Finally! The End of Term!

Boy, it’s been a looooong term! It feels like from September to now lasted around 4 years, not 4 months!

But then that is a pretty common misconception amongst us teachers. We keep on going, despite being shattered, and the end of the Christmas term is always so joy filled for our little ones, we want to keep going, be part of their happiness!

So it is always so wonderful, and much appreciated, when we are gifted something at the end of the term. It is never an expectation. In fact, a card would suffice. But then, it makes us feel special too!

I came home with rather a haul from both pupils and family and colleagues!

The top left was a gift from my Secret Santa.. a notebook for me to write poems into!

 

 

Tired as I was, it was not important as I had a Christmas party to attend with my colleagues! Yes, the staff Christmas party! Sometimes the stuff of nightmares, but if I’m honest, I have amazing colleagues, and we all have such fun!

Then today I added an extra layer of exhaustion by visiting Bluewater Shopping Centre, and going ice skating with the kids, eating a rather large lunch, and hare-ing around finishing the Christmas shopping, whilst trying to hide things from the kids! But Hubby Dearest and I had it all covered!

To top it off, I finished as much of the wrapping as I could.

It’s just a good house clean, before the Big Fat Fella in Red arrives, and the last bits of food shopping to do tomorrow! I fear my second wind will only last another day, then I’ll end up ill, like the rest of the household, but I am holding out!!!

Til tomorrow Peeps!
