Definitely feeling chilly in here today. Mind you I only have a pitiful heater which doesn't achieve much when you have to have the door wide open onto an unheated corridor (and barely heated museum).
Still off to the doctors this afternoon so hopefully they can give me something to restore my vigour (watch out world). Here's hoping I don't catch anything while I'm there.
Just watching one child systematically colour in *every* sheet I had left out for visitors today (I don't have an office so I am trying to work from the corner of the room while keeping it open for visitors to come and do a few activities). Why it is that other children refuse to colour on a sheet of paper if someone else has so much as drawn a single line? Its so wasteful and really winds me up that parents seem to have no concept of how annoying it is (especially when they then leave the art work behind: what happened to forcing grandparents to put it on fridge doors?) Oh for a budget, and financial support to be able to afford to waste and then recycle all this paper.
Gosh I do sound such a grump. I think its because there's no plants in this room. I wanted to bring an aloe vera (after all doesn't need watering, doesn't mind /too/ much if bits get snapped off) but I honestly think the room is currently too cold for one. Maybe I'll start a thread and see what plants you might think suitable...
