Word Of The Week-Ready

At last it’s Friday, the kids will soon finish school, Chris will finish work and we are all more than ready for the break. I can’t wait to start the Christmas holidays properly, I feel like I’ve been in some sort of limbo state this week.

The kids are ready for a slower pace, getting them ready for school this week has been a nightmare. Everyone has been tired and grumpy, festive goodwill has certainly been lacking lately at our house. I think it’s a mixture of being excited for Christmas and exhausted from all the activities and events of the past few months.

I’m ready to spend some quality time together as a family without any distractions. We have a quiet and relaxing Christmas planned and I can’t wait. We plan to watch movies, eat until we pop and play games.

Another thing I’m ready for is the new year, I can’t wait to write in my fresh new planners. Making plans for 2018 will be on the agenda as soon as the festivities end.

I’ve finished work and for now my laptop will get a well-earned rest. All that’s left for me to do is to wish you all a Merry Christmas. No matter how or if you celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful time.

    I can imagine this last week has dragged a bit with school – we broke up on Tuesday which I was glad about. Hope you enjoy having family time together over the Christmas break and have a very merry Christmas x #WotW

    That is a late finish. I’m sure you are all ready for a well-deserved break. I have one last work job to finish today and I’m packing up. Hope you have a wonderful and restful Christmas. #wotw

    Our households sound so similar! My kids are tired and we’re all in need of a few days of relaxing, watching movies, playing games and of course, snacking! I pick them up in an hour and I am ready! Hope you all have a lovely Christmas x Thanks for sharing with #WotW
