Currently . . . A Bit Late

It's only 4th January but already Farley's Currently is up to 370 links! That's fantastic! A great testament to the popularity of Farley's blog. Everyone looks forward to the first of the month - so many new blogs to find and old ones to enjoy. Thanks Farley!

So I thought I'd better tack mine on - although I'm not sure if anyone would find mine interesting enough to read... Here goes. .

Listening - I'm not a huge fan of comedy shows - it's on in the background and I just can't peel myself off the chair to do something about it. It really is time for bed...!

Loving - So I bought myself a new jacket in the sales. I already have a great "wet" coat for those rainy days and for walking, but I needed something a little more trendy if you know what I mean. My new jacket is just the job! So snug.

Thinking - I'm into my 6th week of this virus now, and there's just no shifting it. I'm beginning to wonder if it'll still be around this time next year...

Wanting - I have such a lot of planning to do. Those of you who follow me will know that I teach around 120 kids every week, each of whom must have an individually tailored medium term plan. So Planning Fairy, if you're out there, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeease pay me a visit...

Needing - On the last day of term I heard that my contract had been extended for another year. That takes me up to March 2014. I was over the moon. But I definitely need something more long term, and I really need to get me own class again. Which brings me nicely onto my OLW...

OLW - destiny because there's no use fretting about stuff that's out of your control. I am a firm believer that we are in control of our own destiny to a degree, but there are some things (like finding a permanent contract) that are just a little out of my reach. I am also a firm believer that it WILL happen.

Can't stand that comedy show for another minute! Night all . . .


  1. Thanks for visiting my blog! Your blog is so cute! I need a fairy or two or, grading, planning. :) I am looking forward to following you and your blog posts!


  2. love, love, LOVE your OLW! thats a biggie...and if you find that planning fairy, would you send her my way when shes done with yours? ;) Cute blog! thanks for stopping by mine!

  3. Hi There! I'm popping by after finding you over at Oh Boy 4th Grade. Congrats on your contract extension. I love the connection to your OLW. You have an awesome attitude! Have a great weekend!

  4. I understand the desire to get your own class and with that positive attitude, you will. I can't comprehend planning for 120 kiddos. I have enough problem differentiating for 20 in first grade! Send that fairy by my way if you see her!

  5. Destiny! I love that. I, too, don't see the point in worrying when things are beyond your control--you've got to let go and focus on what you can do. Good luck with everything!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message. I read every single one and try to reply to as many as possible.

I Love Amazon
