Yay! Back with my own lappy!

Like my dear friend Sal, I am back in the land of my own laptop which is lovely news for me.

I had an unexpectedly good shop tonight, as is always the way. I just popped to the Trafford Centre to get my Dad a birthday present, and ended up in Mandolin, as over the weekend I had rearranged my wardrobe into seasons rather than colours (I realise I am coming across as boring as well as anal here) and realised that i don't have many short sleeved tops for the summer. I found four really nice tops in the sale, one black, one red, one pink and one brown, that will go with loads of stuff, and then I spotted a gorgeous cream jacket that will go really well with a black and cream skirt I bought in a sale. My niece is being christened in July and M and I area godparents along with Viv's boyfriend's sister L and her husband. L is very beautiful, a bit like Kelly Brook and also a bit bitchy (but with a smile on her face) so the issue of what to wear has been at the forefront. I got a wonderful dress in Monsoon over half term which I love and looks lovely, but shows A LOT of cleavage, which is not something I am ever adverse to, but is not always great on an altar at a Catholic Church. There are ways of covering it up (pashminas etc), but I'm still not sure. The other option is this skirt, but I really would need a jacket, anyway, I bought it, and it was VERRAH expensive (for me) but I like it and it's flattering so what the heck. If I'd deliberately gone out to get a jacket, it would never have been there.

Sugar Honey Iced Tea

God I had the most dreadful thing happen today.

We had our class assembly today (went exceptionally well) and about half an hour later, one of the little girls in our class complained of a tummy ache, so I sent her to the toilet. Then she began to cry so I called her over to me and she climbed on my knee. Her mum works in the nursery so I told her I would take her over to her mum as she seemed so ill - then I tried to get her to stand so I could take her. All of a sudden she began to wail and moan and went completely floppy and a ghastly shade of white/yellow/grey/green. I had a parent helper with me who is a nurse and she said"I think she's really not well", so we lay her down and S took her pulse and told me to call an ambulance. I had already sent one of the kids for a first aider and the parent helper next door for her mum, so I ran to the office and told them to call 999. I got back to class and sent the other children next door and then her mum arrived, and the Head. The wait for the ambulance seemed to take forever, her mum and the nurse were excellent. Eventually the paramedics arrived and took over, they took her to hospital.

What a nightmare. I had a good cry after that because I was scared shitless, I really thought that she would die in front of me.

It turns out that she has quite a minor thing, and is ok - her mum brought her back to see me and gave me some chocolates, but my God I was scared.

Did ya miss me?

I've been absent due to not having my own laptop and I'm a bit wary that M might find my blog because I'm using his, but what the heck. Sweetie, if you are reading this, then maybe go now, because this is my private place, okay? Love you.

Got my period again today after getting unneccesarily over-excited because I had got to day 28, after two 23 day cycles. I kept thinking all day today; "If I get through today..." and it held off until 5.30pm. I hate it when my body conspires against me. I do feel very mardy, because I really did think that this might be it. And it REALLY hurts.

Life has been okay though generally. Had a lovely half term, went to Centreparcs with all our friends, and then had a camping weekend with L and D who are great. Work is fine, friends are fine, family is fine, I absolutely do not have any complaints about anything. Apart from not being pregnant of course. (I think I might take a trip to the Doc once school has finished)
