Last day of primary school

Today was the last day of primary school for my twins. As of next year they will be heading off to high school embarking on the next phase of their lives.

The future is exciting and filled with so many possibilities. All I could think of was how it had felt waking them into the school on their first day of prep. How excited they had been and how nervous, it’s like we have come full circle in 6 weeks I will be waking them into high school. How quickly the time has passed.

To signify the end of the year, the school hosted an all school assembly and all the Grade 6 children got to stand up the front and perform their grade 6 graduation song which this year was Justice Crew’s Que Sera.

There were many tears shed, mainly by the mums.

Grade 6 ended with a bang at the after party where the kids got to sing and dance and take lots of selfies.

Sweet Christmas Surprise

I received a Christmas card today from my dear fiend and fellow blogger, Elaine from foodbod. It was such a lovely surprise ,so unexpected and just so lovely and sweet just like Elaine herself.

I feel so privileged to have made such wonderful friends on WordPress, everyone has been so welcoming, so encouraging, it’s like we are all united in this little world of ours.

With Christmas only 8 sleeps away I want to take this moment to acknowledge all the things that I am so grateful for, my children, my family, my husband, my pets, my friends, my colleagues and every single person that I have had the honour of meeting on WordPress. Thank you all for making my life so wonderful, I truly am a very lucky woman to have you all in my life.

Game of Thrones

I have started watching the Game of Thrones series and once you get past the horrific violence and the graphic sex, the story line is quite good.

There is friendship and honor, kings and knights, treason, incest and I’m only five episodes into the first season.

I wish I had read the books, books are always better than movies.

11 Sleeps till Christmas

Only 11 more sleeps till Christmas!! This may not have been the best time for me to catch a cold, not with so much to do before Christmas Day!! I keep thinking that once my energy levels return I will be able to power through everything and have it all done in time for the big day. Optimistic much?? Yep I think so!!

I’m feeling a lot better so that is a start, and all my extra curriculum activities are finishing up this week which means more free time to bake and clean and wrap presents and prepare the deck and the house. Despite the cold I am really looking forward to Christmas this year and although it won’t be the same with out my nephew who is overseas visiting family, it will still be super awesome, it always is.
