Twenty sleeps till Santa. 11 sleeps till the end of term. I am now counting down big-time. Plans for the holidays include decorating the house, baking, relaxing and putting the finishing touches to the first draft of the next Mike Malone.
My son will be home from University the same weekend that my term ends so it will be lovely to catch up on his news and do his washing!!
My husband and I have got so used to him being away (this is his third year at University) that we feel as if we have been hit by a whirlwind whenever he returns as his stuff takes up more room than ours. However, I do cherish every moment that we spend with him because at the end of this final year of study who knows where his first job (if he can get one) will take him.
