Morning all.  Just nipping in to wish you all a lovely day. I'll be working so please save some chocolate for me! 

I nearly took a photo of my truck last night for you: kegs for 200 pints of real beer, 50 pies, tins of mushy peas, cakes to feed half of Sheffield, cans of pop to fill a swimming pool... now to hope we can sell them all!

Dove - a poor taxi driver was pushed by a speeding motorist who forgot that roundabouts also applied to him into our building on Sunday morning. He struck the grade two listed building just 15 yards from where the same thing happened a few months ago. He was lucky not to have flipped the car truth it told.

This is the 5th such incident in five years and unsurprisingly the education team are going to be drafting some letters to the council, Look North, and anyone else who will listen as so far the council have shown no interest (waiting until a child is killed perhaps?) As the roundabout is awful (and driving standards are shocking!)

Morning all. Very windy here : surveyed some of the damage but decided to come back to bed instead. His lordship and dog both still snoring away. 

Hoping we've not had any more incidents at work: the car through the door on Sunday is more than enough for this week thank you.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Morning all.  Hope the meeting goes well Dove.

The pond (which we put in last January) is FULL of frogs! There was a bucket full of spawn but some has sunk deeper into the pond I think so not visible now. Even though the pond isn't finished as far as we're concerned its cool to see wildlife enjoying it!

Any one for a cup of tea?

I'm trying to explore the world of sensory toys and gadets. The museum gets so many visitors young and old with various quirks and I can fully understand such a loud big place with ugly mug mannequins could be quite scary. It would be nice to be able to have my classroom as a very calming area visitors (both from schools and not) could retreat too if some chill out time might be wanted. Better lighting and calming distractions like bubble tubes are hardly pushing the boat out!

Of course money is as ever non existent which might be a problem! Perhaps I ought be googling how to rob a bank.

Hostafan you're not alone.

Is it just me or now we've got hundreds of channels the quality of the programmes are worse? Yes admittedly I'm 29 and its possible that when we could only get four channels all I was interested in was Thomas the Tank Engine but still...

Runnybeak - that sounds an awfully sensible suggestion!

Home alone tonight it seems. Partner is off out with friends til late and Reggie has taken himself to sit on the landing about as far away from me as he can get. Charming.

Is it too early to think about putting on my (oh so stylish) jim jams and climbing in to bed? (I know: for a 29 year old I am so rock and roll).
