Outside my window... the sun's trying to sneak through the clouds
I am thinking... about reassessing my priorities and where I put my time and energy
I am thankful for... a positive hospital visit today and a body that seems to be righting itself without medication
From the learning rooms... a fog of despair and a mind full of drudgery (oh dear!)
From the kitchen... pancakes, mostly!
I am wearing... new red and white stripey pumps, a black-and-yellow-and-pink-and-green-and-red-and-white swirly skirt, and my new kingfisher green cardigan!!!
I am creating... a present for a friend for no particular reason
I am going... upstairs to the attic to work on a chapter, just as soon as I've finished this cup of tea.
I am reading... books about doing qualitative research, and wondering why on earth I didn't read them several years ago
I am hoping... to get all this writing done before Christmas. Fingers crossed, oh, I'm hoping so much on this one!
I am hearing... Peter curled up on the sofa with a lemsip watching a film in the next room
Around the house... washing that needs doing, floors that need sweeping, piles of things that need to be somewhere else....
One of my favorite things... a nice cup of tea, of course
A few plans for the rest of the week... Saturday morning tea-and-cake at the Women's Institute, more writing, blackberry picking, a little tidying and rearranging, taming the unruly garden, a visit to the library, and an evening in alone with the sewing machine
