Life updates and shiz

So hello internet friends…. how are you? The last month of so has been so stressful around these parts that I haven’t got beyond book reviews… and I’m sorry! Our car was smashed in to, our washing machine broke down and things got so horrendously stressful with my course that I kind of just shut down for a while. Only the bare minimum was done, no more.

But today, for the first time in a  while I feel hopeful. The washing machine is fixed, the car is back and working and I finally feel just about on top of my university work and teaching. All in all a good start to the weekend- if only the weather would start co-operating and this grey bank of clouds that surrounds my house would lift. But I’m resigned to the fact that I can’t have everything!

But we are focusing on the good things here people…

– having finished my planning for the next week

– good coffee on a Saturday morning

– hugs

– rediscovering books I haven’t read for a year or so in preparation for what looks like a very good film coming at the end of this month.

So I hope that each of your weekends is peaceful and fulfilling.

Snow Day

Is it just me who thinks the snow looks a little sad after its been hanging around for a few days?

I took this photo earlier this week. I think its one of my favourite ones to date.

How has your new year started out friends? I’m enjoying 2012 so far- I think its going to be a good one!

The view from the train this morning. Beautiful as it is, all I really want is a lie in!

(I wrote this poem mostly because I love to watch birds flock.)

A murmeration

undulating across the sky

dancing, swooping and soaring


and turning,

leading my heart-

sweeping above the clouds

towards the sun.


The hope of flying

holding my hand through winter.

This is a good pile of books to have next to my bed on my too read list….

Lunch Time

I figured I needed some good fuel to teach well so I made this for my lunch. It tasted great but still, today was one of those days where I felt everything went wrong, even though I was assured by my supervisor that it didn’t.
