Cocktail Schmocktail

Hi Team, I have missed you all. Suil, Happy Birthday here again, and I owe you an email. Thanks for caring enough to write! I haven't answered a thing to anyone anywhere for ages. Been totally swamped by work, a 3-day Catholic Character Review looming which finally happened this week and was incredibly intense, senior reports, senior assessments, a death next door to school of one of our Sisters of Mercy so vigil and funeral and all that, been really not that well and just getting better now, and the children have all been really busy with a hundred different things on most days, soccer/netball finals and prizegivings, music evenings and stuff like that. And it's been wet and cold which has made it hard to dry the washing. And I'm not actually complaining, it's just that's what it has been. Tomorrow? Christy's first Ball, a semi-formal this time round, and an Irish Huili for us at the same time, where I play a mourner in a skit and sing 'O "Paddy" Boy'... we're having pre-Ball cocktails (very limited alcohol) for about 8 girls and some of their families first at our house... OMG the house is a disaster and when did I last have a cocktail party? Like... never. I don't even own a cocktail glass. Let alone a bunch of them. I have some really cute up-market little umbrellas for the glasses. But it looks like shopping in the morning. And I missed you all. I can't say much, I'm awfully tired and I have to admit pretty fragile just now but I think it'll all be better next week, with our huge Mercy Day at the end of the week to plan for... that's another one of my responsibilities!! But I'm ready for that one, I think. In my head, anyway. And then it'll be holidays. For two whole weeks. I've just about quit writing for now so who knows what the holidays will bring. A road trip for sure. North. Way north. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay north, if I have my way. Maybe even a pilgrimage to Kawakawa? *shrug* I'll let you know about that one some time...

Hi! How have you been? I didn't see any entries from you. Are things any better over there?

I won't hear from Christy until tomorrow... or later today, anyway (it's half past midnight here). So I'll let you know how she got on. She looked pretty though!

Great to hear from you! I've been swamped too, when did life get so crazy?!?!?!

Don't forget to take a second now and then to breath!!!

Yeah, I was looking for entries from you, too. Life is just non-stop here. Christy had a friend over last night, and she said she couldn't believe how much we fitted in one evening! But yeah, we need to take time to breathe. You and me both. I'll do that tomorrow. xx

Yeah, I've been meaning to update and just haven't got around to it. Not sure what to say to be honest with you!
I took a little weekend time to breathe. Hope you did too! Now it's back to work!

Glad to hear you're getting better.

Hope Christy enjoys her ball (and the cocktails)!

Thanks. I think Christy will have a good time, she's good at that. She's staying the night at a friend's place so I guess I'll hear from her tomorrow some time!

Glad to see you here again, I've been wondering if everything was okay with you...

Hope you find some time to relax and get properly better and to enjoy writing too... those holidays can't come too soon!

I suppose I really ought to post something too!

-I've been wondering if everything was okay with you...
Heh, it was so NOT okay but it's okay now! I've been wondering about you, too.
-I suppose I really ought to post something too!
So yeah, post, that'd be nice. ALthough maybe you have by now?... will go look *g*

I can't write. It's like I have too much to do and can't indulge in the luxury. Which is annoying and kind of heartbreaking but realistic for now.
