Outside My Window ... grey. Not sure how much it is just early morning grey, and how much it is cloudy-rainy grey.
I am thinking ... it is seven o'clock in the morning. Much too early for thinking.
From the learning rooms ... busy, busy, busy. Lots of homework over the weekend for Angel and Star (there always seems to be a homework bulge at the beginning of a school year - new teachers working out who is at what stage, I think).
I am thankful ... that the new term time routine is working out. Last week was busy, but manageable.
From the kitchen ... the menu plan is running like clockwork so far. Chilli tonight, and I promised Cherub we would cook some pretty biscuits from her Fairy Cooking book.
I am wearing ... black and white pyjamas, blue dressing gown.
I am creating ... a Bitterroot shawl for my Mum in pale green, and matching socks. The shawl is almost done (about twenty rows to go), and I have knitted the leg of the first sock. Doubt I will finish them before her birthday next week, so may have to wrap a single sock on account!
I am going ... nowhere in particular this week. Just the usual stuff.
I am reading ... Bad Science by Ben Goldacre.
I am hoping ... I can keep up my good start with exercise. Hoping to do more swimming this week.
I am hearing ... Charlie and Lola on TV (sometimes I think Cherub is Lola!).
Around the house ... a beautifully tidy desk, and less clutter in the dining room. Hoping to make a little more progress this week.
One of my favorite things ... Cherub and Star lying in bed next to me, holding hands.
A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week ... usual school and dance routine for girls; record office, band and orchestra for me; Yom Kippur for Tevye on Saturday; nothing else out of the ordinary on the calendar.
