Aargh!! December, where did you come from??

I blinked, and here I am in December! A arrived home on Saturday after 3 weeks away with work.....and boy, am I glad to have another adult in the house! You don't realise how nice it is having someone around until they're not. Just the little things, inane conversations, general sounding-board, nothing special. Just another person! Poor guy, he's been working nights for 7 out of the last 8 weeks and barely slept a wink last night, his bodyclock is all out of whack. And just for fun, he gets to do 2 days of dayshift (starting at 7am) before he starts his Christmas leave on Wednesday. I'm so glad that he's the type of guy who doesn't need his wife to get up and get him off to work in the morning.....really glad!! I don't do mornings so well.....

J heads off on his first-ever school camp tomorrow morning, 3 days/2 nights away. He can't wait and, quite frankly, neither can I! He's been nagging me endlessly over the last month and especially over the last week with things that I need to do before he can go on camp. Like pay for it. And pack his bag. Ok, the payment had a deadline, I can live with that. But packing the bag? A week beforehand? I don't think so. I'm a "day before you leave" kind of packer, and that's exactly what I did this afternoon for him. Took about 10mins, no problemo! I just have to drop into the shops before school tomorrow and get a disposable camera for him to take.....and I can't wait to see the results!!
