Last day of uniforms and nearly of macarons

I remember last year feeling a very distinct line between Advent and Christmas and being indeed quite reluctant to cross it! This year it is all steaming along with its own momentum and I am cheerfully powerless to have so much as an opinion thereon!

We have had Jo's school play, finally, after snow disruption necessitated a daily performance for most of a month! We have attended our first senior school Carol Service and been moved by the passion of still enthusiastic P4 singers.

Tomorrow marks the beginning of the round of parties and non-uniform days, so my L for Alphabe-Thursday is a resounding last day of uniforms and a less resounding last three macarons from Paris! I plan to ration them strictly; hopefully their demise will coincide with Sunday's mince pies and mulled stuff and the sharing of muchly festive fayre! Ready, steady, ....

I don't know about the Last Days of Uniforms, but I sure would be making those Last Macaroons Last! And from Paris...cutting them in half for even Longer Lasting!

Those parisian morsels look fabulous! Glad the play has finally happened.
It has been raining all day here, and now it is colder, and the rain is turning to snow.
I do hope the weather isn't too bad for you.One of our Panto Cast is from Newcastle NI - I thought of you as we were chatting this morning.
Hope this next week is a good one for you [when does school finish? ours break up Tuesday]
Advent/Christmas blessings

May the accursed curse of uniforms soon be banished from over at our place too. I could sure do with one of those macarons. The green, please. Many happy Christmas wishes to you from the far west.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

Merry, Merry Christmas! I enjoyed reading your sweet post and wondering what the last of macaroons taste like. :-)

Pom Pom said...

Whew! I can feel all the fast intensity of the partying and celebrating. Eat those sweet treats when the house is quiet. Joy!

I love how you are rationing out the macarons to make them last longer. By now, my husband would have found them, ate them, said "I've never really liked those that well," and left my standing open-mouthed and ticked off.

I would just have to eat them first.

Thanks for a fun link to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "L".

You are lovely.
