from work to play

Originally uploaded by maraid

This German matchbox label is a fitting celebration of today's transition from work to play, as I am now on holiday for two whole weeks. Woo hoo! I think I really need this holiday and the last week has been t-o-u-g-h. Phew! Graham and I are planning a south side charity shopping day as well as a lazy pub lunch and a cinema trip this week. I'm going to try to fit in quite a bit of crafting, too (while Graham is at work - ha ha, sucker!). During the second week I'll be saying bonjour with a mouthful of croissants, as I'm off to France for some babysitting while we wait for my third niece/nephew to arrive. Exciting! Which reminds me, knitting must come first. Oh dear.


  1. Teachers though, are we ever happy? I've spent the last two days telling myself that I need to be doing something to which John eventually replied, 'you're on holiday for god's sake, what you're meant to do is nothing' have fun in france!

  2. I couldn't stop thinking about next term today, even though I was out and about and having fun. I'm going to go into school one day this week but am not even sure what for. What an idiot... I'm sure I'll forget all about school in France which will be nice! Hope you manage to relax and enjoy yourself soon. Doing nothing is a challenge to get used to - poor old us :)
