a healthy whack of working out / socialising / collapsing on the couch.

Reading: I've almost finished 'A Clash of Kings'. Am loving the whole series, but will probably switch to a couple of lighter reads before going back onto the third in the saga (I like to read a good range!).

Writing: medium term plans and letters and to do lists.

Watching: Sky Atlantic are showing the third season of Big Love, and it's becoming quite the weekly treat.

Eating: sensibly. With occasional cupcakes.

Drinking: lots of water.

Listening: to old mix CDs, and cheesey tunes on Heart as I cook and clean in the evenings.

Working: pretty darn hard!

Wishing: for a good start to the term.

Looking forward to: Catch ups with Shona, Siobhán, Lou and Ems later in the month; to hearing all about Eileen's holiday; to meeting my new students; to a lazy weekend after the madness of start of term; to a cup of tea and a cuddle this evening.

Have a great week, all! :)

Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

About Me

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
