Monday morning - Excitement building

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 ............

I can't believe how quickly the time is going now. And wait until you really see how much those "little" boys have grown. And Alan will so enjoy having you travelling with him
