This week has been so hectic - not with the kids really, only scouts on Thursday evening so with them not so much of the taxi service
However for me at work I've been working on 110% capacity - not something that can be sustained for very long, and not a particularly comfortable seat to sit in either.
A training course on Tuesday, a very long day of intensive year end stuff with my Finance Officer on Wednesday, a return visit by her on Thursday as Wednesday's 8.30 to 6.15 didn't knock everything on the head and finally trying to get some other imperative deadline stuff finished against the clock yesterday just about finished me off
It's also been a really emotional week for Sarah - more exams and yesterday was the Year 11's leavers' lunch.
Here she is all dressed up, with her hair being allowed to do what it does naturally, standing with her Head of PE.
Both her teachers and her peers have written some lovely things in her Year book - makes us very proud of her.
There were lots of tears all round as, although she is so looking forward to 6th Form College in September, a good part of her will really miss school. I only hope all three of mine enjoy it so much that they're sad to leave. She does still have to go in for exams for the three weeks up to the 20th June so she hasn't totally broken free yet. And of course there's the all important Prom on Friday 13th to fit in too - who picked that date, I ask you?
Today is the start of the late Spring Half Term break - it is a Bank Holiday on Monday so Nigel gets a long weekend - he's been dashing here and there this week too with UK trips and a day over in Holland - phew!!! I think we all need to step back and take a deep breath or two
I have fitted some sewing in during this week - my giveaway for my 400th post is complete (strawberries is a bit of a hint), I have quilted my ALQS offering and just need to bind and label it and I've also fitted in a little stitchery for some more little quilts.
I've had some nice post drop through my letterbox including a mini-quilt from Hedgehog following on from her visit in April and a couple of nice bits of fabric from Clare - I'll share these with you next time. However I have failed miserably to post out the two pink heart quilts yet - the Post Office just didn't call loudly enough to be heard above the melee - they will have to go next week
