October has begun...

... and the work-load hasn't gone down in the slightest!
I'm not complaining - I am doing what I love (teaching a huge variety of people), in hours that suit me, often from home, which suits the boys, and getting paid for it!
However blogging, and also painting our half-completed front door, are really taking a back seat!
Just so you realise that I'm not suffering at all, I've given you three photos from our camping trip in late September, and here are five things I'm really grateful for at the moment:

  • Being at home almost every morning, with Ben and the boys as they get ready and leave for school and work.
  • The moon in the sky when I head outside to let the hens out each morning.
  • Many warm, sunny days to dry my washing on the line.
  • Pupils and students who enjoy sharing the learning experience with me.
  • Chillis, peppers, grapes and a few tomatoes from the garden.

Teaching is so satisfying isn't it? I loved teaching adults and got a real sense of job satisfaction from it. Glad you are still enjoying some warm sunshine - it's not drying weather here these days even when the sun shines.

That's a simple and modest list of 5 things, Floss!

Glad you are enjoying October, even though it's a busy one.

I'm glad you have lots of work. I'm hoping my friend's idea of an Association will take off. Nous verrons!

I love the photo of the Autumn crocuses.
