I actually feel on top of things today - a pleasant day at school (well trying to find information on-line around steam and in a context/level that my year 5/6 students could understand, has been a challenge... we've resorted back to good old books...); lots of books covered, but the new book piles just expands. Upgrade of library system is going well.
Essay plodding along - I will say that I find APA pedantic and a waste of time... better things to do with my life quite frankly!
Another car load taken to the op shop - I am really liking the not-so-much-stuff mantra and the house just looks less cluttered (we really don't own lots of stuff, but it was easy to get rid of multiple pairs of shoes from my wardrobe; anything that had not been worn in a year has gone; bikes; toys; camping stuff - if it has not been used in a while it has gone!).
Added onto that is the lowest credit card bill in centuries once again - my cash budget is going really well and we are saving half of our combined wages easily - just not buying stuff! One kid has his birthday in a few weeks and wants a new desk/chair, which is fine.
We don't do Mother's Day - I call it commercial claptrap - I get brekkie in bed all the time, husband cooks dinner all the time etc. Neither of us even rung our mums. The husband wanted to take me shopping, but I don't need or want anything, so I declined. I think the boys may have said happy mothers day, but that's where it ended.
Anyway, going through stuff, I found this stationery pack - it has 2 notebooks, 2 pens and a pencil case - just leave a comment below and I'll decide a winner next week - open worldwide!
