Christmas Countdown Continues……………

Where did you get that hat.........

Where did you get that hat………

Wahoo – two days left, not that I’m counting or anything! The carol concerts over, cards and calendars are made. There’s the class party tomorrow and then we’re all but done. Just the staff ‘christmas hat competition’ to do on Friday and the school festivities are over. The christmas hat competition is a new addition to the festivities -a £1 to enter and winner takes all competition. True to form I’ve got a bit carried away -don’t get me wrong it didn’t take long to make but it weighs that much that I’ll need a neck brace to wear it. Thankfully the original idea of us doing a fashion parade in them has been knocked on the head -I’ve all on sitting with it on never mind strutting up and down the hall!

I’ve been quite busy since getting home from work, the hat was made in no time at all, I’ve ordered some stuff from Argos ready for collection – I placed one order, Argos have sent me six, yes SIX collection numbers. Can’t wait to collect it tomorrow. I’ve also managed to squeeze in a sneaky run, just over 2 miles in the pouring rain with no huffing and puffing and only a little knee niggle. For the 20th time (slight exaggeration) the comebacks on!!


The hats made

Fun in Argos in the morning

Bring it on

The Countdown To….. Well quite a few things really!!!

BARLA-YouthJuniorFinalsSo just four more sleeps and Jack and his rugby team mates will be heading to the Yorkshire cup finals and the scariest thing about it is it doesn’t seem two minutes since we counting the sleeps last year and now here we are again. Just where has that year gone, it seems to have passed by in a very busy blur. What with running ,cycling, walking,work, my camera and rugby I haven’t really had chance to sit back and reflect on any of it. Maybe after this weekend I’ll get my chance. But for now its all about Sunday and at the moment my house is like changing room, sub suits, kits, kitbags and matchday stuff seem to be hanging in every room. Come Saturday it will all be packed up ready for the big day and by then there will be only one sleep left -gulp!!!

In the meantime there is plenty at work to keep me busy – the christmas countdown is well and truly on, glitter everywhere – its fab!!  ‘Big Bad Ben’ is still stomping round rehearsals and his song is still stomping round my head. Every production we do, Christmas, Easter or otherwise, always has one of those songs that messes with your mind – always on re -play in your brain – this years is no different, but when you’re laid awake at 2 in the morning  ‘I’m Big Bad Ben or so they say, when  people see you they run away’  is not much of a lullaby. Still at least good old reliable ‘Away in a Manger’ is there as a back up even if you need tissues at the ready……

So much happening

The countdown is on

Bring it on (slowly)
