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 pajamas 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)


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.

    I know what you mean, I am getting really tired and can’t wait for a break. Love the frost, makes everything look really pretty X #wotw

      Doesn’t the frost look pretty? Even a leaf, passed its best, looks like a work of art. Nearly there. End of term is on its way.

    I look back and see that I used to be so busy like you are now, sadly my lot flew the nest many years ago and now have their own families.
    I have all the time in the world now to do exactly what I want to do but I’d still go back to the days when the children were all here in a flash if I could.
    Love the little hare.

      Part of me totally understands what you mean. I was talking to one little chap in the playground about his nativity play and what he was going to wear. I miss mine being in the plays, but I also love what they are up to now. I have no school festive events to go to this year, which is a first, so already I can see it slipping away. Maybe one day I will miss the morning routine and the driving them here, there and everywhere. Organizing supplies and gear for events I’m not attending. We’ll see.

    Oh, I am so with you on being ready for the break, and you’ve described it so perfectly and blissfully! Sounds like you’ve had a busy one, you’ll definitely be earning those slower mornings and fun days – they are coming, just one more week x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

      Dreaming about time beyond the end of term, gives me that extra boost to get much more done. I have an objective!

    Ahh! I am looking forward to the end of term too….
    It’s been so dark on a morning, it makes it so hard to get out of bed….

      I’m OK wih the dark mornings, but I am a morning person. The dark evenings are another thing though. Hate to wish time away, but roll on Friday!

    I’m with you too on looking forward to the end of term and not having to keep looking at the clock in the morning and having a more leisurely start to the day. Love that snow hare you made 🙂 #WotW

    I love the idea of popping out to sort the hens out and going back into the warm for porridge! And believe me, I’m sooo ready to slow down too! #wotw

    • Wednesday 14 December, 2016 at 9:40 pm

      Just hope no one spots me. Yes, there comes a point when we need the slow down. Not long.
