I have signed up to Writing 101 and am following (badly) some of the writing prompts. I have to admit this is not as important to me to complete every day’s tasks (Naughty i know, Slap my hand). I’m currently in the process of getting a new teaching position and working with a new, very challenging class which is taking up more of my time.
This list, however, called to me to be completed. It is inspired from a website called Things we like.
So here is my list of thing i like:
Standing in the shower with the water pouring over my face.
Cuddling up, warm in bed.
Reading a book you can’t put down.
New pens, Crafting materials and wash tapes.
Having the time to browse in a bookshop.
Getting on a plane to go somewhere new.
Wearing new clothes for the first time.
Pinning colourful pictures on pinterest.
Pictures of my nephews.
Eating a dinner i’ve just cooked.
I’m saving the things i’ve learnt list for an education post on a coming wednesday.
Even after an amazing day doing something new and exciting i’ll have forgotten the next day the name of each place we went to and possibly exactly what we did there. Now add that to a travel trip when each day you do something new and different and i’m screwed. Continue reading “Why Journal?”→
Ashley bear was a lovely present brought back from a residential trip my class and Teaching Aid (TA) went one and i was left behind. I decided that he should go travelling with me and have tried to take pictures with him in as many places as i could in Barnaby bear style. Below is a little picture diary of his (and my) travels.

On the Australia Zoo bus
On the Whitsundays boat
At the airport in Kuala Lumper

The thing i miss most when travelling is that neat line of books upon a shelf, books i am waiting to read, ones i love and my current reading. I seem to be a book hoarder. I can find a pile of books anywhere i go. Recently i have moved from a hostel back into a shared house. Up until now my to be read (TBR) pile has been getting in the way, taking up space on top of the chest of drawers in our room.
Flicking through a magazine at work i noticed super cheap, small book cases we can use as bedside tables from Warehouse. I headed over after work and got us two.
Now my books (and my morning/evening cuppa) have a home.

As a traveller of the world i find inspiration everywhere, being crafty, i love to keep this inspiration in my travel journal. I am a nightmare for leaflets, stickers …… oh i love stickers…… labels, packets anything i can cut up and stick down with glue or my very pretty wash tape. My travelling partner in crime shakes his in despair some days when i get excited about buying stickers from a location we have been to.
