Happy birthday Daafs. At least we've known you long enough that you're a proper grown up number ...

Pass that Galaxy round, Podds. We're right behind you every step of the way, you know! I've been doing fractions today. It's a bit of a jump to Year 4 from Year 1. You think you know what you're doing then get faced with equivalent fractions, which I know how to do myself (obvs!!!!) but then didn't find it easy to explain!

Chuggie that does sound an interesting Shakespeare talk, with interesting speakers too!

The cat is adopted as some friends of Pippette's are moving to a flat where they cant' have her. Her name is ... "after the girl in the Minions movie ... the same as the woman who lived next door to that couple who grew vegetables and kept a pig in the back garden." Answer below ...

(((MC and mum))) I suppose it's good that things are moving quickly. Older parents don't always like to ask for help though, do they?!

Funny old day here ... Lovely and sunny after rain when I got up. Now it's coming down like stair rods! I don't htink there's hail in it, but it sounds hard enough!

I am considering doing the Liverpool-Chester bike ride in early July. I have thought this before and not done it, but this year I really mean to ... but then with the wind we've had, I've not really got out ... still, the short one-way is only 25 miles, which I could do, but would hurt without training. The out and back is, surprisingly, 50 miles which would be the furthest I've ever gone ... I'd like that challenge, but in only 2 months? hmmm. I don't know if I have to decide before I enter!

How's Meldy's legs? Should have been a doddle if you didn't have to swim and cycle first!

And the answer is: Margot!
(she's decided to leave her as Margot, rather than think up a new one, even though the cat doesn't know her own name)

I actually got my bike out yesterday! Only went round to Pippettes and painted a bit then came home the pretty way along the prom, just to start getting bike legs and bum back!  I haven't done the whole house, Chuggie! She has said if it wasn't for her dad just getting on with it she'd have given in and paid someone ... At least the boiler and new radiators are all done now so we can get on with the rest. Did I tell you local firms were quoting 3500 as we expected. British Gas? Well, they'll be dearer ... 8000+ 

Anyway we now have a beautiful fluffy black and white cat! She's a bit nervous but friendly and comes for a fuss when you pss, pss her (if you know what I mean!) I've just woken up to a cat silhouette exploring the bedroom. The house is empty. Ones rowing, ones working on a house. I'm going to plant up some baskets and leave them in the greenhouse to settle in before I go round to put a final coat on the study/little bedroom!

(((MC))) Good luck with the interview Snaily. As Daffy says, that will help you decide if it's the right move I don't think any public service is a good place to be at the moment!

right, I off to find a marathon tracker! Go Meldy!

Hello, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth ... Spring Break. I didn't do any of the virtuous things I'd planned, but I did sit round in a dressing gown doing the crossword a lot!

I also sanded and painted in Pippette's house - she now feels a bit more positive and less overwhelmed as she can see progress.

I am now a class teacher again, and I realise how stressed I have been earlier in the year. I feel like 'normal'! although I have kept my afternoons to teach French and Computing to the other 2 classes as well ... on Wednesday with the hellish lot, I did wonder what on earth had possessed me (that's one where a diagnosis and medication has worked wonders!)

Tomorrow Pippette is adopting a cat so it will be living with us until she moves out! It looks like Batman and has a name she doesn't like. Suggestions? I said Bruce.

Hugs, waves, yays, and vibes all round!

Well, we had a great time at the hen do - relatively tasteful compared to those we see every weekend in Liverpool!

We did Go Ape first in the soaking rain all morning at Delamere Forest. Scary but fun! Apart from the 'hen' and her friend from school, I was the only one of our colleagues - and the oldest by about 20 years.

Then to a lovely hotel on the outskirts of Chester where we met up with the others. they all went off, dressed up in tutus and legwarmers, to an 80s dance class - I didn't - I will swing through trees and get cold, wet and muddy, but I don't dance ... I did go for a swim and a soak in the hot bubbly pool.

Dinner out in Chester - a bit lively and silly, but all good fun too. The waiters in the Italian restaurant all joined in with the flirty fun too and took it all in good part.

You should try it, Westie. Fancy being the old cock among all the hens!

This afternoon I came back to an empty house - they were round at Pippette's, working. So I went round too for the first time. Its a nice little house, built around 1900, very similar to ours, but a little smaller. It has a newish kitchen and bathroom fitted, but has been minimally decorated - some new plastering in rooms, but then not yet papered, and woodwork with a hurried coat of white emulsion slapped on. so, yes, there's a lot of work to be done, but it is pretty much the decorating, nothing too structural.
