Only 177 days til Christmas!



This plaque, given to me by my nephew Niall many moons ago, has pride of place in my kitchen. On cold, dark, dismal mornings I look at it in anticipation. This morning I looked at it and said
"Yeeeessssss!!!!"
This morning was the first day of my long summer holidays.
I say it now before all the berating comments come in!!
One of the nicest things about holidays is the chance to have a  lie-in. So how come I was lying in my bed, looking at the ceiling, saying
"Dum da dum dum dum" at 6.30am! Usually I have to bribe myself to get out of bed at 7.20, but this morning I was up, had breakfast, put the first load of washing in the machine and was in the swimming pool by 8.10!
Hope that soon passes!.
This day three weeks I will be on my way to Turkey for a month! I plan to be slim and stunning by then.
Swoop.....just dodging all the low flying pigs that have suddenly appeared!
After my swim I felt fresh and invigorated. I decided to have a little wander around the shops. There was a definite spring in my step and I was feeling sorry for anyone who wasn't me! Suddenly the wind was knocked out of my sails by this sign.
Not physically, but I was winded all the same.

No....No....NO!!! It's not time to go back to school. In fact I don't go back for
8 weeks, 5 days and 10 hours!
Yes, I have it counted. I intend to make the most of every single hour. After all
Look after the hours and the days will look after themselves
So I did the same thing I do when I go into a shop in October and they have Christmas decorations on display. I move on swiftly without giving them my custom.
But first I took a furtive look around, whipped out my camera, took a sneaky picture and then legged it! I didn't want to be accosted by an irate owner who would arm wrestle me for my camera!
