Good for you Westie. That seems sensible to not miss out on it all together. Seize the day ... you never know.
One of our lunchtime supervisors, ex-parents and parent-helpers died suddenly last night, probably of a heart attack, at the age of 32, leaving 3 children of high school age. She was in hospital with high blood pressure (had been a few months back too) stomach pains (which can be a sign of heart attack). Said to visitors she felt funny, so they went to fetch a nurse. When they came back, she had died.
Difficult day really. Luckily I took a class to a high school taster day, so they were away and busy, mixing with children from other schools, so no chance to brood on it.
Pouring here. I took all year 5 to a sports festival with other schools at our local secondary that most will go to. It was indoors after seeing the forecast, fortunately. All had a great time.
I had a bike ride yesterday, feeling a bit of a fraud since chickening out at the weekend - most of it was great, but incredibly windy on the last bit of the prom! Still, at the weekend I am heading inland, hopefully with the wind at my back ...
We are kitten-sitting my S-i-L's kititen as her original sitter can't do it. Pippette's cat does not like it at all and has turned into a scary fierce wild animal that growls! Think they'd better be kept apart. Still, Pippette should be taking her at the weekend once the carpet fitters have been!!!
I just about talked myself into going for that bike ride, then I looked out of the kitchen window and saw the bushes swirling about in the wind and thought better of it
Now I've looked at the forecast for the week ahead and think, I'd better get used to it! (I've entered Liverpool-Chester but just one way 25 miles as I'm nowhere near ready for 50 after one thing and another - not just chickening out, but other things have stopped me getting out as intended)
Yes I was thinking it was a bit harsh on the homeless to make them run for 24 hours. Is this Boris's new caring Britain?
Didn't go for a ride - a bit gloomy and windy, and I thought I'm better finishing reports first, rather than trying to do them afterwards. Only 2 more to complete (just the editing and a personal comment - not too personal!)
I've booked ferries to get to the Northern Isles. We might not use the return!
Im off to photograph Spirit of the Dance at our local theatre tonight. I haven't done theatre photography for a while, but I do like photographing dance. Looking forward to it. I might share a pic or two, but I have to be a bit careful about it, as to what I have permission to do re. sharing or making public.
