Outside my window… the sky is dark, grey and heavy with snow, the setting sun sending up a strange glow through the impenetrable cloud. White blankets every surface and there is a stillness in the air. The pause between the intake of breath and the exhale.
I am thinking… that I love nothing more than curling up cosy in my home on a cold night.
I am thankful… for an early school closure because of the snow and that I have such a lovely home to curl up in! That I get to share it every day with my lovely hubby who happens to be my best friend. That I have such wonderful friends and family around me. That I have such a blessed and amazing life.
In the kitchen… there is currently a yummy stew bubbling away in the slow cooker. Even yummier because it was all made by hubby. How spoilt I am!
I am wearing… two pairs of socks, jeans and the lovely blue roll neck jumper I got for Christmas. Cosy, cosy, cosy!
I am creating… journal pages! I’m doing something a bit different with my journalling at the moment. Having reinvested in my favourite Moleskine week-to-view diary this year, I am using the notes page opposite each week to collect doodles, quotes and lists. It’s very satisfying!
I am going… to get around to typing up the tasks for my HLTA portfolio…really soon…honest…
I am wondering… if we might get another snow day tomorrow!
I am reading… Only Ever You by Louise O’Neill and The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon as well as re-reading Wuthering Heights, Skellig and Private Peaceful in school.
I am praying for… for people I love. Always.
I am hoping… for a restful night’s sleep. I have been tired this week.
I am looking forward to… a girls night with my mum tomorrow! They are far to rare an occasion so I can’t wait!
I am learning… more every day about English as a subject and loving every minute!
Around the house… it’s all looking very homey! We’ve bought some extenders for our bookcases to accommodate the Christmas haul and we’ve got more of our prints and artwork up. Just need to get the old fridge out of the kitchen!
I am pondering… all sorts if things! My mind is quite flighty at the moment. Usually something to do with the state of the world though.
A favourite quote for today…
One of my favourite things… is curling up under a blanket with a good book or a good film and forgetting the world for a bit.
A few plans for the rest of the week: have ann awesome girly night with my mum; do some work on my HLTA folder; get some sleep; spend some quality time with my hubby.
