HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all! 

 

To anyone who thought my new job was just messing about with fire engines - I spent all last night researching breast feeding for work! Trying to make sure we're as family friendly as possible!

Just read Mikes latest post. Good job it takes a lot to put me off my breakfast! 

 

Have a great week all, lovely and sunny here KEF - feel free to share it!

Morning all! 

A day off! (Just done 7 days in a row) and I'm off... shoe shopping for friends weddings. Ugh   I can rarely think of anytging worse!

Hopefully there will be some toy stores nearby that I can wander into for more work related inspiration. Although I've so much on my to do list now I really ought start completing some things!

I've been putting seeds onto a piece of kitchen roll and the cutting around them. Do you think that'll be okay as a method of saving tomato seeds?

Thanks Dove! I'll keep that hidden in case he changed his mind on things or takes too long!

Cheers all - I know it's not going to be easy, in fact the more I get people talking to me the more I realise just what a poor situation we're in, and I fully expect to go grey (if only from dust in the darkest depths of the archives as I go exploring for things I can use for hands on sessions). But I've a teacher whose going to do a blind visit for me and tell me what she would want to see changing, a to do list that's now well over 5 pages long, and - after a trip around Amazon - some history books in the post to make sure I know my stuff!

Morning all! Seventh day of work in a row today - looking forward to having tomorrow off so that I can... sit at home sorting paperwork! The boss is away for the weekend and I'm looking after his hamster - this scares me more than having his keys to the building! 

I've been waiting for the official release to come out but it seems the director is rather slow with the paperwork so I'll put you out of your misery and let you know now. 

I'm taking over "events and education" at the museum I always chatter about on an initial one month paid expenses only then a six month contract. There's huge potential to expand what we can offer schools in regards to tours as well as visiting members of the public and I'm really looking forward to moving forward with it all. It's a large pay drop for me and I have a very strict target to hit just to ensure my wages are covered along with heaps of stress being flung at me but I can't tell you how wonderful it is to WANT to get up to go to work!

But don't get too excited - I'm also the one who has to clean the toilets and wipe snot off the display cabinets so its not all grandeur and asking teachers what they want from us. 

 

Had Hefty is learning Dove. I'm spotting what I think is hedgehog poo in the garden (nearly photographed it to put up here) but haven't seenany more hoggies yet. I'm waiting for my darling other half to start measuring up wood for the chicken wood to see if I can convince a little over supply so he's some excess wood to make a hog home.

Sat here tapping away on the computer still working (if I could work 24 hours a day it wouldn't be enough to clear my to do list) and I suddenly thought - is OL camping at carfest? I hope she packed her flippers.
