Currently July!

If you have never linked up with Farley's Currently, you should!! You meet new bloggers and read about lots of intereting things. And of course, Farley's posts

Listening - Monday. First day of our 2 week school holidays. Kindergarten daughter bugging me to engage in educational activities. Go watch the TV was my reply (I just need a break!!)

Loving - It has rained pretty much non stop for over a week here in Sydney. But today...sunshine! Mild weather! It is amazing how a bit of sun changes your whole mood. And just in time for 2 weeks at home.

Thinking - I have a prac student who is up to her last week where she controls the class for the whole day. The last 3 weeks of school she was with me she taught lessons, sessions...all building to the day. When I told her she had complete control over programming and all, she was a bit stunned. This is the place for experiments, I told her. While I am here for support, take some risks. If you succeed - GREAT! If it fails, no worries :) Do you remember your prac experiences?

Wanting - time by my self!!!

Needing - to keep on track. I joined Weight Watchers 2 weeks ago and since then I have lost 1.9kg and 1.3kg. I am pretty stoked and past the super hungry phase. Just got to keep it up.

Tips - My kids (4 and 5) are wicked balls of energy! It takes a lot to run them down but on those days...and it gets to 7.45pm...and I am sitting on the lounge is a pretty good day.

Go link up!!
