My week that is.
It seems to have been a long one.
My job share partner took some long service leave to go skiing*.
It was a good week to be away, as parent/teacher interviews were scheduled, which meant several long days.
Friday afternoon drinks were greatly appreciated! (A highlight of the week really, now that I am spending more and more time at work.)
*She rang on Wednesday afternoon to tell of her unfortunate accident on the slopes, which is going to possibly require surgery, and definitely lots more time off school.
This means that I will continue to work full time for the next couple of weeks.
Last night Lauren had 5 friends over for a sleepover party.
We managed to get all the girls to sleep by 10.30pm, which I thought was pretty good.
However, one of them had set an alarm clock, which began its hideous beeping around 5.17am this morning. So the whole house was awake again with shrieks, as a very loud game that involved the phrase, "Cannon ball coming!" being shouted out, followed be loud thumps. One can only imagine... I hid under the doona trying to ignore it.
Then, by 6.30am, they were all putting makeup on.
There was a slight overlap as the girls were collected, and various members of my family began arriving for lunch.
This time it was the family's turn to celebrate Lauren's birthday.
And it was a beautiful day to sit in the Winter sunshine.

Tomorrow it all begins again.
The week, that is.
There is a lot of washing to get through before Monday though...
