Choose life. Life is wonderful.

 People with clear, written goals, accomplish far more in a shorter period of time than people without them could ever imagine.

My goals have been a bit hazy lately. I am being made redundant from my teaching job at the end of the year. There was a chance of gaining a position in a new school opening on the same site, but that was not to be. So it looks as though retirement is going to be my option.

At this stage I will probably have to sell my house and live somewhere smaller in order to create an income stream. This is not a bad thing. My house is quite large and devoted to storage of mine and my children's 'stuff'. I live in it on my own and while I am working have some difficulty keeping up with the garden, which I do love but runs rampant.

The first thing I must do is sort out my back room. It is a half finished area which has collected a lot of stuff in boxes - mainly craft things and school stuff.

I plan to give myself 2 weeks to get it tidy. I'll divide it into 14 sections.

I must write that down.

P:-) and I were shopping last week at Westfield Warrawong and P:-) pointed out the attractive skylight we were sitting under while we sipped coffee.

.P:-) lives near Lake Illawarra and Wednesday was such a lovely spring afternoon we decided to bike ride around the foreshore.

The school holidays start in two more weeks so I am hoping that the weather stays beautiful. P:-) and I plan to spend some time up at Davistown. P:-)'s family have an old decrepit holiday house up on the foreshore of Brisbane Waters.P:-) and I camp in the backyard. Sometimes we take the caravan and sometimes we take the boat and tent it. I'm not sure exactly what our plans are yet but I am really looking forward to it.
