Yes I know I am trying in all senses of the word.
:: I am trying to Get. Stuff. Done. I’ve written and rewritten my do list today and I am getting through it. I just had to put a couple of items on the list that I’d already completed just to give me more impetus.
:: I am trying to be patient when hearing my child read. Give me my due, for the most part I am. Unless she’s making no effort and then I feel really annoyed. She doesn’t know this yet. I guess you have to get her at the ‘right’ moment. And me at the right moment too.
:: I am trying not to be too disappointed it’s raining. Again.
:: I am trying to get bulbs into the garden in the few moments that LittleR is asleep. She loves to be outside but has to constantly monitored leaving no room for bulb digging.
:: I am trying to look forward to a few days off.
:: I am trying to believe that these all won’t be 5.30am get up times.
:: I am trying not to wish my children’s lives away but really do hope they start getting up after 6am! That seems far more civilised.
:: I am trying to be more prepared for that thing that happens as the same time every year in December.
:: I am trying to hold off on buying a new notebook to prepare for that thing that happens in December.
:: I am trying to think of some more personal gifts for friends. I’ve had an idea of embroidered decorations…we’ll see…watch this space.
:: I am trying not to be too cross with a school that gives 2 days’ notice for a costume on the theme of ‘a hero’. Yes, she does want to go dressed as Elsa.
:: I am trying to read a very dull academic paper and failing.
:: I am trying to look for solutions to the CD/DVD explosion we have in the corner of our living room. I’m thinking of recycling the cases and using an big CD/DVD envelope. We hardly play CDs now as they’re all on the computer. That means more space for cookery books!
:: I am trying to remember that in amongst all the trivial things, I am trying and that’s something.
(Don't you think the pink primrose at the back looks like she's waving and shouting 'I'm over here!')
