It's Currently January!

We're almost halfway through the first day of 2015 here in Australia, and what better way to start the year than by linking up with Farley for her Currently party?

I live close enough to the beach that during holiday time it gets very busy right around my house!  This morning I'm listening to the noise of families walking past and kids laughing in the pools close by as we get set for another scorcher! We've had a few days of glorious sunshine after a cloudy week or so and it has been absolutely perfect for a soak in the sun followed by a dip in the Pacific. :)

Earlier this week I was able to go and pick up the Christmas gift I had made for myself.  I'm loving my green amethyst and diamond ring!

There's still a few more weeks of break before the new school year starts for us, but I've been thinking of all the things I'd like to get done before then.  Lots of organising needs to happen here at home and of course there's the never-ending 'to do' list that we all have swirling around in our minds as we get ready to set up our classrooms and welcome a new bunch of kidlets.  I've been very busily pinning so I think I need to tackle one project each day!

I don't usually make any resolutions for the new year, but there's a few things in my life I'm wanting to change to make sure I start 2015 off on the right foot.  I need to be consistent with planning ahead at school, make sure I'm organised to eat well, take advantage of where I live and spend more time at the beach, and be sure to spend my money wisely! I've made a little subway art print to put in a frame both at home and on my desk at school so hopefully that will motivate me a little. 

As soon as school goes back I'll be wishing I was at the beach so I need to make the most of it while I can.  I think today it will be a late afternoon walk and swim.

Yes: I must do a better job this year of tracking my kidlets' data!  I plan to use Three Ring to help.
Maybe: I've been hemming and hawing about buying a little beachside apartment... I need to look into it to see if it's possible for me and if there's anything on the market that suits.
A wish: Travel! Always. Googling flights has become my hobby. :)

Head on over to the linky to read what everyone else is Currently doing as we celebrate the beginning of a brand new year!
