It's all going well so far....

Well, I've done it.

I've applied for the job I never thought I would apply for, I've filled in the forms, got the references and done it.  I have had an acknowledgement of the application.

All I have to do now is wait.


We know I'm not good at waiting Dear Reader.  The closing date is 2/Mar/15.  The interview date is 18/Mar/15.  Then I'll know, one way or the other.

But it's all going well so far.  My children can walk around the Maypole and make the right pattern if I call it for them.  This is a good thing!  They are only little.


This isn't what I want to write about.  I can feel something bubbling under the surface of my mind, waiting for me to let it out to be written about.

This post officially makes no sense.  Well, never mind.  There is a post here.

Sea change? All change.......

There is a change going through my house/life/soul at the moment.

Several things are going on which I am completely happy with.

One I'm not mentioning until I get somewhere.  If I get somewhere.  It involves a job application.......

The other, more important change, is in me.

I have kept a Bullet Journal for ages.  I find it really useful, but I wasn't using it the way it should be used, it was more of a task list.  This week, I think I've cracked it.

I'll put photos in another post, but I have one page for tasks, and the opposite page for other things.

Initially the 'other things' were

Boring things I achieved today
Things I did today for me.
Up and Bed
Things to buy

Over the last week, partly due to lots of thinking, partly due to reading 'One Thousand Gifts' AGAIN,  my "Boring things I achieved today " has changed to "Things to be thankful I can do - not boring but necessary" and finally to "Ways I choose to bless my family"

Nothing else has changed.  It is this change in attitude that is important though.  Yes, I'm the one who always does lots in the house.  I can choose for it to be a chore, or I can choose for it to be a way I bless my family, and show them I love them.

I'm not always going to get it right, but it feels nicer, and I seem to have a lot more done!

Pictures to follow!

You know sometimes....

.....when something really speaks to you?

I want to put this up in my classroom where I can see it. It came from the Methodist Church website and is the prayer for today.

Be a light, O Lord, to our eyes, and music to our ears. Be sweetness to our taste and contentment to our hearts. Be sunshine to our days and food at our table. Be rest in our night and sufficiency in our hour of need. Be liberty in our life and everlasting glory at our death; through our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

John Cosin (1594-1672)

Loving that.
