Love is in the air.

Kyle has been smitten all weekend. He has been chatting to Vicky on MSN constantly and his even changed his user name to "This is Kyle and I love Vicky for ever and ever". I only know this because I sneaked a look when he was having his lunch, which he threw done at break neck speed so he could get back to her. Ahhhhh Young Love - I just didn't expect it quite so soon. He has even ordered her a cuddly bear over the Internet for a Christmas present, after 2 days! Last night he HAD to have a shower and do his hair before he put the web cam on! This morning another shower, hair all spiked up, Lynx on, Blazer wiped down, tie perfect and off he went to school - Boomchickawaawaa. Made me think back to when he was younger and we had temper tantrums and tears every time school was mentioned this lasted all through pre school and infants, every school day was a nightmare with him, he hated it that much - not anymore!

Well on to today's HS:MS prompt is almost. All I could think of was the horrible bananas that are sitting waiting to be frozen or made into banana bread. So here they are almost brown, almost dead, almost frozen or almost baked, take your pick.
.

Now I have all my Christmas presents sorted out (they arrived 20 minutes ago) I am going to tackle Christmas cards today - just don't tell SuzyB as she thinks I'm washing my hair so shhhhhh. Hopefully I will have something to show tomorrow.

Love the banana shot, you always manage to make them look interesting, and with some nearly dead bananas that is a miracle, but achieved with panache!

You are so far ahead of me, I haven't finished my Christmas shopping (that should be my almost for today), and although I have bought my cards, that is as far as its got!

Glad to hear your son's friend (dare we say girlfriend?) has got him showering. It's great when boys make that quantum leap into the human race, isn't it? (I teach boys.... lots of them...I like them really!)

Do you mean Hertfordshire in England or do you have an area of the same name in your neck of the woods? I teach in Hertfordshire in England and it's a lovely part of the world.
