Its a wonderful crisp winters morning for Durban LOL (16degrees) so thats a jumper, winter shoes & hot coffee........ nevermind that by 9am it'll be warm & lovely.
I am excited to realise that a) its 6 weeks & 1 day till my DD & I leave for New Zealand !!! The last time we were there was 2002 so its really exciting for me to see my nephews who were "little" boys & are now teenagers ! and of course my dear SIL & my BIL.
Also my own neice & her little ones ( I call them my honourary grandchildren my sister & I share happily ) & my nephew & his family who has grown so much . Blowing kisses on skype is wonderful but as I said to Andy (my neices husband) I need one of his big bear hugs.
b) its 4 weeks till my DH & I spend the long weekend in Nottingham Road at Fordoun !!! That will be wonderful & I am grateful that we are able to go to special places and spend very precious time together.
and its only 4 weeks till my new colleague comes into my office to work together till the end of the second term - wow. I am so looking forward to handing over to a "super new bursar".
While I am very sad to be leaving "my" school I am not leaving my friends, I will be able to visit the school at special times & just enjoy.
My DH is very excited that I will be in our home office and its quite contagious to think of having extra time to myself.(my DD just laughs & says Dad will keep you so busy) Selfish well maybe a little, but I do deserve "me" time. Also DH travels every week & I will pick & choose when I go with him.
So no Monday blues for me just a huge excitement building ............
