So I’m sticking with Project Life, and am loving that it’s reminding me to take photos! It’s a really neat way to look back over the weeks and months. I’m linking up once again with the lovely Jessica‘s Project Life Tuesdays, as I hope to do every fortnight. Keeps me focused to catching up with the project every couple of weeks at least, and I love seeing how others are getting on. Enjoy!
January 9th: A skinny vanilla latte and the walk home. As we start to realise that we’ll be leaving NW3 at some point over the next year (we hope!) for a home in East London, I’m taking the time to really enjoy and savour the little joys of NW3. Walking home from school is definitely one of them.
January 10th: My Christmas present from Matthew was this gorgeous planner from Erin Condren – personalised with badgers, of course! The front badger is for work (most serious) – the one on the back is frolicking and ready to play!
January 12th: a fun day! Work was busy (seriously, is it ever *not* busy?), then I popped into dance class before meeting Eileen for sushi – my first proper sushi, actually! Fear I may now be addicted…
(Friday) 13th January: Eek! A busy day at school, where amongst other things I taught the boys about friggatriskadekaphobia. Never let it be said we don’t strive for a rounded education. Was shattered by the end of the day so I headed home and finished a book in a night. This book was terrifying!
14th January: Matthew and I headed up to Forres for the 30th birthday of my dear friend Erin, who was having a party with another girl from school. We spent most of the night (when not cutting a rug on the dancefloor to 90s cheese!) chatting with Sam and Julie in the naughty corner. Fun night!
January 16th: After work Eileen and I headed to a book reading (with *quite* an interesting crowd…) to promote a new book called ‘Tired of London, Tired of Life’. After that we headed to Trojka for soup, latkes and awesome pancakes.
January 18th: One of my favourite things to do as a teacher is to call, write or email when a boy is doing really well. This was the perfect day to break out the ‘A Note From Miss Thornley’ postcards.
January 21st: Had lots of fun on my first DIAD (Done In A Day) with the Junior League, painting a hallway and some doors for the sweetest lady. No photo on the blog, but it was super fun. And later in the day Eileen and I went for cake and I had the best red velvet. Seriously, just typing the sentence is making me crave it!
January 22nd: On birthdays and suchlike, the boys often bring in cakes. One boy brought these darling personalised cakes in – could they be more precious? I saved mine till Sunday so Matthew and I could enjoy it with a cup of tea, and I may steal this idea for a future birthday of mine!
