I've kept them really simple - just chose a fancy font and am adding glitter to make them festive. I start off enthusiastic and by number 18 I'm in a very 'Bah Humbug' kind of 'next year someone else can do this' mood! Which is why I've streamlined them this year! I seem to have acquired rather a lot of buff luggage labels and this has been a good project to use a few of them up. I do like the idea of using labels on layouts and had no idea you could get them in so many shapes and sizes ;-)
We had only two little trick or treaters this year which was very disappointing, and has left me with two bowls of sweets which I suppose I will have to eat myself. I am currently eating my way through a bag of candy shrimps and bananas. I don't even really like them, why am I eating them????
Trying desperately hard to think of a story for Sian's storytelling Sunday but am lacking inspiration ... still, I have a few days to go to come up with something. I have 53 years of memories, surely there must be something worth sharing!
Tomorrow will be a very different day at school. School closes at 1.20 and all staff have been invited to the home of the Chair of Governors for a celebration afternoon. Our exam results were simply outstanding this year, we are officially the 4th highest girls' school in the whole of the UK, and this is a thank you from the Board of Governors for all the hard work in getting such good results. By all accounts, it is a huge house. It is definitely a listed historic building and the word 'mansion' has been mentioned. I can hardly wait! Sure beats sitting at a desk all afternoon. If there are any photo opportunities I will be sure to share them!
