wow chili that sounds fun!! id love to see some stag fights ...ad i dont mean the Friday night type

did your grandad enjoy his day out? was mighty cold. read about ypur Bollywood dancing on FB , made me laugh, id love a go at that!!

Loula it was amazing. The younger pair were boxing with their front hoofs (hooves?) and the older stags (staggs?) were clashing antlers.

I'm having a particularly bad day at spelling, sorry.

I'm sure you would be great at the Bollywood style dancing I looked absolutely awful. The only good thing was that everyone was trying so hard to follow the teacher that no one was looking at anyone else!

morning all

chili - sounds like you had a busy day yesterday.

We saw stags fighting once, as we were walking it was a bit scary! We kept well away

didn't feel like getting up particularly early and jumping on the bike so I didn't, just relished that feeling of not having to get out of bed for a while, didn't manage to get back to sleep. Back to work tomorrow, so feel it was deservedGot loads of marking to do so not sure I will manage much else apart from the swim session tonight

Mathschick, I don't blame you for having a lie in. I must admit I stayed in bed a bit longer than intended this morning. Sounds like you have a hard day in front of you with marking. I felt so sorry for one of Big Girls teachers the other day. He told her that he leaves her book to the bottom of the pile of marking so he has something to look forward to as the whole class just mess around. I am so shocked that she is the only one who listens and concentrates. Teachers have such a hard job nowadays.

Going to try for 15 miles today. I will do 6ish then meet with my friend who will help me through the rest of it. She will join me on the way round which is great as its the middle bit that I tend to struggle with.

ecky - good for your girl that she keeps her head down and works when everyone else messes about. I am having trouble with my big boys's school as there are loads of idiots in his class and they just don't do anything about it. The level of bullying is terrible too - and this is one of the best school's in the county supposedly! A couple of weeks ago he came home from school saying some kids had been throwing books out of the window during english. During this week we have had a letter saying that a couple of kids have said he was involved - he swears he wasn't (and if he had been he wouldn't have told us about it in the first place I think, and one of the boys he went to primary with who is in the same class says my boy wasn't involved) but they have set an after school detention. I am going to fight this battle for him as I don't want him to branded a bad kid, and because in November I emailed into school complaining about the poor behviour in his class and obviously nothing was done about it. Of course, with it being half term, I have had to stew on it all week!

sorry, little rant over!

That's terrible and I hope you get it sorted. Thing is you know your son better than anyone. I am proud that she does ignore the rest. She gets quite cross as she does feel sorry for the teacher as he tries so hard with them.

24/02/2013 at 09:38

I know he isn't an angel, but he also doesn't lie to us, he has told us about stuff that he has done (like using his phone to make cat noises in class) so I know that he would admit it if he had done this. I am just so cross that they allow a class to behave badly all year. Also, the book throwing thing happened while the teacher was out of the room, she shouldn't be leaving them unattended!

mmmmmmmmmmmmorning all - gosh its very tidy here in CRAC towers now Matt is in Vietnam. no custard doughnuts left lying around on the sofa.....

24/02/2013 at 09:41

aw MC, i hope you  sort it out. not nice when your kids get accused of things unfairly.

24/02/2013 at 13:37

thanks loula

oh, not looking forward to going to work tomorrow, but only 5 weeks and it is Easter and we are having a week in Sussex, just hope the weather warms up a bit so we can go to the beach

24/02/2013 at 14:10

Mathschick, the Cat noises thing does make me smile but like you say, he would tell you. It does make me cross that they don't seem to sort disruptions like this. How are kids supposed to learn. It wont be long till we break up again now will it. I am on countdown already. I'm sure the weather will improve.

Hiya Loula, wow yes, its very neat and tidy with no cake crumbs at all.

Just back from a lovely 11 miles. I did 3 alone and met my friend where we did another 8. I walked just over a mile home too so covered just over 12 although I really need to up the miles. I need to think of another fundraising idea for London as I will struggle to carry Trev as my training has been a lot less than I anticipated. I may do something with him next year and take him round some shorter races. I may have to do another cape and bring Star Girl out again.

my big boy seems to have returned from his scouts weekend as a zombie! I am guessing he didn't get much sleep last night

24/02/2013 at 16:50

miss LLB returned home at lunchtime after a sleepover weekend fri night to today-she looked zombified too! i filled her with lunch then ran her a hot bath and now shes perked up a bit in her PJS

24/02/2013 at 17:06

mine doesn't seem to think he needs to go near water! He is not going to have a choice - but we'll wait till after tea time! He is just chilling watching telly

marking all done

24/02/2013 at 17:22


Homemade chicken and mushroom pie anyone? Haven't any pudding though so someone will have to bring one.

24/02/2013 at 17:45

MC, you wait, a few years and he will be in the bathroom all the time gelling his hair etc to go out on the pull

24/02/2013 at 17:47

he is bad enough with the lynx now!! 

chicken and mushroom pie sounds amazing

I have beef casserole and it smells lovely. Beef from local farmshop - they have a big sign outside saying 'our own beef'...

24/02/2013 at 18:04

Mmmmmm Chicken and Mushroom pie sounds lovely, yes please Chilli.Do you make your own pastry too?How about Choc Brownie and ice cream for pud?

Mathschick and Loula, I hope your kids recover from lack of sleep. Mine get so grumpy when they have had sleepovers or trips away. Mmmmm I love beef casserole too spesh with good beef.

Chicken dinner here with lleftovers being used tomorrow for a Chicken and Veg pie.

24/02/2013 at 18:18

choc brownie with ice cream sounds lush, maybe not till after swimming though

the beef was amazing - so much nicer than the stuff I normally get from the coop!
