Just because....


This photo is 'just because'!!! Just because I like it. This is the new skirt I wore last night, a little 'out there' for me but I enjoyed wearing it and these are the indulgent shoes I bought in the US last year (another useless fact about me - I HATE buying shoes and only buy them when the ones I have fall apart!!!), I love these shoes and wore them for the first time last night, they were so comfy!!!
Dinner last night was lovely, full of formality! The teachers spoke about all the kids individually and you really got the sense they had grown to know them well. One of the male teachers had all the Mum's sniffing as he cried through his speech.
Another big day, HS is off to a breakfast bbq at school early this morning as a 'pirate'! Apparently that is what he wanted to be when he grew up! I am helping prepare the afternoon tea this morning, making sandwiches and cutting slices then it is speech day this afternoon. I need to go and find a handbag that will fit a box of tissues!!

I'm not a shoe person at the best of times, but I really love those shoes!
And with the tissues? I am so with you there! I cry at just about anything, so my Old Guy knows to have a spare hanky on him when we go out - and sometimes 2 when it's a school function!

I'm with you on the shoes! Hate buying them. Your end of year posts are making me nostalgic for when I was teaching. Your school's program sounds very similar to mine, right down to the BBQ breakfast for the year 12s
