Our Week.

My creation

Making:
 Peach cream pie. Notes on Science and English textbooks. Lists, always. 
Cooking:
 Chicken pitta pockets. Gammon, egg and chips. Carrot soup. 
Drinking:
 ALL THE COFFEE. 
Eating: Nothing right now, surprisingly. Being so busy in the evenings has almost curbed my rubbish evening snacking habits, woohoo. 
Reading:
 The children's novel Skellig. All the picture books. Daniel's reading book, every day. A bunch of poetry books. I'm reading more now than I have in a long time, and I'm loving it. 
Playing: Football. Trains. Monkey Around. Superheroes. Diggers. All the games. 
Drawing: up a plan of action for all aspects of my life, from housework to blogging to studying. 
Wanting:
 A fur rug, a huge bookshelf and a waste paper bin for the office. I bought a chair yesterday in IKEA and it's got me dreaming. 
Wearing: Stripes, jumpers, scarves, plaid & ankle boots. Hello fall. I'm playing along with a few style challenges on IG too which is fun. 
Looking:
 forward to another day off tomorrow! We have an INSET day at school, so we're going to chill out, pop to the library and do some baking. Fingers crossed for a lie in too, I can dream. 
Wasting:
 less time mindlessly watching television. Colin and I have just started watching Suits (which is really good!) but with all the other jobs I have to do I'm not watching much else.  
Enjoying:
 Spending more quality time with the boys, doing activities and 'learning' with D. 
Liking:
 Experimenting with mixing patterns. Taking a little time for myself and not feeling guilty.  Getting creative with food. Twitter, despite a hiatus for a few weeks. 
Loving: 
Salted caramel coffee syrup. Looking through old photos, even just a few weeks old. Curling up on the sofa with C to watch a show. Making memories. 
Hoping:
 I will pick up my camera more this week. I always say I will, but it has been gathering dust for the last couple of weeks and I feel pretty bad about it. 
Marveling:
 at how stubborn my youngest is, I have never realised quite how stubborn I am either until now. Face offs over bedtimes are still happening on a daily basis. Someone promise me it will get better soon, or send me boxes of wine. 
Teaching: myself patience, Joshua good choices and Daniel how to hold a pen and form letters 'correctly'. Cursive is such a faff. 

Bee.
