Today I wasn’t in school, I was on a course learning all about how to make Key Stage 2 Grammar exciting. One of the best things about being on a course (aside from the lie in, and learning new things) is that I get to be at home much earlier than I usually would on a Monday.
Wondering what to do with myself, I’ve put on some laundry, emptied the dishwasher, done the little bit of school work I had to do and curled up in front of the fire with a coffee.
Now please don’t judge me but I might have just written my Christmas list. Yes, I’m 30 years old and still write a Christmas list! Although now, rather than being posted to Father Christmas, it gets passed along to my husband/parents/in-laws.
There are few things I love more at this time of year than sitting down and making my wishlist, it really gets me in the festive mood. Not that I need much excuse for that. This weekend I watched The Father Christmas, The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Grinch to take my mind off being full of cold and generally feeling sorry for myself. I’m also working my way through the sugar-laden seasonal drinks menus at Costa and Starbucks.
I make no apologies for my obsession with the C word. I’m already debating whether it’s acceptable for me to stick my Christmas album on in my car (after all, it is December next week!)
What do you do get in the festive mood? Or do you prefer the C word to be avoided until firmly into advent?
