a day off sick

Over Evies birthday weekend she had a horrible croup sounding cough...

...it didnt stop us doing birthday stuff on the Saturday though :)

As Evies cough still sounded horrible yesterday morning I kept her off school (after asking in the school facebook group if the school would be ok for her to go in with the cough).

I booked her an appointment at the doctors (just to rule out her being contagious) and it wasnt until yesterday afternoon (by then her cough was sounding chesty) her chest is clear and she is ok to go to school :).

We dont have Gym trail today either (as her last session before the holidays was on Friday) and I am going to pop into Aldi this morning to get our Christmas Dinner (main thing) :)

last session before Christmas

Yesterday was my last helping out session before Christmas (next Wednesday is the last day of term).

I did more gluing into books and stuck the class awards up on the wall of fame :) best table, star of the week and mind growthset :)

I was also asked to come in on the first Monday that they are back at school to help in their history off the page day they are doing the great fire of London.

I have already bought a black dress that I can wear :)

nada nada

Yesterday I finally got around to placing an order with Sainsburys for some Christmassy food :)

I wanted 3 things...

a reindeer cake

stuffing parcels

and a chocolate caramel star

the only thing left in stock was the chocolate caramel star

I saw in the Aldi that they do a Robin cake so I will try and get one next weekend (as that was what Evie wanted) :)

what a great idea

I just saw this article and that its a great idea :)

I have always thought that bus and train ticket prices need to be reduced so that more people would use them, but Luxembourg is going one better than that :)

It would be nice if they did something similar here in the UK :)

knot sew good

I was asked to go on yesterday rather than my normal Wednesday morning to help the kids sew christmas stockings.

I arrived for 1pm and the teacher was showing the kids on the white board how they were to sew their stockings, she said that the threads had to be split into strands so tat they could be threaded through the eye of the needles (my heart sank - I knew that I was going to be no use).

The threads were getting knotted up too as we were trying to split them.

Thankfully F's Mum and H's Mum were helping too so they managed to thread the needles (I did manage to thread one so I was happy with that :)).

I did tell the teacher that I wasnt any good at threading needles and she said that she wasnt either (although she was just being kind).

I think the kids have cushions to sew later in the year too (I will make see I tell her teacher how useless I am :)).

Evie said that she was happy that I was in class yesterday so tat is good.

helping me

Evie has decided that I need help with my chocolate advent calendars...

...she helps me by finding the right doors, then opening the doors and then she helps me eat the chocolates! :)

I may have to buy a secret advent calendar that Evie doesnt know about :)
