954 students so far this month by the way. I'm a bit disappointed we'll not hit one thousand!

I'm here Dove! Been one of those oh so busy days. I'm now on a late night waiting for his lordship to call for a lift home. I don't mind taking him into the big city for a night out; but it's a 30 mile round trip each time (plus it's where I work so that'll be 90 miles today just going to Sheffield!)


I've spent my evening wisely, prepped a months worth of dog meals, changed the bed sheets, dug out the bacon for tomorrow, and glanced at the ironing board... let's not get too carried away on a Friday night!


I'm wondering whether if I take the hound out for a walk around midnight he might get confused and I'll get a lay in tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't think I can trick that my body that needs it's morning mug of tea.

Oh Fidget! If I were anywhere near the A5 I'd go and hunt him if only to give him  company.


I hope the recovery company arrive soon and get him home to you quickly.


Please please remember to get anything that you're not happy with checked out at the hospital.

The things gardeners get up to!

With the flood warnings we keep getting this could be just the thing we need! Free food and a life raft!


Or.. maybe not so free. How much on one seed??

I think they are blaming pollen overload. Chicky.

 Chicky & Pat; it sounds terrifying! Asthma has always been a condition that scares me, anything else I think I could deal with.

Honey mixed with cinnamon and taken in hot water is supposed to be good too Clari.  Hope you fight it off but if not - take some sick leave and rest on someone else's time.

 Thanks Ob.


Unfortunately if I went off sick the only ones to suffer would be the schools as they would effectively be ignored until they went away. We simply have an educational team of... me. I'm not sure the others even know what I get up too much of the time!


Fortunately December is usually a quiet month so I can rest back (ha) then.

 I'll be nipping to tesco tonight so will grab some. I'm still using the vitamins you suggested last year; they've helped no end!

Clari, have a pampering "me" day on Sunday


I always has windows open in the classroom in the hope of avoiding all the germs as kids coughed and sneezed. I'm a believer in cold weather killing nasties off.


See original post

 Joyce; cold is one thing we don't need to worry about at the museum. The warmest room only got to 15'C less than two foot from the heater. I can happily claim that every evening the museum is deep chilled to kill germs.


Trouble is its also deep chilled in the day too.

Nothing to do with gardening

I drop a few dribbles of my favourite essential oils onto a handkerchief and then pop it on the radiator for a quick fix.
