The last day of school holidays - time to check the "to do" list to see how many I've ticked off. Let's see, I've cleaned the exhaust fan over the stove; started the social comments for semester 1 reports; cleaned out the old garden shed; had the car serviced - but there are still things left undone. I've prepared a lot of lessons for the new term so I'm feeling positive about facing 30 restless 11 year olds on Tuesday.
The chores left undone really don't matter because I've used that time to enjoy art, drama, music, food, laughter, sunshine, wine, books, togetherness and love. The dentist really can wait till next holidays!!
