Sunday Night

It's Sunday evening. Sport Boy has returned home safe and sound after a couple of days in Melbourne hanging out with friends and Jordy. After days of unseasonal, though not unexpected, cold wet weather it's been a lovely day, soured only by the headache I've been trying to keep at arm's length all afternoon. It probably started not long after I watched Tottenham inexplicably lose to Crystal Palace! What's the good of beating Chelsea if we turn around and lose to Palace I hear you ask? Indeed!

I've been ticking a few things off my To Do list this arvo: 

1. Select final elective for semester 1, - "Introduction to University Study". That should be handy.
2. Email the agent about the broken railing on the balcony.
3. Email St Nick (and the footy club) re. our house for sale in Busselton.
4. Revise a few listings of things I've got for sale on ebay. (sold a few cards and a badge today).
5. Print some pictures of new drivers at work for the noticeboard, (community building)

It wasn't on my list but I also completed my latest picture last night. Perhaps it is part of the reason the list has been neglected...

Just got to update my roster then it's off to bed cause I'm on early starts again this week.

I always enjoy that feeling of productiveness that comes with crossing items off my to do list, and some of these have been transferred from previous lists more than once!

Happy New Year etc etc
Last year I set an aim to post to my blog on a regular though not frequent basis. A quick examination shows that I haven't blogged here since April 2014! 
I'm not making any promises, especially ones I can't keep, but I would like to be a regular blogger again in 2015, so here goes.
It will be a year of significant change for me as I have enrolled at university and start a four year course in March which hopefully will see me qualify as a primary school teacher, just in time to retire! Maybe not. Hopefully I can teach for up to 10 years and get some decent mileage out of my belated study. I really have no idea what to expect from uni. How will I handle the workload? writing assignments? Doing pracs? Drinking large amounts of beer? and the myriad other reputed components of student life? We will see.
