Week 21 - One daily Positive, Project366 and SnapHappyBritMums

I've been rather neglecting my blog recently, I have a ton of lovely comments I want to respond to and 2 weeks worth of links I need to visit, read and comment on also. I've 2 months of travel to look forward to in July and August to visit family and friends and I've already packed my case for South Africa despite not flying till July 2nd.

I think we've accepted the relentless heat, it's been our only topic of conversation this week 'I can't it's too hot' Although we did manage to spend Friday morning on the beach with Bob, with thanks to shower facilities, shade and plenty to drink.

Peter and I have been doing much more in the evenings now as we're hurtling towards Ramadan and the end of the school year, things haven't slowed down with work, I've just caught up and over taken. I'm looking forward to my first full year of teaching after a break of 5 years in September, I feel I've got back into the swing of things now. You can see this by the fact I've managed a full week of photo prompts without a picture of the cat or dog or taking a snap of my dinner to fill the gap at the last minute.

On the blog this week:
#MySundayPhoto  Getting ready for Ramadan
#AnimalTales Bob is feeling much better now

  1. Glad to hear you're getting on top of your work now. I would have been very stressed if a child had thrown up on me! Staying on top of blog comments is hard work! I hate it if I don't respond to comments on my own blog and I always like to visit my favourite blogs regularly, but sometimes life gets too busy!

  3. It's good news that you feel so positive about your life now, and that you've settled at your teaching job. Good luck with writing all those end of year reports.

  4. Nice to read you are in a happier place now with things settling down.
    I would imagine you need a lot of lightweight clothes as in that heat I would be changing every few hours.
    Packed all ready, good grief woman......

  6. sounds like you are enjoying life better now, which is lovely to read. I really do not know how you manage a real life in that heat - I can cope for a holiday but i know i would struggle every day doing my every day jobs. I love the saying on that mug! x
