Well, here we are.  The last day of the term, a third of the way through the school year.  One more day of not an awful lot really, finishing off with Carols by Candlelight this afternoon.

And the coldy virus thing is receding.  I went to bed early and woke just before midnight with a very sort throat.  Two pills and two glasses of water later I went to sleep to wake full of beans this morning.  Excellent, that's great timing, fingers crossed it lasts.

I can't say that the house is tidy because it isn't, but it's OK for the cleaner to work her usual magic.  Oh, it will be nice to come home to a clean home this evening.

And now I'd better go and have my bath and get ready.  No planning to follow, no resources to find or make.  Bliss!  What are the children doing, do I hear you ask?  Well - how about 'structured play'?  Or 'visual literacy'/classic traditional tales (finishing off watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - or is it 'dwarves'?)?  Or RE (Advent calendar/Carols by Candlelight)?  Or creativity (paper, pencils, scissors, glue and a lot of imagination)?

And in eight hours' time . . .


  1. Sounds like a good day to be an infant!!!!

  2. Keeping everything crossed that your cold is disappearing rapidly just in time for the festivities next week so you can enjoy a 'proper' Christmas this year!!

    Happy Holyday! A xx

  3. It was a good day, the children were lovely and I ended up very weary but OK. I've had a snooze but am going to bed very soon!
