Tree is 97% done. Life kept getting in the way. Cooking, washing etc
Lastly, strings of fancy sliver and purple garlandy beads go on - I've not finished it yet, but couldn't resist giving you all a sneaky peak!
It is a lovely tree, the shape is perfect!
The bushy branches are challenging to get baubles and bling 'just so'.
Here are a few shots of my yesteryear trees!
So things you may now know about me.
I'm a bit OCD with my tree! I don't like change. And I've approximately £10000 of Christmas decorations!!!
Today was the Fair and I've been so busy I forgot to take photos of the salt dough gingerbread men. There are a few spare so I might catch them tomorrow. The fair started at 3.25pm
The junior bell goes at 3.20pm
A child in my class sicked up big style all over the carpet at 3.17pm. This was not pleasant.
I'm now over tired , fretting for tomorrow.
Full dress rehearsal in the morning for the whole school, first performance 2pm then Night Owls then the final performance at 6pm.
Like I said at the beginning
Not looking forward to tomorrow. If the kids that have been away don't turn up then I'm IN THE SODDING NATIVITY MYSELF!!!
I will need to wear a tea towel on my head ( shepherd ), put on a dicky bow tie ( inn keeper ) , change into all black outfit ( narrator numbers 8 and 20 )
And somehow be at the front mouthing words and gurning at the children!!
At least I don't think this will happen...
A text from the teacher I've worked closely with putting on this shebang..
"Yup - that's us staying at school! I shall pop to Spar for choccy, I think! We'll need it.
Still, the stories from KS1 nativity are cheering me up. It can't possibly be worse than theirs. Friday they had willy - out fiddling and today a full on fight. :-)"
I'll let you know how we get on! Though I can quite categorically state I will not get my willy out and fiddle with it. Can't promise about the fight....
Lots of love from
