Nearly there.

I haven't been sleeping too well as I have been worried about getting our new Visa cards before we left the country.Today the postman brought both cards as well as some new camera batteries. Now I just need the book I ordered to arrive before we head to Perth on Wednesday. I have cleaned the laptop back to the original settings, packed it in it's box and put on the label ready for dropping off at school tomorrow. Tomorrow I can concentrate on washing and packing clothes for the trip. I don't think it will be much warmer in London than in Collie.

Preparations for holidays

I have finished at school and handed over my keys to the relief teacher. I still have some reports to finish and a computer to clean up and return as the lease is finished. I think I need to make a list of all the little things I need to do before we board the plane for the UK next week.It doesn't seem quite real. Luckily I still have a few days left. Tonight we are heading into Bunbury to watch a movie. This afternoon I finished reading the second book in the Milenniumq series and can't wait to read the third. I was hoping to be able to buy an iBook version, but no luck there.

Winter has arrived.

This is a long weekend in Western Australia.The weather has been cold, foggy and then sunny, so there are no complaints from me. After a visit to Bunbury farmer's market I have been making soup. Yesterday was leek and potato and today it is pumpkin. I have packed up the leftovers for my DD to take back to Perth.
Creativity is a little stifled at the moment. I have done some knitting, but scrapping is taking a back seat at the moment. I did not get the latest Chookscraps Amazing Race challenge done in time. I need to work on school reports. I only have 2 weeks left at school before I start my long service leave and head off to the UK. Hence the procrastination that is occurring at the moment.
Here is a photo of the berry muffins I made this morning. The recipe is from a website I found recently.
