School holidays are awesome. No pressure to find time to fit a thousand things into each day, no pressure to kick the kids out of the house on a cold winter’s morning and best of all, no notices from school asking for money or time or for me to remember school trips, appointments or other things that despite having a calendar on the fridge I never remember.
This week I got a red bat-phone direct line installed to talk to Prima about ArtVenture. Well, not really but I wish I could, I spend a lot of time on the phone organising what we need, what they need us to do, all that kind of stuff – lots of those conversations have the words “Just go downstairs to the warehouse and get some of those boxes of pretty stuff and walk across and put them on the pallet of stuff headed my way”. Nothing like pretty stuff being sent my way.
Next mission is to get class supplies on their way from the USA to us, so it seriously starts to get busy. Sneaks will be coming out soon, people will start emailing asking to swap classes or book in the ones they wish they’d book in but didn’t… we’ll get the last minute sign-ups to ArtVenture, those that originally decided they couldn’t come but then realised today IS a rainy day and they should dip in to their birthday money.
So that is how my school holidays is being spent. Phone calls, skype, playing with pretty papers and glue. Creating samples, completing assignments, arranging classes.
Not a bad job.
No “In pursuit of Sugar-Free” posts for a few days, Jacob is on work experience and isn’t here. I miss him LOTS.
Leaving you with a little assignment I did for Prima a while back. It has hard to see pockets & hiddey places made from Julie Nutting Prima tags. I originally put this little mini book somewhere safe to fill with pics from this school holidays. If you know where my safe place is, let me know, I know it’s cliché but the place was so safe that I can’t find it. The part of my memory that stored where I put the mini-book is probably full of all the info from school notices, what to do, where to be and when I need to pay by. It’ll turn up.
