And no I'm not in a panic. Taking my own advice - after all its only one day!! Thanks for all the comments on my last Pause post :)
Its been a busy week - so many things crammed into the final week of term - christmas dinners, brass engagements galore and rather a lot of late nights. Well its taken it toll on the (currently) shortest member of the household :( Little son dozed off whilst watching the end of the brass concert last night and when he woke it was obvious that the lurgy had struck. Hence one small boy spending today on the sofa, snuggled under blankets with a sock monkey for company!!
Looks like he might miss the last day of term - something he's not happy about but I don't think he'd last the day without curling up asleep in a corner somewhere.
I've said before that MrVV mostly works from home and today that was handy. I was able to leave him in charge of the patient and head off out. I was keen to watch my little nephew in his school nativity play. It was for the whole key stage - about 75 children and everyone has a part however small. O was a star and in my opinion the cutest one ever (that's him under the mistletoe);
I've managed to add to my christmas decoration collection this week too - I was passing my favourite charity shop the other day when I noticed in the window something I've been looking for - bottle brush christmas trees - 2 of - for just 20p each!!
Hopefully by the end of the weekend, they won't feel so lonely as the rest of the decorations and the tree will be up. After this morning I am feeling festive :) Plus the postie has been this week with a Secret Santa parcel for me - I had a poke and prod and then just opened the outer layers;
See you on Sunday for a final Pause in Advent.
