12TH JULY 2005
RK - its hard to be in work when the family are not but, as you say, you can live as you do because you work. Enjoy the good times. Are you having a family holiday this year? Easter is not far away.
Mondays come round too quickly.....
morning half term here but eldest is in another county and has half term next week so thats brilliant news for training......
yesterdays bike ride was very wet and I managed nearly 70 miles with a group so pleased i went even though i had to go to bed to warm up with the electric blanket
Animals don't have half term either - might be useful having the children home though as the sheep need vaccinating, worming, fluking and debugging. Must try and avoid vaccinating myself this year!
I misread 'fluking'. It's a testament to my Welshness that my first thought was why does he need to get the kids involved? Isn't that something you do in private?
I am taking my youngest in to work tomorrow as she is keen to see what teaching is all about. We've just spent a happy hour writing a worksheet for her to do with my students.
Early for me posting!
I am sure she will enjoy being at work with Mum
This morning I am playing at being a bus! Boff jnr has his mind set on a College option for A levels in September as opposed to staying on at his school, problem is the bus for this college collects from our postal town which is a 2 mile walk away along lanes and a very scenic track over the hills. - The bus leaves at 7:45. I walked the route with him yesterday, so he knows where to go, and the plan is he gets a bit of a taste of what his day would be like having to catch this bus.
It does mean I can't get on with anything else until I have collected him though... joys of parenting!
Good luck to Boffin Junior and his quest for broadening his horizons!
Boff make sure you do some practice runs when it is pouring with rain.........I wonder how long it would be before you become a taxi to and from the bus
Tracey.i misread that as well
managed a run last night between 5 and 6 and was recovered enough by 7 to beat my Oh 5-0 at squash again so a good night,.......
Daisy has collapsed in a heap! I had forgotten how tiring teaching is if you are not used to it. Now to get on with marking and lesson planning, the other half of the job. Maybe I should wake her up to help me, so she gets a real taste for it...
Tracey - the wonderful world of work. Why is it when young, you want to be grown up and we spend most of our time when older, trying to recapture our youth? Life eh...?
Well done Seren. There's no stopping you.
Knee is a bit sore after my fall the other week. Never mind.
RK - knee is sore. Think I will have to have a rest today.
Its snowing outside so wrap up warm
We have snow - very pretty... except that Boff Jnr is staying with friends 20 miles away and coming back today. Snow will clear by the afternoon to be replaced with rain - oh joy!
Do take care of your knee Nutty, rest day sounds like a good plan.
We had pancakes We often have pancakes as they are a nice way to control our egg mountian and also make a quick tasty lunch. We don't have a massive mountain - more like a hillock; about 60 eggs a month. Scary to consider though that we eat that many eggs!!!
I forget how many eggs we would buy in our previous city lives - maybe half dozen every couple of weeks, perhaps more bought in specially if we were planning to bake?
Evening ... Snow ! Blimey ! Luckily not round here.
we had a few pancakes.....
went on a 15 mile run this morning.......nice and dry at 7 am but within a mile it started snowing....it got heavier as i went northwards..........it was nice to run in the fluffy stuff but i wish i had taken trail shoes as it settled quickly.......made it a bit harder than it should have been
No snow here. Just off to Pizza Express. Yum yum yum. New kitchen was bought from Tesco which means lots of clubcard points, which means lots of pizza.
Hope Boff Jnr got home safely Boffin.
Well done on your run SEren.
Pizza sounds good Tracey.
Rest day for me. Had a soak in the bath
