Oh and Lotte, I love your Up Helly wotsit! I remember you talking about it a couple of years ago and I watched the video and everything, then I've seen it on programmes like Countryfile or similar - looks fab!
Ooh Lotte we went to Javea many years ago, which is not far from there. Loved it - best holiday!
Boo to sick and diarrhoea bugs, hope they keep them to themselves!
Hugs to those that need it too ((()))
Decided the other day that Sophie hasn't had friends to play for donkeys, so invited her friend round for tea. They had a lovely time - I always get a bit nervous, especially when I have to pick them up from school too! Sophie doesn't actually seem to like playing the same games as other girls - she's desperate to show them how to complete a level on Sonic (her current fave!) or play hide and seek or run around the house or something, and they always want to play with her Lego or dolls!
I'm also a bit fed up of the 3 hours of college teaching that I'm doing. It's a right faff for such a small amount of time and money, plus the head of department has got me teaching maths as well as English, so there's more preparation for me as my maths is distinctly shaky! And now they want to do a departmental observation. I'm feeling more and more that I'm done with teaching, I've been trying to "keep my hand in" for a few years but it's got less and less, and now I've got this admin job at the Uni I'm leaning more towards a quieter life. I'll drag it out till June I think, then maybe say I can't do anymore next year.
CM ((())) Credit card? Is there any way of contacting the water company explaining the situation and trying to set up a payment plan of some sort?? I'm not sure if that's even an option for you. You MUST eat though, you will only feel worse if you don't. Easier said that done I know, but stick to food you fancy or just soup or something light. I remember my mum getting a letter from the Housing Benefit people when I was a teenager, saying they'd been overpaying her and she had to pay back £800, and her crying on the sofa (my mum never cries). There will be people/charities out there who can help you if you really can't afford it. xxx
Yay to a good week Nurofen and starting counselling.
Kinsey - woo hoo! Did you have your Weetabix this morning?
Well my sister rang on Wednesday night and was very apologetic and ashamed, so we had a long chat where I gave some honest truths (and she agreed or didn't realise she was like that) so hopefully we can move on. A little relieved, I have to say.
