Thanks for signing in below - and again, a major apology to my dear friend Poppy for initially missing her off the post. Mwah, darling.
Working like a ******* this week, and still i don't seem to have enough time. Really loving work at the mo, I feel motivated and effective despite all that. There's something lovely about education and little ones - they can be like little sponges.
Had a visit to the in-laws this weekend which can be a bit of a trial - they're not unpleasant or anything, we just have nothing in common, and to be frank, if you looked at thier house, not even my child - ie thier grandchild. Despite school photos being sent and (on the approximately 10-12 occasions he's seen him in HIS WHOLE LIFE) M's dad taking photos with his camera, there is not evidence of M, me, or our son in that house. M's sisters - check. m's nephew- check. Us? Personae non grata. So, bored, and slightly cross about the waste of a precious weekend day. My SIL is lovely though.
Lost all but 2lb of the Christmas half stone, but not had a great week this week - not readful but not great, so will be happy to sts.
Finished the John Peel autobiography last night - it's a really great book- he wrote the first half and his wife completed it after his death. he's not someone who I ever really listened to apart from occasional enjoyable forays into Home Truths on Radio 4, but someone who has been in the background of my life. I did enjoy it though.
