I am thinking ... how nice it would be to be able to go to sleep when I want and wake up when I want, without any night time interruptions. Even for a week!
From the learning rooms ... just about managed to keep up with my studying over half term. Angel and Star went back to school today, Cherub goes back tomorrow.
I am thankful ... that we normally have a dishwasher. And that the non-functioning dishwasher is still under warranty.
From the kitchen ... something instant from the freezer tonight as I will be out all day. On the menu for this week - mince and sweet potato pie, chicken pie, beef casserole, not sure what else!
I am wearing ... dark grey cord trousers, red roll neck jumper over black long sleeved t-shirt, stripy socks
I am going ... to the London Aquarium today, with Cherub, Little Friend N and his mum
I am reading ... The Secret Diary of a New Mum (age 43 1/4) by Ceri Rosen on Kindle and French Women Don't Get Fat by Mireille Guiliano on paper.
I am hoping ... the nasty bruise on my back goes away soon. I had a disagreement with a table while playing Blind Man's Buffles with Cherub on Saturday. I caught her next the sofa, went to sit down, but had misjudged my position and crashed into a coffee table instead.
I am hearing ... Cherub playing games on the computer.
Around the house ... mud on the carpet (unavoidable in this weather). Also boots and shoes seem to be breeding. If they keep multiplying at this rate we won't be able to get in or out of the front door.
One of my favourite things ... spring. Please come soon!
A few plans for the rest of the week ... London today; an orthodontist's appointment for Angel tomorrow - Tevye is taking her as I need to get an assignment done; school technology competition for Angel on Friday (she has been chosen as part of her school team). I think that is all for the week, though have a feeling I may have forgotten something!
