Hanging in there

No, I haven't been hungover since Saturday; just busy.

Since I had a week off work sick and I'm disappearing for five weeks from Christmas, I have a bit of a backlog of things to get finished before my holidays. That time is shortened by the work Christmas lunches - which tend to last all afternoon. This year I'm invited to three. I may skip one...

At home my time has been consumed by party clean-up (small), washing catch-up (huge), running kids around, getting the Christmas decorations up, organising next year's booklist, selling this year's textbooks on eBay, and running a million last-minute errands that I keep discovering I need to do before you-know-when. Plus there was a disaster averted earlier this week, when once again, a university proved how utterly incompetent they are at C.O.M.M.U.N.I.C.A.T.I.O.N. It was a stupid, stupid slip-up that almost cost The Middle Child his chance at a place in his dream course. Thanks to Bike Boy doing some of what he's good at (communicating, by a karmic coincidence), the kid got his interview yesterday. So even if he doesn't make the grade, at least he's had a fair go at it.

Phew. On top of all that, my sleep is spasmodic again. *sigh* So I'm just hanging out for 12:00 noon on December 24th. Bring it on, Santa - I need a break!

The party was fabulous, by the way.
