My Word Of The Week and R2BC

By | December 18, 2014

This last week, with all the changes to routine that a very fast approaching Christmas brings, has definitely had its ups and downs.

But, we’re thinking extremely positively and my one word to sum up this week would be:

And here’s why (the R2BC bit):

1. Singing
We attended D’s school carol concert on Monday and our girl sang “White Christmas” as a trio. It was amazing.

The frightened child who was too overwhelmed in mainstream to take part in anything, has been replaced by a “lovely young lady”, as someone told her. There was anxieties beforehand and she dashed back to me afterwards but, for those 2-3 minutes, it was wonderful to watch.

2. Elsa et all
I was saving this for Christmas but then, after a couple of fragile school days for D, decided to pop it on as an early present yesterday. She squealed with delight when she saw it and immediately rushed back downstairs to nearly bowl me over.
Blankie and Bunny like it too.

3. Ho Ho Ho
Today has brought yet more change at school, but it’s been particularly grin-inducing for D, a visit from Father Christmas.
He’s a clever chappie when he goes to her school, always choosing their individual gifts to perfection.
D’s was a 5000 (yes, 5000!) bead set and she couldn’t wait to show me it this afternoon.

4. Assembly
Tomorrow (Friday) will see an end of term assembly and (hopefully) more singing from D as a trio. They have been asked to repeat their performance.
She does like to receive certificates (or bertificates as she used to call them) and this one was fantastic:

It has been carried around and coveted by D, as you can probably see from the crinkles, I think the laminator will be coming out just to protect it a bit more, but how fab to be “Music Star of the Term”.

D is so looking forward to Christmas (fragility aside) and she is an absolute joy to be around when she’s super-de-duper excited about it all.

T is looking forward to the rest that two weeks off school brings and a break from wearing ties, he has enjoyed the fact that this last week has brought change (meaning fewer lessons) but he has been a tad exasperated by some of the activities that he should be enjoying.

And Glitter choose a challenging place to look over everyone today, inside our candle holder, can you see her?

This all sounds so positive and yes, joyful! So pleased for D that she got up there and sang, and hope it’s gone well again today. And T looking forward to not having to wear a tie made me laugh! Thanks very much for sharing with #WotW and have a fab Christmas x
