This week has been spent recouping and looking forward.
Despite worst fears I used my day off to get the decorations sorted and the tree up.
The tree was decorated overnight.
Needless to say Seren decided the fairies did it.
It seems, according to Seren, the fairies also installed video cameras so they could check on the children for good behaviour.
I wasn't disagreeing.
Although it makes me wonder about what goes on in school...
At work things are beginning to offer optimism.
I have spent this year in reactive mode, firefighting.
And I've hated not being allowed the luxury of planning. My comfort.
But now, now things are in place,
And great plans are forming.
For now, performance reviews completed, the line has been drawn under 2014.
So the focus is solely on home.
Presents are wrapped, decorations are up.
We are ready for Christmas.
Sunday night I will pack our bags.
We are escaping for a few days.
In search of Elves.
I have been looking forward to this and now, now I can almost touch it!
