Things I Know Right Now
It’s been a while since I’ve felt the need to write a completely random Things I Know post but I’m feeling quite the urge to share some of what’s happening to me right now.
I know that it’s the Queen’s birthday long weekend here in NSW and even though we have no plans I’m looking forward to an extra long weekend at home.
I know I have mixed feelings about traveling to Canberra for work next week. I’m looking forward to having some time away from home but I will miss my family terribly and will worry about them the whole time.
Except of course for those times that I’ll be too absorbed calculating just how bloody cold it is to worry about how they are going back home – it’s going to be thermals, coats, scarves and gloves for me!
I know I’m really enjoying taking part in Fat Mum Slim’s June Photo a Day challenge. I am no photographer but I am genuinely enjoying taking the time each day to focus on an idea and creating an image to represent it. If you’re taking part as well please come and follow me on Instagram – myhometruths.
I was in the local paper this week as part of a story about the proposed Every Student Every School policy and how it has left my family and others with students with special needs in limbo in NSW public schools.
I feel mentally and physically exhausted trying to raise awareness of this policy and feel like I’m banging my head against a brick wall most of the time. But receiving encouragement from other parents in the same boat keeps urging me on.
I know I need more sleep and promise myself every day I will go to bed earlier yet never do…
I know I’m really, really looking forward to going away with extended family in a few weeks time – it’s going to be a long overdue holiday!
So that’s what I know this week – sharing my knowledge with Dorothy from Singular Insanity for Things I Know. You should head over to her place and see what everyone else knows this week.
