We are half way through the year and what a year it has been. I am looking forward to reading what everyone else is up to in this linky party......."Learning with Literature Blog") is making us breakfast and I just love the sound of our coffee machine grinding the beans and making fresh coffee. Our 18 year old when he hears it wakes up and usually joins us - but he is at a mates.
Loving - if I only argue about the state of a bedroom, shoes left in the entry, a glass in the sink and not the dishwasher - what do I have to complain about when living with an 18 and almost 16 year old!
Thinking - Imogen turns 16 this month and what to do for her special day? She is doing photography and maybe a new camera is the go. We will have a house full of giggling, non sleeping teenagers - but how gorgeous is that?
Wanting - to see my sister. One of my sisters is having a tough time. Her husband passed away a few years ago and that is tough enough. One of her children has been very ill and it has been hard for her to juggle work, hospital and life. I am glad that my Mum. Dad and brother are close by to help her when they can.
Needing - to challenge myself to read something that is not school related. I have on my iPAD to read - The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion - God's Callgirl by Carla Van Raay (had that one for 6 months) - Slave by Mende Nazer.
Tips and Tricks - to have a work life balance. I am great at helping staff to do this, but hopeless at it myself. While I make time for my family, I need a bit of me time squeezed in there somewhere.
