I may be a crafty type and an arts lover but gee, I’m also a big footy fan and today is the AFL Grand Final! As a Hawks supporter I’ve been lucky enough to see plenty of premierships, but today it’s the rest of the family going through Grand Final anxiety! Thirty seven years since the Tigers last premiership – my man was there as a 14 year old! – and the first time my boy and girl have seen their team in a Grand Final! They’ve headed down to the Tigers’ home ground to watch on the live screen with thousands of other Tiges supporters. With the house to myself, and before the match hits the screen here, I’ll do a quick ‘Taking Stock’. Thanks Pip for the inspiration!
Watching: lots of footy preview shows!
Reading: Ache by Eliza Henry Jones and footy analyses
Cooking: pasta for dinner, I think
Eating: cheesymite scroll – because it’s yellow and black
Making: an arc-y weaving
Hearing: the washing machine beeping at the end of its cycle
Getting: over a cold
Feeling: butterflies in my tummy
Hoping: for a Tigers win, of course!
Looking: at my pile of ironing
Smelling: the lingering aroma of cheese toasties
Needing: to proof read my boy’s history research project
Wishing: that we weren’t switching to daylight savings this weekend. It’s too early for me!
Noticing: how nice and tidy my garden looks since the huge clean up I gave it yesterday
Enjoying: watching the little charges I work with developing their skills and imaginations
Thinking: it would be nice to have a holiday
Needing: a drink – tea or water will suffice. Feeling a little parched
Wearing: nothing with red or blue! Don’t want to appear to be in any supporting the Crows!
And that’s September! Hope yours has been a good one! GO TIGES!!!
