Weekend Coffee Share: A Desire to Recharge

Join us for some coffee time!

If we were having coffee, I would greet you with a tired smile. I am looking forward to the winter break for then I can rest and recharge my batteries. This is an exciting time of year for the children and their constant energy tires me a little. Most children in my class are looking forward to Santa depositing gifts at the Christmas tree; and all children are looking forward to two weeks at home with no school. Yes, two more weeks and we can all have a little break.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I have bought all my gifts for the great day – and that most of what I can put in the freezer has been stored. Now I need to buy wrapping paper and tape and then spend time getting the gifts ready for everyone. I bought all of the gifts within walking distance of my home so I did not need to get on buses and spend time travelling to buy what I wanted. I was so pleased when IΒ  found what I was looking for at the stores nearby.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that this week looks to be a busy one at work. On Tuesday, the entire school is going out for the annual movie day to see The Grinch. As can be expected, my class is looking forward to it. When we get back, we will all have lunch and then we will spend the rest of the afternoon working on our Holiday door. Previous experience has shown me that I cannot do anything too academic as the children are all hyper from the field trip.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that Wednesday after school is our staff Holiday party. We will be celebrating at a local restaurant. And eating Mexican food. I will tell you next week all about the food. We don’t get much chance to socialise with colleagues so it will quite a social event.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I blogged a little more this week – and even managed to write a flash fiction which I haven’t done in a while (titled Approaching Change) I have missed writing and need to make an effort to get back to it. I will try to write another piece this week – my creative writing muscles need to be flexed!

If we were having coffee, I would wish you a wonderful week. Mine will be chilly as we have had snowfall and it feels like winter.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Enjoy the upcoming break! I have been giving gift cards in recent years, but my recipients seem happy about them, so I’ll keep doing that. I am taking my 21-year-old granddaughter to get new eyeglasses on Wednesday. She requested them as her gift…and we will also go out for lunch.

    1. I admit I enjoy receiving gift cards – especially to the bookstore 😊
      I do know what my children and husband will enjoy, though, and I love seeing their faces as they open the various sized boxes under the tree.


  2. Hi C-
    Hope the Grinch movie delivers

    I like how you wrote “deposit gifts” nice word choice
    And how cool that you were able to shop so close and find what you wanted.

    If we were having coffee I would tell ya that I had a little R&R this weekend and feel grateful –
    And hope your holiday break is great when it arrives

    1. I try to support the shops around my area – even though some are chain stores (like my favourite store of all, the bookstore!).
      The break is always great when it arrives – though my children are beginning to organise outings. It will be fun though as the Christmas period is always filled with family fun.

  3. Enjoy the break, Colleen. I’m sure you are ready for it. It is wonderful that you are already organised. I am partly organised, but not totally. Soon. Have a wonderful Christmas!
