Boo to black clouds. I was a total witch the other weekend. Can't blame black clouds really though - was just miserable and grumpy and vile. Was stressed about the ballet show and the baby sale thing I'd signed up for but after we made a decent amount at that I calmed down and then we agreed to have a good weekend last weekend and just do fun free things - like the museum of childhood and then the kelpies. Never made it to Falkirk wheel this week annoyingly. Weather was rubbish the days I was ofF. Half day tomorrow as they have one last day so mum has her in the am and I will pick her up at lunch. 

After two nights of no tears or tummy aches the bucket is back. Argh. And we even went out of our way to spoil her a wee bit. She was at granny's last night for a sleepover with her cousin and while she was away we tidied her room, put up mirrors she wanted and sorted her desk. Then this am we got her a new pencil pot and desk tidy as well as paper and pens etc so her room is so much more welcoming. Oh well. She did love it. And she slept as soon as I said I'd stay upstairs and have a shower. 


Well done all racers. Amazing work. Lotte I feel your frustration but it looked a little warm and it's an amazing time really.

 CM that's nothing - 2.5 days with an entire office (Edinburgh) without any network access including phones ......that was our reality til I flipped out at our chief exec who happened to be visiting the Glasgow office. Why does IT have to be so difficult??!

No I couldn't see them either TT and I did want to - to make me feel better!! This morning Andy says the first thing the nursery said to him was "had a haircut Fraser?"  Argh.

Off to work altho it's a Glasgow holiday. Got a ton of stuff due into Edinburgh courts today so no skiving possible. Though meeting a friend for coffee at lunchtime and need early departure as got a man coming to quote for new boiler. Sick of ours breaking down. it's bad when you are getting to know the gas men As they are round so often!

no put that bill off as long as poss! We are just over £600 a month for 3.5 days a week which is super cheap for edinburgh. Is literally a fiver a day less than most other places and for the life of me I have no idea why! 

Hows your mum now Ttwirly? 

Hello to everyone huge waves. I am reading but posting is hard as  usually on the train and the signal is precarious  but a big thanks to Caro becauSe your pic today made me feel less self pitying about being so tired and I got off my ass and did 5k. No intervals sesh because hubby had a melt down at Louise so I couldn't leave and I was set to can whole thing and eat cake but then you came into my head and how youare still   running so well  and I  thought move your lard woman. 

Also a wee anecdote for CM. I work for a multi national law firm and for two whole days the Edinburgh office has had zero systems access and zero phones and no one gives a toss. Vodafone were to be there 9am today to identify the fault. Didn't arrive. Oh we will be there at 2.30. They went to fricking glasgow!! So we still have no access and they will haven't identified the bloody fault. i had to work in weege an extra day today and still had no phone as it goes via edinburgh. Thank gawd I'm off on Thursday  I emailed our chief executive who happens to be in Scotland this week and have requested a meeting tomorrow because this is completely unacceptable.

Also going to London. Nov for me and my school pals. If you book hotel via superbreak you get guaranteed cheap rail tickets. It's only about £35 return ed - London. So I have return rail fare and 2 nights at the premier inn in southwark for £185.

just home from tennis and police car was in front of me as I turned into my street. He then parked at my door. Felt physically sick til he said someone dialled 999....  That'll be Fraser then. OMG. Mortified. Really apologetic. He was totally cool about it and said it happens all the time.  Even still. Argh.
