Last week this time I was looking out of the window wondering about school and whether it would be on. It was and it lasted until eleven thirty, if you recall, and then it was a second half term for the rest of the week.
Looking out now, it's bitterly cold but the freezing fog of earlier seems to have cleared leaving a fairy-tale, sparkly work under the street lights. No way am I even going to think about scraping my car this morning. It would take for ever!
But school is definitely ON! And we're well into the Christmas festivities. The paper chains are made, the children will be meeting Mike and his Christmas tree today, there's a rehearsal scheduled, hand and feet reindeer are planned, followed by kneeling angels . . .
It's all go!!
And my new washing machine is super-dooper!
