I literally did. not. stop. yesterday. My Fridays can become one of either two things – a leisurely day of pampering and indulgence, or frantically driving from one Atlanta location to another trying to check off a list of ‘things to do’. It’s normally the latter and yesterday was no exception. It started with a spin class. Now I am no regular but
I do love it when I go I love the satisfaction of having been – the hour on the bike is pure hell. One of my neighbors teaches the class and she is lovely, but turns into a b*tch on wheels in class – all for the benefit of the participants obviously. Shopping was then followed by a quick lunch with MM – I had earned it and I still had a calorie deficit after that spin class! A hairdresser’s appointment for Poppy was then followed by Hugh’s last Christmas pageant!
His last as he is currently at a church daycare and next year once in public school, with separation of church and state and all that, there will be no nativity. The pre-K class (last year of daycare) always get to do the nativity play so I was very excited to see what role Hugh had. But NO! Hold on there…for the first year ever I arrived to find that the ‘after school’ group were doing the nativity! WHAT?? Our chance of being a Shepherd, a Wise Man or even Joseph snatched from us!! Now after the events of the day in CT. it seemed trivial to say the least, but I was mad as hell! Most of the ‘after school’ group had attended pre-K so had already had the privilege of performing the nativity – so why oh why deprive the pre-K class from their chance of performing it? I’m so sad:( This now means Hugh won’t ever be in a nativity. Now he is definitely not bothered – but his Mum is! I might even join a Church so we can be in theirs next year. Be assured I made my feelings known to the daycare Director.
At least we got to hear about Harold and his Angels:
For the pageant I did a quick change into my awesome Target dress – quickly becoming one of my best purchases of the year – I always get complements and no one can believe it is Target. The jacket is from Zara and has lovely gold and cream flecks in it – perfect for the festive season – size up though – it’s tailored for waifs. The leggings are H&M and the boots are my loyal Rag & Bone Newburys. (Apologies for photo quality – I told you I was in a rush!).
Love the jacket it looks really gorgeous on you. However, I feel I must comment as I do agree with you about being trivial and I found that element of your post insensitive in light of events that day.
