New diary

I love stationery. In fact one of the highlights of my teaching year was that first day after summer holidays when you walk into your classroom and are met by 3 massive boxes, filled to the brim with 'stuff'. Post its, highlighters, pends, fat permanent textas, clean exercise books and fresh whiteboard markers. I love it!

I also love diaries. But not just any diary. A diary is a very personal thing. I'm partial to a student diary myself. It has just the right amount of space to write and they're a good size for the handbag. If it's spiral bound, all the better. Come October/November you can usually find me walking around the shops, hunting for the perfect diary. It can take some time! But not this year!

Today, to my amazement, I bought a 2013 diary! Completely by surprise, there it was in Big W for $2!

I have spent my night on the couch with my new diary, my 2012 one, a pack of highlighters and a pen, writing in all the holidays and birthdays and special events for the year ahead. I LOVE thus job and (ahem)I even feel a little sad when the job is done.

Am I the only one who gets excited about such things? ;)

August 31- Today I am grateful for a visit from Lois, my mum in law. Tilly is very lucky to have a gran who loves her so much and I was lucky to have someone to share my lunch with AND to receive a bunch of flowers- thank you! :)
After lunch and a play after Tilly got up, she and I headed to the shops to print some photos for the grandparents while we were there we checked out some father's day 'things' (no clues sorry dad and Tobes!), some toy ideas for Tilly's christmas and birthday and I had a sneaky coffee (and cinnamon doughnut... Shhh!). A very pleasant day indeed.
