Good morning, everyone. I can't believe we're five days into December already. I've caught up with my Advent candle after not being able to start it until Monday; it's a slow melting candle so you get a good flame time each day and it's sitting beside me on the table, casting light.
Thinking of candles, here's my Advent offering for today - not my photos but I like the 'atmosphere'.
Watching yesterday's dress rehearsal yesterday morning was enjoyable. It's the Juniors' chance to see the Infant show and I was able to exchange waves/smiles with some of my students as well as enjoying the music, dancing and general cuteness. It's the first proper performance this morning and I shall be attending that wearing my School Governor hat.
After that I have a parcel to post for Beth and then I need to get my Christmas gift bags made for my students as tomorrow is the last time this year for a couple of them. It's nothing much, just little bits and bobs, mostly edible, with a card, but they like it and so do I.
I have a bit of planning to get done. Not much but it needs to be done. After that I will be sorting out home stuff - the usual washing and ironing and some general clearing. Quite a busy day but nothing too difficult!
A bit of a disappointment and a blow to another Christmas tradition. Alex is staying at uni to complete some course work and Beth cannot make this weekend after all. So I will be decorating the old Christmas Tree by myself this year. So it will be carols, a bit of bubbly and when all is looking lovely, a Christmas DVD by myself. It can't be helped, nothing lasts for ever and it's nothing whatsoever in the wider scheme of things but I can't help feeling a pang of sadness.
Well, the candle is still burning gentle and it's nowhere near '5' yet but I have things to get on with so I will say 'see you tomorrow' and finish waffling on now. Have a great day and stay warm and dry.
