So the madness of Monday is a little madder than normal with this being the final week of school.

And one mother may have lapsed on the washing front and barely had clean uniforms for everyone.

And that same mother may have been madly wrapping gifts at quarter to nine to take in for the Reverse Christmas tree.

But I have managed one quick pentulimate round of Christmas shopping this morning. We are almost there. The rest of my day will be spent making Christmas treats for tomorrow’s class parties and organising the class teacher gift.

But I can’t help feeling that my shopping won’t be complete until I’ve bought something with a day to go. Then I will feel like I have finished!

It’s 13 sleeps to go. I can’t help it, I’m excited.

So I’m getting all festive today and here’s what’s happening on my Monday.

reindeer noses!

And I couldn’t resist. This was such a simple and effective kids’ treat that the minute I saw it I knew my smalls would be taking in reindeer noses for all their friends this Christmas.

It really is the craze sweeping the blogosphere this year,  I’ve seen several other lovely bloggers do it. It really was so quick and the smalls loved it. Plus it is perfect for me, a non-crafty type who can is more at home behind the keyboard.

The original idea seems to comes from here. I used eight maltesers (one each for Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid Donner and Blitzen} one jaffa for Rudolph, a bag and a topper and you’re done. On the back it has space for a To: and From:.

      Taking it one step at a time Cathie! But very much looking forward to a slow Monday next week when school is over for the year. Mad Monday is a school-induced craze indeed.
