I thought I had nothing Christmassy to report today, but as I stood in the shower (that's where I get all my good ideas from and do all my brainstorming - must be the water on my brain!) I realised that I did do something this morning that was Christmas related.
I helped out at Kieran's preschool because they needed more adults to accompany the children, one adult to two children at least, but some only had one child to look after - like me! The small trip out entailed catching the bus (a double decker) all the way round to St Marks School - yes not even a mile away I doubt - but possibly quicker than trying to get twenty preschoolers to walk there.
We all piled onto the top deck of course, Kieran and I got front seats - which we then had to get off two minutes later. I bet the other passengers were cursing us.
The little ones watched the Reception class of St Marks School perform the dress rehearsal of their nativity play - so that's two I've seen this year!
Kieran actually sat as good as gold, cuddled up to me. I'm not sure if he knew what to make of it all - it was rather crowded.
Then, we all got the bus back - yes, interesting with twenty-odd preschoolers and their teachers and mothers. We filled the returning bus because it was a small one. Typical.
We have another trip over to Castlebatch School on Wednesday - to see another nativity play by their Reception classes! That one won't be such a military operation, as we only have to cross the road. Phew!
