2 of my classes have finished - exams & Christmas parties done so now I can start focussing on the main event. I still have 2 weeks left of term and 4 hours of Controlled Assessment to invigilate (prime Christmas card writing time!) but not much teaching left.
So I have finally found my Christmas spirit this weekend!
I went late night shopping with the in-laws on Thursday night and managed to crack all my nephews and nieces.
There was face painting:
the obligatory audience with one of Santa's lookalike helpers:and - an unexpected result - we won the star raffle prize!
On Saturday, I took R and M to do their Christmas shopping for P and me and each other. We went to the cinema to watch Nativity 3. Very funny, very Christmassy and very, VERY Cheesy!
I'll try to get a better tree picture in daylight and also play around with some bokeh shots.
But the point is - with only 17 sleeps to go, there is really no escaping it! Bring on the holidays.
