Christmas Holidays

The long awaited Christmas holidays are finally here. I have been limping* towards them with a grim determination that, in the last couple of days, has invovled violent and painful coughing. But at least I wasn’t generating cover for anyone else.

Almost as soon as I walked through the door at the end of the day today the more traditional aspects of the cold started, those which mean you go through boxes of tissues and gross everyone out. Brilliant. Oh well, I’ll be able to help Rudolph find the way. Having said that, when it started earlier in the week I felt a lot worse, so it could be er… worse. As they say.

Anyway, must do some Christmas shopping tomorrow – I like to leave it until it really is hell in the shops. Although actually I have already done quite a lot of it, I’m just being a drama queen.

*not literally of course – I didn’t pull any muscles whilst coughing unlike Jack the lass, not that she did it through coughing or anything, just saying you know, that it can be silly things but in my case I am not literally limping or anything. Am I rambling?

One week until holidays – hurrah

There is one week to go until the end of term. I am very happy about that, but secretly a bit peeved because on the last day of term, when we finish early, I miss two free lessons. This means I am not gaining as much as I could be, if for example it was today, when I would have missed a completely loopy class and another class that I actually think are quite sweet – and it isn’t often you’ll hear me say that!

Anyway, one week to go, and that’s got to be a good thing.

I am ready to put Christmas decorations up now. Not right now though, cos I have to cook and then go and sing some carols and tell people I don’t like mince pies.
