I am thinking...I’m going to shuffle about my to-do list for the next couple of days. ;) Enjoy a bit time off with a couple of household chores peppered in.
I am thankful for... the fact that my sinusitis seems to be on the way out… and that I did pass my exam and am now hold my Diploma in Sports Therapy!
From the kitchen...the smell of re-heated (and devoured) haggis is still lingering, and I can hear the dishwasher doing its work. :)
I am wearing... jogging bottoms and a Wolves t-shirt. Just ready for the gym, whenever I plan on going (most likely some time between 6 and 9 ;) )
I am remembering...last week Tuesday & Wednesday I was all in tatters, my nerves all over the place and my head empty of anything I learned about Anatomy/Physiology and Therapy treatments! Is that really just one week ago???
I am creating...nothing yet. But I have plans to finally go back to my study and do some scrapping/card making this week. Oh … and I finished DH’s Miami Dolphins quilt. ;)
I am going...to my first ever hen night (well.. the dinner part of it) tomorrow … what am I going to give the bride-to-be? And what card am I going to make?
I am currently reading...James Rollins’ “The last Oracle” and am nearly finished and ready for the next book! :)
I am hoping...to find my Mojo in time for making a Hen Night card for Fi and to get some scrapping done!!!
I am hearing...several “pick me up” songs right now (not necessarily lyrics wise, but peppy-sound-wise): “Just say yes” – Snow Patrol, “Meet me Halfway” & “I got a feeling” – The Black Eyed Peas and “Bad Boys” – Alexandra Burke.
Around the house...still a lot of stuff around, Wolves kit is back and we’re going to look into the NFL items collection for the Super Bowl party on the 7th.
One of my favorite things… the lap trays AP got us for Christmas – quite handy for my laptop and dinner in the living rooms.
1. Wouldn't it be easy to just ignore the ironing all day?
2. Wolves are back - better than ever!
3. I love the taste of maple walnut ice cream.
4. Looks like a bomb exploded in the living room.
5. The first thing we're going to do is have a cuppa and make a plan.
6. Constant drip, drip, drip; But Sunshine today.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to going to the gym, tomorrow my plans include Fi’s Hen Night (dinner only) and Sunday, I want to have a sunny training day!

Sinusitis is at the stage of “Every fibre of the body hurts”. Hope that means it quickly on its way out. Staying at home today, but am up and about and am trying to get stuff done …
Portuguese Pork - simmering in the slow cooker
the washing up – done
Wolves D tops – 1/2 washed, other 1/2 in machine now
DH’s work lunches - partly prepared
I’m going to have a very late lunch and a cuppa now… ;)

fresh through the door!! :)
Currently thinking about a 2nd cuppa … been up until 4am this morning, watching the New Orleans Saints beat the Minnesota Vikings in overtime. :o Either team would have been fine with me really, but I am kinda glad the Saints made it (never been to the Superbowl and after Hurricane Katrina etc … well). :)
Superbowl XLIV will be played at Dolphins Stadium in Miami … and the finalists are:
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS v NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
And we’re happy that it’s not the New York Jets … DH cannae stand them! ;)

So does hubby … and of course … them doing a cover on Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” is always a clincher … and the cover was GOOD!! ;)
I’m talking about GLEE … anyone else liking/loving it??
And the cover of “Take a bow” … another good one!! :)
Ok… catching up with today’s episode now… ;)

just currently studying … and being back at work doesn’t give me that much time to do that, so it’s highest priority.
Once the Exam is over (and I hopefully GET my diploma … although my nerves are kicking in already!) I’ll be catching up with taking photos and blogging and crafting!!
So … don’t abandon me just yet – I should be back next week this time. :)

Despite all the rivalries between the Scottish Teams we’ve banded together and put through a lot of PR to help out finding referees/team judges for American Football Teams in Scotland. We currently have 1.5 crews (A crew is a minimum of 5 refs right now I *think* – might be 4). So that’s saying a lot! AND our refs are covering North of England games, too – in return we have a couple of English Refs coming up to our games, so no hard feelings there.
Anyway… we’ve done a lot, been in papers, online papers, on the radio and even on STV!! :)
The photo used in the printed media is mine… :) And I am proud of it! It’s at BritBowl (the national finals) at Keepmoat Stadium (Doncaster) of the Division 1 final between the East Kilbride Pirates and the London Cobras.
“Scots seek new Gridiron referees” (BBC Sport online)
STV news at Six (North Edition) – (see from 22:50)

yeah… really!!! :) Mainly physiology with a bit anatomy sprinkled in. Managed 4 hours, after I woke with a light migraine and spent time until 2pm to “diffuse” the headache (and it worked!).
Not sure the stuff is stuck in my brain yet (Physiology is so much harder to understand than anatomy! :o ) but repetition will help … and I am planning on studying 6 hours tomorrow and Monday.
Currently taking a bit of PC/TV time and then am hoping that I will get some scrapping done … really want to finish the JYC this time so I can start a totally new one in December. :)
Oh … I nearly managed to finish DH’s last present … my time was cut short before Xmas because of the constant driving around of the brown chair … :o
So … he got it as a Hogmanay present … my only quilt in 2009… And as you can see, I HATE binding … think I’ll just get some of the tacky tape stuff to finish it off… ;)
DH is a Miami Dolphins fan, and I bought the fabric about 2 years ago. The backing is nice fleecy fabric.
And yes … I know there’s an error in it … HUH! Not too happy with that … but … ah well…
