Hugs CM - so many things combining to make life tough. I hope they concede on the Hemel thing - some things are just not possible.
CC and Lotte your race lists for the year make me feel tired just thinking about them!! Amazing though! I have woken up with that kind of paralysing tiredness where you just want to creep back under the duvet and sleep all day - sadly not an option!
I had a performance appraisal with my manager yesterday. It went really well and I got a surprise pay-rise. Only small but always gratefully received!
Just an example of how awesome she is! I collected her in the morning and we met at home and then went to a meeting at the local Sports Trust together at lunch time. Meeting went past 2pm so I had to dash off and collect Matilda and bring her back to the meeting for another 30 mins. No-one blinks an eye and my manager told me that she thinks my time management and productivity are great which was nice to hear because I'm always a little conscious that I finish work at 2pm and don't catch up in the evening anywhere near as often as I should.
Getting a Christmas tree this weekend and Matilda is so excited. Apparently she stands by the daycare one with a big smile just looking at it. I asked her what happens at Christmas time and she said - Christmas trees! SO I think we can dodge Father Christmas again this year! We were supposed to be going camping this weekend but weather looks crap so will plan some fun activities from home.
