Today is the first day of holidays for most teachers and students in Victoria, Australia.
I am sitting in my lounge room watching Bargain Hunt on television, feeling a little pain but a lot of peace.
It is a good time to bring my thoughts together in words. These are my thoughts:
The working year is finished. I don’t have to plan anything right now, but I will have to at some point in the next month.
As exhausted as I was I attended the staff Christmas social function. I dressed up but I’m not sure I looked ok, I think I looked fat and was boring. I was too tired to know.
My son graduated from his postgraduate study on the weekend and it was a great day. Strangely, I really enjoyed the graduation ceremony and the speeches. I am very proud to have a son who achieves highly academically and who cares a lot about others.
My family visitors have returned home and it was lovely to see them as I won’t see them on Christmas this year. I hope they don’t think that I am becoming a sad, tired lump of a person.
My niece is the cutest little thing. I can’t wait for the next baby to arrive.
I have a short manageable to do list for the next few days. But right now I don’t want to move.
In six days I head to England for 3 weeks of adventure. I have no idea how this will go.
My coughing is gradually going away again and I have to feel well by Sunday, cross fingers.
Tea tastes wonderful on holidays.
Cheers to a restful day.
