Morning all!  Kettles on.

Oh I do hope you never ask for a guided tour at my museum. My hands are all over the place in a controlled manner carefully thought out! It's a deliberate well known method of presenting ensuring your audience keep their focus on you.

Morning all. Sewed the dogs festive stocking yesterday, he's not spoilt at all 

I was meant to be working today but work up with such achy joints that even my tail aches so decided to be sensible and call in sick as there's plenty of people in.

Does mean I miss the Sheffield lights switch on though Still best to keep in the warm and rest as I've schools in all week and need my voice! 

Trying to decide if I've enough in the cupboard to make a Christmas cake, I hadn't planned on doing so as I wasn't intending on being home today. Don't fancy going out to the supermarket for supplies.


Anyone for a bucket of tea?

Lilly: I hope the pain is settling now. I wont bombard you with the many many suggestions of things I use to keep my chronic pain from consuming me; your brain need not ache along with the rest of you.

But please do remember DON'T WAIT FOR IT TO HIT 10/10 BEFORE CALLING FOR HELP. In the nicest possible way you're going to be waiting for help to arrive AND it is so much easier to get your pain under control at a "lower level" than it is when its completely out of control.

Oh PDoc was it expected? Just before Christmas too, I don't know if it's a blessing in disguise I can't imagine spending Christmas not knowing if I had a job.

LP what have you been up too??

Just thought I'd share this with you: after a day watching racing cars I'm not sure my friend will be the most delicate of drivers home from ours so I was trying to think of a way to get an aloe vera baby safely to his wife.

Taa daa!!

 I think it looks really rather cute!

I've had to empty the vacuum cleaner three times while blitzing the house today. My Henry that I use to clean my classroom only needs to be emptied once every six months! Either Dysons are very effective or they have the smallest of dust collection points. I promise you I clean the house regularly

Oooh a full English breakfast. That sounds a great idea!

Morning all. Cold and snowy here, the dog it seems is most excited by this white stuff however doesn't understand why he's not allowed to bring it back into the house.

A day of cleaning: his lordship is having a man day out with friends to the Race of Champions. Much jealous. Since we're going out I no longer get to go to such things as the other lads girlfriends then insist on going even though they've no interest. People are so weird.

So since the snow is making me feel all festive;  when can I get the mulled wine on?

Morning all. 

Our weather station broke just in time for the weather to get interesting. Neither of my vehicles has a temp gauge in and its possibly a bit excessive to sit in my partners car just to see how cold it is.

I feel strangely lost without it!

Morning all. I hope you all had a settled night with minimal damage, I'm surprised we've any leafs left!

Panda: I find Red Bull copes well with migraines: caffeine is meant to help kill a migraine (funny since it often sets them off in the first place!) And if nothing else you're so full of sugar bouncing off the walls that you wont care...

Someone has been setting off fire works and the dog has had a complete melt down. It doesn't help that something has freaked him out so that he's now scared of the windowsill in the hallway (he's been fine with it until this weekend!) So can't settle.

Over 200 children visiting the museum this week: I've got my vitamins and disinfectant at the ready! Did I tell you I asked my boss about my holiday allowance (expiring at the end of December) ? Turns out if I'm on holiday from 1st December (I've a school in that day so wont happen!) I'd be off until the 11th January ??? Guess I really have been working hard
