upcoming mid-term (school, not blog) break

Starting on Friday after school : mid-term break, or as they're called here "les vacances de la Toussaint" (= All Saints holidays). This first part of school year went by in the wink of an eye, even though the torrential rains in late September & early October made it busier & less ordinary than usual.

And as every school holiday begins, I wish for two opposite things (or at least two, that is !) : relaxing more (and if possible, sleeping one extra hour) and working more ! How can it be possible to do both ?! Is it utopic ? I don't know. I'll see how I can handle that. Specially that during this period, we will go on a super quick and local getaway, celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday, and remember my father's passing away (3 years on the 21st). Add to that a little extra baking & cooking, resulting in a lot extra working out, a couple of outdoor activities, and extra school assignments ... I'm feeling exhausted already, oh my !

Until then, I'll contemplate Pitou in his new whicker, double decker basket/bed ... he knows about life, doesn't he ?
