Caro - out of four lost so far (2 front bottom and 2 front top) 2 were shark teeth and the other 2 were not. With the shark ones the baby tooth only wiggled forward as the new big tooth was right behind it. But they seem to be coming in fine - apparently they don't like giving them braces till they are in their teens so even if they were wonky we'd have to learn to love it for a good few years!
CM and Ikkle - I work full-time compressed hours so its half-hour lunches for me but one day a week (cool weather only) I go for a half-hour run. Am ruthless about it, its in my calendar and even if its manic day I still go - feel so much better for getting out the office. And since its winter and I'm not speedy enough to sweat a quick damping down with a facecloth in the disabled loo afterwards does fine. Can recommend it for productivity and sanity levels!!
Come on Sonya
... its like been days since we had any babies on here
Welcome to the world of IT in higher education CM. I'm afraid after 10 years spent working in a university, I've lost all faith in the ability of our IT guys to be effective!
We get a similar problem with the blacklisting and our Head of IT's response is 'theres nothing we can do about it, you'll just have to suck it up. But if you really need to get in touch with the students you could could try writing to them?'. Erm... helpful, NOT!
Caro - will be thinking of you tomorrow. Hope it passes uneventfully.
Megan is also well versed in the art of insolence, back chat and withering looks. Her favourite is always to finish off with 'Seriously?" in her high-pitched incensed exclamation voice! She wouldn't dare at school but by god at home she lets rip! Interesting on the control aspect JT - good plan to try and make them feel like they are still in control and have choice.
EF - am hoping that we can avoid your vommy bug by virtue of our contact window being much smaller than yours, Mr EF's, your mums or Lou's! Going to see a fringe show tomorrow night and am in the balcony so if I do succumb this could be very bad news for those in the stalls :-0
