Well done Lotte, totally not surprised you're planning a run already !
CM ((())) Get back to the docs, doesn't sound nice at all, particularly the dreams. Are you still having counselling?
Yuk to blisters and hanging off nails ! I have one which can't decide too, it got a big blood blister under the nail a while ago so is clearly not attached, but is still at the bottom. I just keep trimming it down and it doesn't give me too much trouble.
Very windy here with sporadic gale force gusts - top half of a tree outside our neighbour's house just got blown off! And I've just rescued their pot plants which were disappearing! I'm keeping an eye on our trampoline too as I've seen it lifting a couple of times - a friend's trampoline has been completely trashed by the wind .
As for me, I've spent the morning helping the Y1s with reading then picked up Nicky and now he's watching TV. I need to hoover but I don't want to scare the cats outside into this weather! It is at least sunny at the moment, but very windy.
Sophie's teacher told me on Tuesday in confidence that he's resigned I feel so sad as she loves him and I think he's been great for the school. He's an NQT so has only completed a term but says the school's not in a very good state at the moment (which it isn't but it is being rectified slowly) and he's just not getting the support he should be getting. I worry how it will affect his future employability, but I know it's not a decision he's taken lightly. He's said today that he's done a letter so everyone will know soon, including the kids . The other Y1 teacher is going on maternity leave at Christmas as well so it would have left him basically in charge in his first year of teaching, which isn't fair on him. The teacher who is taking over is the chair of our PTA so I'm happy about that at least.
School Christmas Fayre tomorrow where I am Santa's elf ! Run by the PTA so we're hoping to make a nice profit.
Camlo - yes she is the most old-fashioned woman you could meet! No my mum and brother get on politely but he told her in front of me when we visited recently that "you really are the most annoying woman, I'm so glad I haven't had to spend the last 40 years with you!" so a sharing option is unlikely . The trouble with that comment is that I agreed with him but obviously didn't want him being mean to my mum! He's 8 years older too.
So tired today and got a bit of a gurgly tummy - hubby and I have both had it for a few days. Nicky's been ill so it's probably related to that. No exercise for me since Sunday, and unlikely to be any till the weekend, such is life at the moment :/
Got asked if I was pregnant by a 16 year old student yesterday . I brushed it off as my belly does stick out like that sometimes, particularly if I wear the wrong jumper (hubby won't let me bin it ) but felt really down when I got home and had a bit of a crying sesh upstairs about feeling crap . Feeling a bit better today although the whole work situation bothers me, with not being permanent and not earning much at the moment, but hey ho at least I have a job and French teaching lined up in January for a bit.
Caro - Disney on Ice was fab! The Tangled section is particularly good, so if M hasn't seen it I recommend a quick DVD session beforehand! A lot of little girls were dressed up but there were some who weren't, so not compulsory. However Sophie clearly felt like a princess the way she carried herself the whole time in her dress! Oh and the merchandise was extortionate - Sophie didn't ask me for anything except a Mickey Mouse balloon on the way out. Quick look at the price (£8 or 9, I forget which ) and I told her I'd buy her a cheaper one elsewhere!
Hi TB! Lovely to hear from you and such happy news - great that you are doing so well and that your decision to have the c-section was definitely the right one. 7 hours in one night should not be allowed at this age!
Yeay to Martha's reading but boo to the boot - Sophie's currently (not right this moment I should add!) reading Justin's Jokes which I picked up from the library on Saturday - she's just about getting them, with a bit of explanation from me at times!
