It's the first day of the holidays, and already I am making lists of things I need to do.
I find it hard to sit and do nothing - I have an urge to move and be busy. Even on the sofa, I like to have things to do. I'm making a series of dogs over the holiday, for our SEN children at school. Their topic next half term is dogs, and so the SENCo would like a range of creatures!
I've got to rework the school website and find a policy that will improve our e-safety. I've got to plan work and so on for the first week back. I've got the usual stuff to do for school as well as all the extra blog/website stuff.
I've also got to change the boys from the small bedroom to the middle bedroom. This will be a job of epic proportions. EPIC. However, it is doable and I will do it. The AC needs a bigger room. His room will turn into the reptile room.
Today though, I need to finish the kitchen and think about what colour we're going to paint it. J favours a rich red, I like pale greens and blues. Ultimately though, I don't mind.
Today we talked about the fish tank, and he suddenly stopped, and had a moment of "Yeah, but when we move it'll be a pain in the ......... oh wait........ we don't have to move." He's right. We never have to move unless we choose to. No-one is going to go to his work and tell him he has to move to a new house. No-one is going to post him to a new base. This is our house. We own it. (admittedly with a mortgage, but I'm working on that!) we can paint it how we like, put what we like in it, do what we like to it. It's more than a house, it's our home.
Anyway, I must get on with my list of things to do. For the next little while, this will involve the kitchen, and probably Dave on tvcatchup.
