It's sunny today but it is windy. Spring in Wellington is really bizarre, and often wetter than winter, but I can't imagine that this year, surely... it's morning and I'm sitting in bed and Steve has brought me coffee OMG! *g*

I get a haircut soon, that will be exciting. I don't like having it done, in fact I hate it, but the hairdresser is a genius so I can feel reasonably comfortable that she'll turn me out looking acceptable! And I know I didn't post pictures last time... maybe this time.... *snort* friends only LOL!

I spent yesterday afternoon at school helping one of my senior students. She has a heap of family troubles and is one amazing girl, getting by all by herself really, without even a home to call her own at the moment and in the process of having her mother charged with assault. And yet she's vital and lively and positive and I just know she'll come through all this and shine. I just need to get her to pass Level 3 and get UE and then she can decide what to do next.

We seem to be running out of time in the holidays, Finn has a heap of maths to do and at least two books to read, Christy has maths and chemistry study, a whack of paintings to finish and a whole design portfolio to work on, not to mention a couple of English essays. Asher seems to have got off scot-free but I'd like him to do some maths study. I just don't think he knows how! And me, OMG no matter what I do I never seem to get my work DONE! Aaaaaaaaaaaaargh. I am the most inefficient worker in the world, I swear. I need to make some New Years' Resolutions NOW!
Here goes, in public, the things I struggle with the most...
I will do ALL my marking as it comes in and not put it off.
I will answer ALL my work emails.
I will check my phone messages EVERY day.
I will keep my diary UP TO DATE.
I will plan ALL my lessons, thoroughly, with homework, and written up afterwards.
...is that too much to hope for? It really shouldn't be... I won't add keep my desk completely tidy but that would help too, huh... *sigh* Okay, tidy desk as well.

There. Done. What's next...

ETA: Done the school emails, right here from my bed. And hey there, suilven, I'm glad you are getting some sunshine over there. xx

How can you possibly call yourself "the most inefficient worker in the world"?! Every time I read one of your lj posts I'm amazed at the amount of things you manage to get done, and I know that's only the stuff you think worth writing about - there must be loads more that you do that we never even hear about.

Seriously, cut yourself a break: you do more in a day than most of us manage in a week, and you still find the time to care about your friends. It's truly awe-inspiring.

Hee, you're so kind, Hannah babe!
-there must be loads more that you do that we never even hear about.
If I told you all the things I actually do... after staying in bed late, today I painted half the bathroom, had a haircut, worked at school for a while, went to a liturgy meeting, cooked dinner, organised four people to do things for First Communion next week, you know, the usual... *g*

But there is always so much more to do!! OMG! But thanks, you make me feel good VBG!!!
