Up to a startling 5'C in the house now. Puppy and I are home alone tonight: is 18:00 too early to climb into bed?

The fire service booked me today to perform a tour for students they are working with. Bit of faff going from 90 enthusiastic 5 - 7 year olds to 9 uninterested teenagers.

Lucy Worsley will be waiting for me on iplayer.

Happy birthday DD!

Hosta I'm so glad the rock has been moved. You don't know how much I have worried at times expecting a sudden radio silence as you sink beneath it. 

300 students this week; all doing Great Fire Of London. My brain aches. One more day to go!

Topbird when I realised grandfathers eyesight was getting dangerous I took to hiding his car keys and convincing him he'd misplaced them as he was insistent he was fine to drive despite

"what's the number plate of that red car?"

"what red car?" 

Cruel but I'd never have forgive him if he'd hurt someone.

Time to sleep. I forsee giant fires in bakeries and bucket chain gangs a mile long in my dreams... again.

Afternoon all! 

Three workshops one after another with no break. If anyone wants any Great Fire Of London facts I've them imbedded in my brain!

Four workshops back to back tomorrow. My poor head!

Today the scouts are learning about mechanics. I haven't yet told them I used to be a race mechanic as it's a parent helper running the session but it should be interesting!

Morning all. Very frosty outside and thus not exactly warm in the house. HOPEFULLY we'll get the go ahead on the electrics this week which means I will be able to call the plasterer to get him to come over to confirm things ready for that to happen in two months (approximately).

I've 90 students in today. I hope they are germ free because I'm getting bored of creating enough mucus to fill a small ship.

Are the snakes with you particularly aggressive Pat? I'm not sure how dangerous they are for just walking past. I don't like the idea of being bare footed near one!

Morning. Funny you mention OHs cooking Wonky; I was up all night with my stomach flaring. It's still cramping and squiffy now. If I didn't have 75 children visiting the museum today I'd build myself a nest in the bathroom and you tube the day away.

All the ingredients he uses are ones I can eat fine when I use them but it's not the first time he's tried to kill me with this dish. I don't know how or what he's doing. I think from now on I'll stick to getting him to microwave meals from the freezer if I want a night off cooking. There is enough fish pie, chilli con carne, pizza, and lasanges to feed us (if rather boringly) for a week.

Oh well; we're off to see the family this weekend so long car journey (agh) and mothers lack of understanding with regards to my dietary requirements will make it a roller coaster of fun. I'll pack a hamper and take it with me.
