I have been busy in a school depressing myself at how dysfunctional some teams can be. Have to remember that the rest of the week has been really positive, especially in another site getting a better than expected outcome.

I am therefore in London not shopping. Is that a waste of a black Friday?? Do I really need a 52 inch screen 3D TV with ??50 knocked off? Did you get anything exciting Daffers?

(((( tooth holes, abceses, pacemakers, sore backs, dodgy knees, operated eyes and stuff))))

I'd be up for Secret Santa if there are enough of us around and someone willing to organise us. If I took it on I would get all the presents and that would be the secret bit!

Pie night tonight. This is the rock and roll lifestyle I lead. Happy weekend everyone.

Morning all

Podds - grim reading indeed. You wonder if and how people who do these things might change and understand what they have done. I hope so.

I am on a train. On my way to a leafy London suburb for the next 2 days. I have taken the nail varnish off.

Happy Thursdays. Hope the garmins prove you are speedier than a speedy thing

(((((Daffers, the Pipples, Westie, Spence's Dad, Sluggie, M.eldy's mum and anyone else I've missed)))) Gosh - it's obviously that time of the year.

M.eldy - think I knew of Beebs but didn't know her. I shall leave some positive thoughts in Frome for her when I'm next there

I made an executive decision. I am supposed to be at the Academies show today, I decided to work from home to catch up with some work and be ready to drive down to the New Forest if we get the call. I thought I was in danger of forgetting where I live otherwise.


Similarly to you Farty - I got my kit out, charged my running watch, then failed to get up in time to fit a run in. Just trying to book some annual leave - the fact that I still have 10 of my 25 days to use before the new year is proving interesting. Must remember to be better organised next year!

Very bizarrely I have painted nails. FC is practicing as she has an assessment next week. I NEVER have painted nails. It feels and looks so weird ! I will remove it as soon as I can get away with it!

Happy Wednesday - hoe the sun is shining where you are

Hello again. Was half way through my post when my phone decided to stop playing.

Was going to suggest a stern word with your gums and a pleading request to your dentist to sort it out!

Seems to have warmed up a little today. Even managed a plodette this morning. All wrapped up and sweating like a sweaty thing.

Happy Tuesday one and all. May the leaves in your garden blow into a tidy corner.

I am breakfasting in Frome. An interesting day as I was in a school yesterday when they got the big O call. Very handy as I was already booked there for today. I am also awaiting a possible call back to the New Forest tomorrow. Never a dull moment!

Wooo hooo Blithe. Impressive running and skating.

((((Daffers)))) have a stern word woth your gums

Happy belateds Westie - hope the hangover was kind

(((((Pippi)))) hope you're feeling better

I didn't laugh about you falling flat on your face M.elds (the n't might be a lie)

((((Daffers))) hope the tooth hole is getting better

I didn't run this weekend, it was a bit chilly

Another mammoth week. Off south for two days, may be back on Tuesday night, may not. Oooh the excitement.

Happy frosty new week full of opportunity and slip hazards

Podds - if it affects a few people someone is bound to be in a union - get them to ask their rep. If your school is LA run you could go through to the main education HR department. Or as Daffers suggested ACAS should help or point you to someone who can. Last thought is to email Snaily as she works in the wonderful world of HR.

(((((Daffers)))) Hope your roof hole gets filled with good stuff rather than manky food

(((((Pippi, Mr Pippi)))) hope things are looking up for both of you

Feeling left out of all the medical talk, I was at hospital today having my eye balls checked. I am now on the watch list for glaucoma - high pressures but nothing to worry about just yet. Need to go back in a year so they can poke me again. 

I have a day at home and loads of work to catch up on  - I'm feeling that it's not going to happen - I have that Friday feeling - is it nearly clocking off time?

Happy nearly the weekend

Did the wind blow everyone but me and Daffs away???

A very admirable time Daffers - hope the tooth wadding does its stuff

Right - girding my loins for a long drive to Godalming with Chris Evans and the gang.

Happy Thursday
