Last Friday Sibs and I took a day off.
It was all planned, - teacher got a note to explain the absence fom school
and I organised my day away from work.
The original plan was to just take the morning off to go to a ballet exam...but as the day got closer I kept getting caught up in conversations about what we were both going to do after the exam.
As much as Sibs enjoys Friday afternoons playing touch rugby, she got me with
"but I'll get the chance to just hang out with you - and that doesn't happen very often..."
So I succumbed, and we just hung out together!
|very relaxed and enjoying the preparations before the exam.|
The obvious thing to do when you finish a morning exam is to head somewhere for morning tea.
(Australians are big on morning and afternoon tea).
So together with quite a few other post ballet exam girls we went to the Milk bar.....on a Friday school day!

We then headed to the shops where the staff made a bit of a fuss of Sibs's ballet hair and she got to spend a bit of pocket money.
We pottered about getting ingredients to make pizzas for tea.
We spent an age washing the hair spray from her stiff as a board hair - it took four washes, plus an extra dollop of conditioner!
By the usual 'just coming in from work time' we were cozy in our pj's (it's dark early here), the fire was crackling, the pizzas were made, the weekend had started.
Now and again it's good to stop and bend the rules a little...
