Well it's here.
The last week of school was very tiring, parties, Christmas Lunch and the trip to the pantomime in Cheltenham. The pantomime was hilarious and went well (for our class) although not so well for the younger class (someone threw up.) I knew there's a reason why I like KS2.
As promised here's our class tree decorated with the felt decorations the children made. We (teacher and me) were very proud of them.
I didn't really enjoy the Christmas shopping this year, I'm not sure why, I usually do. There was a moment in Primark that made me laugh whilst I was buying glitter candles. The (young) assistant said that she'd put the candles in a different bag as I didn't want to get glitter on everything. I laughed and told her I worked in primary school and we LOVE glitter. She gave me the I've got a right one here look.
DS announced that he fancied making a gingerbread house, so we've been busy over the last two days. It was a major feat of civil engineering and is still standing (at the moment) it is also fairly tasty although we're informed we're allowed to eat it yet. Look! there's even a dog kennel.
My birthday has been and gone (another year older eek!) Mr Clicky got me two 400g balls of Apollo Aran to make a cardi that Romain and me saw on the Rowan Stand at Ally Pally.
My friend gave me a lovely book Animal Hats, I'm sure I'll making some out of it.
The Friesian cow is fun
but I think my favourite if the Koala.
I've set the Christmas Table and scattered silver glitter on the black floor tiles in the kitchen ~ sooooo sparkly ~ and it's time for mulled wine I think. Don't forget Santa Tracker from Norad so you can see when you need to be in bed, he's in Yemen as I write.
Well, just one to say......HAPPY CHRISTMAS. Hope you have a super day with your loved ones.
