I'm excited too. We're on holidays now until the first week of January. How far away that sounds, although it will whizz by, no doubt, as holidays always do.
We don't have many plans for our break as yet. We're heading off to Daylesford for a few days on Thursday, which we're all looking forward to very much, but mostly we plan to just loll by the pool and swim and read through our lovely book stacks and eat lots of yummy summery food and knit and just recuperate for a while. I'll need to do a bit of work, but not for the first few days. Blogging is on the horizon, too. A few of you have asked what our favourite bits of AO5 have been, and which were our highlight book picks, so I'll write a bit about that. I also want to catch up on a few outstanding Aussie book reviews and talk about a few things we've been up to is the past year that has been AO5. Imagine - when we return in January my baby will be in Grade 5 and will be doing AO6. Where has the time gone?
Tonight Jemimah has a girlfriend here for a sleepover and takeaway Thai food to celebrate. I don't think the fact that she is on holidays has really sunk in yet, but it will soon enough. The two girls are currently dancing along to their iPods, which is rather sweet. Both are a bit overexcited. I can't see much sleep happening tonight.
Now that I have a bit of spare time, I should be able to catch up on a few blogs. Do I know about your blog? Do I comment? I'd like to. If you'd like me to read your blog, and I don't already, do leave me a link in the comments. I'd like to get to know you and your family better.
Right now, though, I'm going to drink a glass of champagne with my Beloved. Jemimah is not the only one celebrating tonight. Cheers!
