A suitably theatrical title to describe how the Nativity play turned out . Midway through the week the rest of the staff and I were tearing our hair out in despair as, after two weeks of practice, the little darlings still weren’t getting it! However, on Friday, in front of the parents, they finally pulled it out of the bag and put on a perfect performance!! It was superb and the parents were enthralled . So now we can enjoy the last weeks and do lots of Christmassy things, lovely!
Monday was Dave’s birthday and the Friday before that my mum’s so quite busy on the pressie front. I think I have most of the Christmas present shopping done, just a couple of gift vouchers to buy for tricky teenagers! No decorations up at home yet….as always I’ll probably leave it until school breaks up to start our christmas which will be spent at home this year. We had toyed with the idea of spending Christmas down in Dorset again with the grandchildren but as it would mean putting the doggies in kennels (which just felt so awful last year) we decided against it. So we’re looking forward to a lovely cosy day at home with our two babies .
Last night we went to a belated wedding reception (the happy couple got married in October). The groom is a prison warden so the party was held at the prison! A very high security prison at that! Quite weird, drinking and dancing just metres away from some of the most dangerous men in the UK! A long lie in is now being followed by a lazy afternoon watching one of my favourite films ‘The History Boys‘, – wonderful and very, very British!
