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


So I’m sat here feeling drained exhausted and……… a bit like last night really except last night I could move my left shoulder, and didn’t have grazes and bruises forming on certain parts of my anatomy. And to think the day started so well .

Yes, I battled CBA Syndrome and was out running by quarter six, quite a good run despite not having the comfiest of running shoes – finding a replacement for my Nike Free Runners is not going to be easy- not a niggle to be felt in my knee and 2.2 miles done in 18 minutes -fab. Back in plenty of time for a shower and change before heading to work on Boris (my bike) I got there in near record time despite the wind trying to slow me down. Work went well, year 2 dance was great – we’re doing a stomp this half-term and they loved it. All was going great until we went swimming.

First we had the ‘how to squash 60 kids on one bus’ (the other forgot to come!) without having any H & S issues – good job 6 were off ill. Then we had ‘how to get through Wakefield in less than 5 minutes’  – things weren’t going well!! We arrived at the new all singing all dancing leisure centre with only 15 minutes of our lesson left, so it was ‘changed, in – out, changed’. Quickest swim ever – still the afternoon flew by. Bring on the weekend.

Alas the weekend hasn’t got off to the best of starts – with most of Wakefield getting gridlocked due to a serious road accident I was quite relieved to be on the bike knowing that when the queues started I could cycle by – well that was the plan. Shame some moron knocked me off before I got a chance to do that – nice that they thought to drive off and leave me there as well. Thankfully someone else came to my rescue and got Boris and I home in one piece – see there are nice people out there.  So a bit of TLC and Boris and I will be in full working order in no time at all and thank god for my cycling helmet – yes it makes me look a right wally but boy did it do its job today!!


Less ouch tomorrow

Bring it on!
