Have a jolly Christmas!
Christmas comes early for us school people. Enjoy the holidays with the children back home. Most parents don't get time off work for the holiday but be sure to maximise the little time you get to spend with the family, engage the children constructively, chill with them at home even if you're just resting. It doesn't have to be an outdoor outing for it to be fun, create fun within....but we children definitely love the outdoor 😁😁 #tistheseason#Christmas#holiday#endofterm#family#friends#relationships#laughter#joy#love#twinlove
One more day till end of term! My two finished today and I’ve rounded the end my term off with school chapel and a massive Christmas pizza party - a casual 175 pizzas consumed in our two houses this evening. Just given the bathroom a quick whizz through and now it’s time for a bath and the Apprentice on catch up. Cannot wait for the holidays to start! Off to @centerparcsuk on Monday and the boys don’t know yet - we’ve been before at this time of year but I cannot wait! #itsbeginningtolookalotlikechristmas
This lucky and slightly mischievous little elf turned up last night - he is fully into the Christmas spirit - LOVE it! I managed to get some lights up last night so we are feeling a lot more festive here - and jt’s the last day of school term - yay we made it! 🎄🎅🤶🎄💫 Thanks to @theprettycollectivenz for our gorgeous new wreath adorning the door.
Seasons greetings and love to you all ❤️💚❤️ Wellbeing grows with kindness 💜🌸💙
The end of another busy but fulfilling term was capped by a return to @bbcradio4 for a @bbcwomanshour Christmas pre-recording.
My fellow guests & I were excited to receive a badge. This may be the digital-age, but a branded badge possess a cuteness that speaks to the inner child.
End of year celebrations with my colleague and friend from @moms_and_tots_somersetwest it was a successful 2018 & I look forward to an even better 2019 working together with our amazing programme! Cheers 🥂
SOCIALS RECAP 🥂🔥 1/2
As term is wrapping up, seems like a good time to review what we’ve been getting up to this term. So many amazing memories from this term! With our membership over double the amount of last year, our socials have been great for club bonding and from them we have become not only a strong community but a true polo family!
The first half of term saw a range of whacky and wonderful socials- Carnival Social 🎪 Nando’s Dinner 🐔 Halloween Social 🕸 and finally the Disney Social for our freshers 🐸
Carnival involved a pretty lit bar crawl, welcoming in all our polo fresh and seeing back all our wonderful returners. 🦹♂️
Our cheeky club Nandos was a much more chilled setting, with everyone getting to know each other over some cracking food with friendly company 👨🏻🍳
Halloween saw some amazing costumes from our members, great pre drinks at Rushford Court, and a lit night at players afterwards 🧟♂️
Thank you to our wonderful social sec @molikasa for these events! It’s lovely to see that your hard work paid off and they were all a hit 🔥
The last social in this roundup was put together by our three Exec Ellie’s and our President. Freshers as frogs and returners as princesses 👸🏻- everyone bonded over some wacky challenges and team building exercises before ending the night with players and a paddy’s 🍕 .
Feel free to tag yourselves and repost if you’re in any of these pics! Next half of term to follow soon .
🖤Well it only took one rude as comment to flick my switch this week. With all things negative it spread to those who didn’t deserve it so apologies had to be made to my closest friend. Negativity is draining and I’m already running on fumes so it will be only positive vibes to get through the end of term. More than likely I’ll turn into a naughty wee elf on the shelf for the last days and cause some havoc 🧚🏽♀️ It’s what I do best😝 Anyway yesterday saw our wee kids do their Christmas service and to sit at the back of the stage to try and do some crowd control was fckn hilarious. I’m unsure what was more entertaining, the actual production or crowd control🤣 I use the word “control” lightly because I doubt that even a police officer in full uniform with a dog would have had any more authority than a small adult, sitting in the back row with a Santa hat on did🤷🏼♀️ Probably need to start a bit of Christmas planning and shopping this weekend. Going minimal this year which will help heaps.🎄#positivevibesonlyzone#endofterm#sorryforbeingabitch#endofyearstress#myperson
Today I was #goodfornothing - sort of #endofterm tiredness.
So, what does one do when one is too tired to think?
Well, funnily enough, I revert back to needlefelt and finished off yesterday’s reindeer.
That’s the joy of felting - it’s so soothing to the brain.
Have you tried it?
It’s almost Christmas🎅🏻🎄😍. We are now taking orders for Christmas lunch deliveries. Celebrate the end of the working year with Sweet Sadie’s 🍦. Book your work/school order now. #endofterm#work#newyear#ordernow
Battalion Christmas Day... The Corporals’ Mess notched a sound 5-1 win over the combined Officers’, Warrant Officers’ and Sergeants’ Mess team. Then onto the traditional Christmas dinner, served by the Officers and seniors. Great day! #piercepride#xmasday#team#endofterm#bringonleave 🇬🇧⚽️🍗
