(((((((Chuggy)))))) Difficult decisions to be made but your heart will tell you what to do. We took Bulimic cat to the vet a few days before we had to, but we didn't want to prolong any pain or discomfort which would really only have been for our benefit and not hers. I don't regret that decision. 

~~~~~Coco's car~~~~~

Yay Podds - glad to hear you made it back almost intact

And again - Noggy - show us you legs!!!!!!!!!!!

Spence - fingers crossed for your pussy

As indeed expected last night was a difficult one. The social workers knew we would be happy to keep the lad but that 'was never going to happen'. The social care world is not one which works in the most flexible or responsive manner. A sleepless night of tears and silence. Hopefully today will allow him to start to process things and we will support him to see the positives in the move.

For the few - happy working day. For the rest of you - hope the sun shines on your activities

Ello Ello


(((Tubs))) Shetlands are evil - one bit my knee when I was out on a run - obviously wasn't going fast enough.

MC - for one of my leaving presents they had a collection and gave the money to the alcoholic in the team - rather than the planned theatre vouchers I had a slurred speech and a handful of cash and a fumbled apology. Still makes me smile.

Show us your legs Noggs

Yay Larry

I do lists to waste time - I don't then look at them or use them.

Today I have been excused from driving to Bristol and back for a 2 hour meeting. Instead I am working from home. OH keeps telling me to go to the doctors. Why bother when they'll tell me I've done my back in - I already know that! Took the easy option - just sandals - no socks - ha! 

In for a fun night tonight. Social worker coming round to tell lad that he is going to stay  permanently with the foster carer he met yesterday and hated. Wants to stay with us, we'd have him but it's not our decision, and obviously we can't tell him for fear of making things even harder for him. They don't make things easy for anyone really. He will then get to stay with us until Friday, or Monday they're not sure just yet. Joy to the world!

Happy Tuesday - the sun is shining, the washing is drying and I've had a mini pork pie for my lunch - having children has added a whole new dimension to my working week!

Holidays? what's them then?

Comedy morning. Got stuck in a 'leaning on a table' position for a good 25 minutes. It took me over an hour to get my socks on. Painkillers kicking in now. Fears of being trapped in a Cardiff hotel unable to move subsiding. Off to work then. Wish me luck!

Happy new week full of all sorts of possibilities and excitement, oh, and a lot more screaming kids and frazzled parents

Evening all

~~~~~~~~(((((((Podds)))))))~~~~~~~~~ hoping you survived with your lady garden intact

((((((Snaily)))) - don't be pinching crutches - go for the wheelchair - what's the point in working for the NHS unless you can take advantage once in a while?

Chuggy - have seen the news about the plane and the Dutch connection. My initial reaction was much as it ever is in these matters - the utter despair at man's inhumanity to man. Having seen further footage, sadly, my opinion hasn't changed.

(((Noggy))) hope the knee holds up

Wooo hoooo the racers and runners - some might fine performances

KieranG  - proud Dad indeed

Spence is a flea bag, Spence is a drunken flea bag.

MC - happy new car

We have had a busy weekend - lots of reluctance to try new things until OH and me have a go then all in crazy enjoyment. Who'd have thought a sprinkler could cause so much excitement? Have had our first Mexican standoff - OH won (no surprises there) Had a day trip out to 'Conkers' (East Midlands outdoor activity place) where we went bonkers Resulted in me doing my back in. Limped round for most of the day - I feel like an 80 year old. Had to drive to Cardiff tonight for whole day meeting tomorrow. Driving OK - just the getting in/out of car. Many comedy moments!


Have just arrived and had a medicinal glass of wine. Happy end of the weekend and the dawn of a new working week - well for a few of us anyway.

Morning all

Yes I too forgot to commend Daffers on her fantastic fluting - a professional musician in our midst -wooo hooo

How long are we betting before Kieran signs up for a marathon?

I had two options for graduation, I missed the first as I went to America to do a volunteer exchange programme. My  Mum and Dad were so upset I had to sign up for the December round. I was the first and only person in my family to go to university. They had the photo up for years until I stole it. Little bleached flat top poking out of the mortar board and nose stud always amuses me.

You all sound like you've been making the most of the good weather. I'm working from home today and it's a bit grey here.

Happy Hot Friday - may there be an ice cold beer waiting for you at the end of it

Morning all

I read back yesterday then forgot to post. I seem to remember that Kieran is in for a right treat with the decorous Spence and her lessons in running etiquette.

Our lives appear to have changed entirely. Meet my new friends Sing Star and MarioKarts. I am reading Mathilda and standing on little toy cars in bare feet.

Today I am on a train heading for the heatwave. Happy Mediterranean Thursday. Hope a gentle cooling breeze wafts your way

Let her play ball - what's the worst that can happen? ..... Her leg might fall off?

I don't own a dog

There's probably a reason for that

Oh Tubbs - I'm so sorry (((((((((Tubbs)))))))

Yums - gunshot to the knee caps should prevent access to the upstairs for a while.

Kieran - you are lost to me now! 

And Noggs - running again - not like you.

Hoorah and falderee - just heard on the news that Mr Gove is to be replaced. Not that it will have the most immediate impact but lets hope a more considered approach to educational reform.

Mr O was considering letting us increasing our numbers - so not a full inspection. We spent much time ruminating on toilets and CCTV. 

Never a dull moment

Happy Tuesday - is it really only Tuesday? This is going to be a long week
