things I am looking forward to:
Mum and Dad are coming to visit.
I get to see Jayme and Maya and Donald soon.
Hopefully everything will go well at exam season and I can put on my proud teacher smile.
The salad in the big green box is almost ready to be harvested.
There is a small chance I will be able to grow several vegetables successfully this year.
Monday is bank holiday and Ant and I can practise our German together.
The older you get the more you learn.
There are so many good books waiting to be read.
A quiet afternoon means my brain can rest and meander.
things I am glad are now in the past:
The stress of the last few weeks has been grinding me down.
Ant did all the washing up today.
The dark and cold weather is over now (mostly, in theory).
Being an adult with a good job means I am no longer living hand-to-mouth.
My thirtieth birthday is long gone (since I have been inflating my age by five years since I started teaching).
