DL could I please borrow you to come and tell my SLT some home truths too..........

After a relatively peaceful couple of weeks they are doing my head in again with their idiocy and complete short sightedness........

Morning All

Nice work with Ned JFF - how old is he again?

I am a huge advocate of walking the dog before work.......tends to make leaving them that much easier and better for them and the house generally!!

Morning All

Happy Birthdays to Daffy, Mr C and the King   

Now I never thought I'd say this but ........... you can have all the choccy........

No - I haven't turned over a new leaf - just feel rough!

Clearly was a good idea to not swim yesterday (even if for all the wrong reasons) but ended up shivery and going to bed by 8pm, waking at 5am with a cracking headache and feeling nauseous..... 

2 lots of nurofen down the line and I meandered into work about 0930 - nobody noticed needless to say - and will take myself off home early too.....

Supposed to have a 100 mile (or maybe 78!) bike at the weekend so need to be on top form for that..........

This is the new you Daffs  You can always trip your sister or push her into a bush accidentally on the run or some such thing  You are doing very well (better than me who's sloped of swimming due to barely sleeping last night thanks to the dogs being idiots..........in turns.........every 45 mins or so just as I was dropping off...)

Yep Melds - Weds to Weds signed and agreed

Should I ask how you managed to get assigned a couple of extra flights of stairs??

No snow here but freezing this morning in the teeth of the gale........frozzled my eyebrows..........

More cheery this morning despite a freezing cold walk (2.8C on my thermometer) with howling onshore NW wind.......

But - school has authorised 3 lots of leave (including a week in term time in Sept)

And Head of Maths has just rocked up with a family size bar of Galaxy for me as he can't meet his submission deadline of this Friday and needs and extension  He's very young (27 I believe) and half the girls in the school have a crush on him......even my invigilators think he's sweet (apart from Dave!!)

Go for it Pippi - 2 months to prepare for 50 is eminently doable......  I'm sure your hill walking has given you a good base fitness

I'm doing London to Lands End in July for British Heart Foundation - 350 miles in 3.5 days.....and the London Revolution in just over 2 weeks' time - 185 miles in 2 days.....

...........furthest I've done in training to date is 1 day of 53 miles.....

I think the London weekend is really going to hurt

You should try our version of Shakespeare here......thanks due to one of our slightly "less able" pupils aged 14........

After much discussion of the various relationships between characters / history etc it appears that Shakespeare is a Roman whose brother is Julius Caeser and whose parents are Cleopatra and Henry 8th

Oh and Henry 8th is so called because he had 8 kids...........

I daren't check which GCSE options this kid is doing!!!!!!!!!!!!
