Cheerful times...

Survived the Community Dance at school! It was actually quite fun, but the people who go regularly are so serious! They dance around the gym with serious expressions on their faces, concentrating on their cha-chas or their tangos. I had fun even. We made all the supper this afternoon and then settled in for a good evening. My children came along and helped, which was great. I was so proud of them! I had some good dances, mostly with Finn's godfather, who really moves you round the dancefloor with masterful power!

And so it's over. I have had so many sleepless nights worrying about how many tickets we had sold and would we get it all done but it's OVER. Next... billets to be organised... but in the meantime, I deserve a few days off, I think. One more week of holiday break before the next term begins. Have to go north. I was going to go tomorrow but it's apparently going to snow on the route so might wait... we'll miss two funerals if we go, our elderly neighbour passed away and so did an old friend from the community. *sigh* winter deaths...

And so, it's one in the morning, Steve has shot off to bed and now I have five very buzzy teenagers - well, Finn is practically a teenager - to get to bed (my three and two friends who all helped out tonight). I've made them all a Milo. Christy was supposed to be at a party but chose to help us instead. She just got a text from a friend at that party to say the police had arrived. I'm so glad she stayed with us!

Hmmm, I have to be at Mass in eight hours. I think I'll have a peanut butter sandwich...
