First of all, thank you, thank you, thank you for all those lovely and kind comments yesterday - I have some good friends on my blog, don't I?
I've replied to most of them in yesterday's comments but I'll answer one here - Margaret, what a splendid idea. Strangely enough, I had an email yesterday from J, saying it was ages since we had got together so how about it. With a suddenly free weekend I suggested that and she agreed (not sure whether it's Saturday or Sunday yet). I was going to do the tree on whichever day she didn't come but after your brainwave, I will ask if she'd like to help! Thank you so much.
That's a very good quote too - I think I will look out for that book!
The Infants' show yesterday was wonderful. The children come alive with an audience of mums and dads, don't they, and I had a great view. Well done, everyone. I must remember to send a note for the newsletter today.
I've sent round messages to 'my' parents (of my students) advising them of when my term finishes and the next one starts. I like tutoring but it will be nice to have more free days for a few weeks - not that they'll be particularly free but you know what I mean!
Today is an almost empty day until the evening so I might get out the tree and set it up with its lights ready (that takes ages as each branch has to be fitted separately). Yes, I have an artificial tree and have done ever since a 'real needed decided to lodge itself in my eye and it took ages (and considerable discomfort) to get it out again! It's getting old not and I keep thinking to replace it but never do. Well, it won't be this year now.
I also have knitting, housework, a titchy bit of planning and some ironing before tuition which is the last one this year for this particular student so I am glad that I got all the gift bags done and dusted yesterday.
And then it is Slimming World group so my fingers are crossed. I have my doubts about tonight's weigh in because the weekend was a bit 'naughty but nice' at times but what will be will be and there's always next week!
Seeing as Christmas trees are on my mind, here's today's Advent offering. Enjoy.
