Wishing: I didn’t have to go food shopping for Christmas, I don’t have to get much, but I wish it would just arrive in my fridge!
Enjoying: Planning Christmas and what we will make and eat.
Waiting: For school to finish tomorrow. It seems so late that the kids finish school on the 22nd December.
Wondering: Whether I can squeeze in some ‘art’ time today, I am sure I can get a few minutes somewhere, even if I just squash some colour onto a page.
