Outside my window... the sky's grey and the city lights are starting to twinkle
I am thinking... about being weighed down by my things-to-do list - always a sure sign that I'm too tired
I am thankful for... a car and a partner that got home in one piece last night - even if it was at 2am
From the learning rooms... a still-not-finished PhD chapter, but it'll be done tomorrow!
From the kitchen... yet more pancakes, of course
I am wearing... new shoes! A rather uninspiring, but comfortable, charity shop find
I am creating... extremely cheery bits of customising for my uninspiring new shoes! Photos to follow...
I am going... downstairs, to tidy up, and then to rest
I am reading... a story about a North Yorkshire rural policeman
I am hoping... that tonight will be restful, and tomorrow more energised
I am hearing... power tools from the street. So many people building, making, doing...
Around the house... a bit of sweeping and tidying and putting away, and contemplating bigger projects for tomorrow
One of my favorite things... curling up on the sofa with a blanket
A few plans for the rest of the week: chopping branches, a little creativity in the garden, starting to think about Christmas (did I really just say that???)
Not a hugely positive rambling from me today I'm afraid! I'm far too tired after last night's fiasco, and really should have taken a nap earlier. However, I didn't, so I'm heading for an early night instead. Back tomorrow with photos of my cheery little shoes project which took all of five minutes and lifted my spirits enormously!
