Yay – it’s school holidays here… and not a minute too soon. My goodness it’s been a busy and tough couple of weeks with sickness continuing, as well as lots of other bits and pieces. Hannah has had to go up to Dubbo and to Sydney for representative school sport (super proud that anyone with my genetics has athletic ability – clearly from CB’s side of the family!), which has meant a couple of over night trips for CB while I stay home with the younger two, and go to work as well.
So our plans for the holidays include lots and lots of rest and relaxation for the kids, and a chance for me to focus on things other than work. I always like to set a few holiday goals to work towards over the holidays. It makes sure that I actually achieve a few things over and above getting up and dressed every day (which is also a goal!).
These holidays I’m going to do a sort out of the cake decorating and biscuit cutters, a quick cull under the bathroom vanity (just to make sure that stuff hasn’t snuck in there lately), a declutter of my desk (will only take half an hour) as well as ruthlessly go through my teaching resources – If I haven’t used it since moving to the farm, it is going! It is really hard to get rid of old teaching resources because of the time and effort that they represent, but time and technology has moved on, so it’s time to get rid of stuff that is taking up space.
I’m also going to take time to get ahead on the blog. All the sickness of the last few weeks, has reminded me that I need to get organised again (it’s an ongoing theme) so that I have plenty written in advance. I have tons of ideas to start writing about, and projects to do. Time is all I need.
Do you like to set holiday goals? Got anything exciting planned?
