Hmm Coco - sometimes it's more satisfying to discover a small but easily fixable thing that's been making you feel rubbish, rather than nothing at all!

Welcome back Claire, glad to hear it's been going well


I'm feeling slightly sunnier today Nobody's made me livid yet which is always a good start, I also didn't miss the train, and I'm trying to meet Beanz for a cuppa again (I've texted to make sure she's remembered this time... )

Good heavens Tubs, who can afford that kind of silly money?!

Hope you're feeling better soon Coco

Podds - I wasn't at the station early, that was the point! I used the extra time I had dawdling around at home, eating my breakfast - so I STILL left the house in a rush (just in the car rather than running for bus) and therefore missed train... I'd not call the station posh, but there are a couple of waiting rooms and cafes!

Everyone's getting on my nerves today - good job you lot are only virtual!

Crikey DL - 4 boys all at once?! My sister has 3 and that's quite a lot! Hope they find your replacement soon - don't you be tempted to stay on and help them out or they'll never let you leave!!

(((yums))) Sounds like quite a compliment to your abilities, but also quite stressful! xx

(((Podds))) Definitely avoid putting things in emails! Hope you can work it out...

Hope your foot sorts soon Chuggles

Why was the taxi driver asking about my children? Because the only women who don't have children in their mid 30s are freaks of nature I suppose Love your response Chuggs - must remember that

Lonely at work today - anyone want to come out for lunch?!

Long week here! Anniversary related traipsings on Monday, York yesterday but had to escort member of our advisory group with a brain injury so 4 taxis on top of usual trains (including taxi driver who asked 'who do you do with your children whe  you're at work all day?' Grrr!)

Today been to Newcastle for a celebration/presentation event - was going for a student who'd spent a few weeks working with me in the summer, lovely to see her again and the whole event was really well done, celebratory, students were so confident, research really good, presenting witty and clear - i was both inspired and intimidated

Just got in about 20 mins ago though and now in bed wrapped round a hot water bottle. Got to be on a train again before 8am - beat that DL!


Think I did a spin class at 7.30am today but it seems so long ago i can barely remember...
