August Currently

I completely forgot it was August until I went onto Bloglovin to read some blogs... I'm out of it! Being sick, having PT interviews and organising 110 things at work will do that I guess. I'll be very glad when this week is over! Anyway, seeing that Farley had made her post cheered me up and it's time to figure out what I'm up to in August.

Listening- I have treated myself to an early (as in 30 mins after the bell went rather than 2 hours after) Friday afternoon at home to make up for the 2 really late nights I had this week. Bold n the Beautiful has a serious crisis going on & I love that I can follow it even though I only see it about once every 6 months.

Loving- I've been holding on to this one for awhile but I'm heading off to London soon for a study tour. Yay! Can't believe I was accepted and are now just counting done to go and hoping that I'll be organised.

Thinking- Major school night tomorrow (Saturday) and I'm in charge. Be very glad when it's over and hopefully all goes smoothly.

Wanting- I'm sick (again) so more energy would be lovely. Currently overdosing on lemon in hot water, vitamins and cold n flu tablets. Fun.

Needing- Sleep! Having two late nights in a row at work (PT interviews til 7pm and a night where I decided my room was filthy and stayed until 6.30pm to clean) was not the best idea and tomorrow night will be another late one. Planning to catch some zzz's tonight and maybe a nanna nap tomorrow.

We're only mid-year here but my go to list is...
1. Clothes make me cheery and lots of bright necklaces, funny badges, etc. I find the more effort I put into what I wear the better my outlook will be. I wore my apple core necklace yesterday.. the kids were grossed out :)

2. Anything cute for my room like last year's haul. Love my apple post it note holder.

3. Wish I'd found Mel's sentence packet earlier. I love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. We both have sleep on the mind. I WANT it, but it seems like you NEED it :P
    And lol at the Apple Core. I think I'll need something on my desk that will make some of my students go "Eww..."
    Glad to find a new blog!

  3. LONDON! I'm so jealous. Although ... how long of a flight is it from Australia? Cause the long flight from Texas is bad enough!

    Do you know the "Rocket" books (Tad Hills)? Rocket Learns to Read and Rocket Writes a Story? I just saw the new board book Rocket's Mighty Words the other day and thought it would be great in a kinder/first grade writing center. It's really just a visual dictionary so I'm not sure why Amazon suggests it for storytime. But as a visual dictionary in the writing classroom it's so fun!

    1. Lol I just looked up how long the flight from texas to london is- 10 hours? It is a 24 hour flight from Melbourne- we have to stop in dubai (or singapore) on the way. Doesn't quite compare! Haven't heard of the Rocket books but I will look them up- thanks for the tip!

  4. Hello! When you are in London, I'll just be starting my school year in Spain. Feel free to hop on over to Madrid and say hello! : ) Also, thank you so much for donating to my giveaway! Would you mind sending me your email address so I can send you the winner's information? ( Thank you so much!
