Currently September!

September!  For lots of you that means back to school, but for us here in Queensland it means that Spring holidays will arrive very soon!!  I'm linking up with Farley for her Currently. :)

How awesome is Katy Perry's new song?!  I'm listening to it on my way to school in the mornings and belting it out as loud as I can.  It's a great energizer. :)

I've got a very affectionate group of kidlets this year and I am loving all of the cuddles I've been getting from them lately.  How lucky we are to spend our days with children.

Two and a half more weeks of school and then HOLIDAYS! Can't stop thinking of all the relaxing I'll be doing. :)

After spending last year far from the beach in Canada, my supply of cute togs is seriously dwindling!  I'm wanting a new pair or two - in navy/red and maybe a polkadot print.

At the end of a busy, busy term I am needing a day at the beach.  Not just a walk or a swim - a whole day reading, snoozing and eating ice-cream.  Luckily I live close enough that I'll get lots of those days during the holidays.

The three things that I would like to accomplish this month are pretty straightforward.  It's so easy to let school life take over and push other things to the side.  I always feel more relaxed and in control when I have time to myself and an organised house, so that's what my September goals are. :)



  1. I agree that school tends to take over. I usually let it do that here too. It's so hard to not let it. I almost never have a clean house during the school year:(

  2. Thanks for the US note -- I would have never known what togs are. I'm learning something new before 6 am! :)

    I totally agree that it's easy to let school take over. That is one of my goals for this year {although I didn't write it in my Currently}: don't let teaching be my entire life. I definitely want to be a dedicated and good teacher, but I'm trying to remind myself that the best teachers are ones who take time for themselves and are able to come back refreshed and relaxed. Good luck!
