Thank God, the end is in sight....this week will be Kit's last week, he's having next week off, because the combination of mixed up timetables and unfamiliar teachers is driving him (and me) round the twist. He's finished all his assessment for the year, so now we wait with bated breath for the dreaded report cards to be issued. Sebi will do this week and next, only becuase I have a mammoth house clean ahead of me to get things ready for Christmas, and I'll get a grand total of nothing achieved if second son is on the premises. I still have a mass of Christmas shopping to do, although at least the boys are finished.....Kit's getting a couch for his bedroom, a new phone (the old one is still MIA on a council bus somewhere) and a few other bits...new bedding, a new desk and a couple of other things he's been eyeing off over the year. Sebi gets a lightbox for his drawing, plus new bedding and various pokemon/bakkugan related things. Himself is getting a surprise which I'm not at liberty to divulge in case he reads this. For myself, I'd settle for peace on earth and a new portrait lens (are you listening Santa??). Lollipopping finishes with the end of school....I have sorted out my Elf costume to wear on the last week, although I did switch from green to red socks after Marcus informed me I looked more like the Incredible Hulk than Missus Christmas (!!!) I'll still be working the early shift at the donut shop in between everything else, but it's actually easier when the kids are at home, since I generally finish work and get home before their lazy butts make it out of bed. Kit's quilt is nearing completion, I just need to add the wadding and the back panel. I then have a dozen pillowcases to make for various neices and nephews, time allowing. I'm planning a major budget buster at Fishpond, 'cos all my best fave books seem to live there, and I plan on getting some serious couch time over Christmas accompanied by my fave rave reads and a glass of red. Luscious!! This weekend we are off to Twin Waters for the Metroll Christmas bash, we're having two nights in a King Suite, where I will be submerging myself in the spa on Friday evening and reluctantly towelling off on Sunday morning, whilst FF does the outdoor thing with the boys. Decadence on a budget....gotta love it!!
