It is 5:15am and I am awake again!
I would rather be asleep but NO,my body has other ideas and so here I am awake again at what is considered STUPID O'CLOCK when you do not have to be awake.
Niamh was also awake during the night but she was happy enough to chat and sing to herself until she went back to sleep.
She is a little sweetheart.

It is her last but one day at school.
Can you believe the LEA has them in school again on Monday and the teachers are being made to come in on Tuesday for an Inset that is just plain mean on the teachers.
Why not just have 2 inset days at the start of term?

Last night I did something I haven't done in years.
I went out Christmas shopping.
Usually I buy all the presents a little at a time from September onwards but this year I have been so unwell that I have been going out as little as possible.
So last night I went out with Runningman and bought all the presents that I still had to buy and now I just have the childminders presents to buy and a wedding present for a wedding that is happening over the Christmas holidays.
AND I am considering doing a very large shop in the next few days using the ONLINE service and then going in just to buy a few things next week.
I sound so organised but really I am too cream crackered to do anything else.
People who LOVE TO SHOP must be very healthy and have a very strong constitution.

Congrats on completing the shopping. I wussed out again this year and did the lot online. It was so nice having the postie deliver my goods.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
