Yes DL - we got all the results yesterday.....today is about the kids

It seems that with the new way of reporting exams and various other Gove inspired changes we are the only school in the area not to have dropped our %ages considerably...........

I am already however grumpy and quite  as the teachers all suddenly pop out of the woodwork today and already some of them are moaning about how it's only a week and a bit until the start of term........FFS they've just had 5 weeks off!!!!

Oh well.........

Kids start coming in at 1000 - we said 1030 but they'll be early

Already done a radio interview with 2 pupils who came in specially early which apparently was broadcast about an hour ago (no idea where!) and press here will only print stories with pictures so we have some 6th formers in to take photos which we can then send off....

Don't know if any of you have been watching the BBC2 programme at 7pm in the evenings this week on young vets?  One of the places featured each evening is the RVC small animal hospital where the DG has been residing this summer.........

Tis wierd to watch it and for it to seem so familiar but so far not seen any of the vets I've been dealing with as they've not really dealt with the soft tissue surgery lot or oncology

I believe it's on for the next week or so each evening so I'll keep watching out

Well - having fallen asleep in GBBO after round 1 and failing to find out who got ejected I'm "off to bed" - well back to the settee and my duvet 

Sweet dreams all, see you tomorrow

PS - DL hope you wowed everyone in CDWM this evening

Afternoon All

I have been downloading and analysing our GCSE results which are top secret, cross my heart and hope to die until 0600 tomorrow 

I may however have had a glass of bubbly around 1000 

It's actually been quite nice to get into school and not be stressing about the DG.....instead I'm stressing about Mr P's parenting abilities as he has a trick of falling asleep and the DG is sneaky beaky when it comes to wound licking!

(((((((Chuggy)))))))) that sounds seriously unpleasant  really hope the ABs kick in quickly and make you feel much better shortly

Sluggie - there are quite a lot of organisations that visit, predominantly hospitals and nursing homes, but I think also other groups with their dogs to allow interaction between elderly / ill people and dogs.........if your mum was part of one of those that might be a nice half way house?

Oh and I've entered Ride London for 2015 - 3rd time lucky I hope!!

As the system wouldn't let me defer I emailed my deferral but haven't heard anything so thought I'd better enter again anyway and if necessary sort it all out later!

Oops - pardon me 

It's what you get for going back to the laptop which has been sitting dormant all weekend!!

I am working from home..........again...........and it is cold and grey and windy outside...........looks like summer's over and autumn is making itself felt already 

Looking forward to seeing / hearing about the wedding Noggs

Sluggy - sounds like the Dragon has some useful insider info worth trying  It's what I love about this place - so much diverse knowledge and experience freely shared

Right - need to crack on with work - SLT are being demanding already and annoying me and I am determined this year to try so hard to work to my best interests not necessarily the school's if there's a divergence but that does mean cracking on when I'm supposed to!!

ROFL Tubs at your flashing at the neighbours and at the description of your potential dressage test..... 

I am rather curious now though as to the colour / style of your jods if they clash with tweed as I've never seen anything other than black or beige 

The DG is on his back on the settee with his nose up Sharkey's ass..........just as well I've taken his lampshade off or it could all have gone horribly wrong!!

Hooray for Cush' forever home day

I am bored working........even with the Euro athletics on in the background........keep telling myself that the more I get done now the better.......but it's not really working!

Well done cheesy

Glad to see you can take the positives of what is still a great achievement even with the DNF and of course you live to fight another day

As some wise saying goes "failing to finish is only a failure if you fail to learn from it"

Gosh - that was profound even for a Sunday! 

Well done Tubbs and Meg - your life does sound fun with all these hosses and dogs and cats floating around.........I do wish the IoM was closer as I would then descend on you to visit them all !!!  

Just changed the DG's wound dressing and on the whole it is looking pretty good so far, fingers crossed, touch wood!  He is also still a bit bouncy today so need to be quite strict with him and not let him tatt around too much

Yums wrote (see)

(((Podds))) did one of the dogs and Mr p gang up on you?

Not the DG and Mr P - rather the DG and Sharkey........yes I know, outwitted by a pair of greyhounds..........  

I am soooooooooooo bored...........this stay at home malarkey is well over-rated.......

.......someone remind me of that please though when I'm moaning about work hours!!
