+ Because I am finishing up next week, I have been frantically trying to get things organised before I leave. I need to write reports, finish up assessments, and do the myriad of little things that need to be done so that I can hand over easily. I have been slogging it out all day, and then coming home to spend a couple of hours finishing up more work at night. It is something that all teachers do, but boy am I tired at the moment!
+ Last weekend Country Boy made chocolate mousse. Toby helped him to lick the bowl. Look at those cheeky chops!
+ The run up to Christmas has well and truly started. I have sooo many ideas about what I would like to do. Craft ideas, food to cook, preparations to make, but the reality is that I am so unprepared compared to most years. Normally I like to have finished buying presents by now, but living in the country means that it is much harder to get it all done. I’m going to spend sometime shopping online over the weekend to try and get some more stuff done.
+ The weather has been warm, and the paddocks are beginning to dry out. We have had very little rain, and the forecasts are predicting a dry summer. Not good news. Because it has been so dry, the pollen count is through the roof, and my hayfever is painful. I went into the chemist before work yesterday, and the assistant took one look at me and said “I know what you need”.
+ Over the weekend, I am going to make some more pumpkin spice cakes. They are one of our favourites, and I took the last one out of the freezer the other day. It will also use up some of the pumpkin I have frozen.
