Time flies when you're having fun (or running around like a scalded cat!). Work had been very hectic so it was nice to have a Christmas day on our own, the first in ten years! and then see everyone on Boxing day instead. But now its back to school and the daily madness of school marking,planning,reporting and then organising Eleanor! Her Christmas present has been a big hit and she is already adding to the furniture with her pocket money. I did wonder if I was doing the right thing as it took me hours to paint in secret but she loves it.
