Just a thought….

Dreaming

Can I just say how much I am looking forward to the end of term? We’ve hit that ready-to-stop state.  I’m yearning  to dance to the beat of my own drum.

I want to come down in the morning in pyjamas and stoke the fire. Turn on the Christmas lights. Drink my morning coffee in one uninterrupted sitting. Slowly. Throw a coat over my pjs, pull on wellies and head outside to let the hens out, then scurry back for a bowl of porridge with the rest of the family. Drawing intricate patterns on the top of it with golden syrup. All this, without looking at a clock once. Not once.

It would be bliss. It will be bliss. Just one more week to go.

This week has been undeniably busy. Packing it all in, so that everything will be in place to relax.

I started the week by finally running my first maths tutoring session. It went well. We went to see “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” at the cinema, as a family. We put up Christmas decorations. I ticked off a few gifts that I needed to order. I nudged ahead with my work, so I can take more time off when the children break up from school next week.There were after school events to tick off. Strangely none of them festive related.

We’ve played Christmas music to the point where I think we might need to expand our collection.

I baked festive treats, that disappeared too quickly.

In between the usual picking up, dropping off, organizing and working, I have been making, which of course I cannot show yet. Instead I did finish my snow hare, which is now sitting in among our snow scene.  (Note to self: Need to finish off snow scene)

Sigh.

So, yes as I try to cram everything I can in to this coming week, I am dreaming too. Of a more relaxed time ahead, where clocks do not tick quite so loudly.
