Me on Monday

Monday morning finds me feeling content, relaxed and generally happy with my lot.  I have a full day of teaching, after which I plan do a bit of shopping, bank some cheques and post a couple of parcels.  I have friends coming round tonight for a bring and share meal, which I'm really looking forward to.
The weekend was surprisingly calm after a busy start.  Instead of the usual band practice we took the children busking in Melksham for a couple of hours.  Thankfully it didn't rain, but when the sun disappeared it was freezing!  Unfortunately there was a very cold wind, so a morning spent pegging the music to the stand, holding said stand to stop it blowing over, and still playing our instruments ... all character building stuff, and a hot chocolate at the half time break cheered us up!  I don't know how much money we collected yet, but people seemed to be very generous considering it was the day after Comic Relief.
I called in for a coffee and a catch up with friends on the way home and then spent the rest of the afternoon on housework and laundry duties.  I was finished with all of that by about 4:30pm, did a bit of lesson planning and then settled down for a cosy night in - mostly blog reading and playing online backgammon.
Sunday morning I did a bit more sorting, and also took rest of the photos I needed for the Winter Photographic Scavenger Hunt.  I'll do the post about them later in the week.  I did a bit of pottering in the garden in the afternoon, but it was too cold to stay out for long, so I spent the rest of the day curled up on the sofa reading, drinking coffee and eating.  Bliss!

  1. To wake up on a Monday morning content with the world..that's a very good thing. May the rest of the week be a great one Eilleen.

  2. It was a very cold weekend wasn't it. I remember well trying to keep music on the stand when a gale is blowing and getting frozen to the bone, hot chocolate was always welcome!

  3. Brave you playing in the cold and fighting the wind with pegs! Feeling content on a Monday morning sounds a good thing to be. I hope it lasts all week.
