HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 20/05/2015 at 07:55

Glorious sunshine today so of course its time for work. Didn't manage to get much done yesterday despite working til late so I'm hoping for an injection of motivation if anyone has any spare.

 

Have a lovely day all!

Evening all. Very odd day at work but then we expect no less these days. Just finishing off a few jobs I couldn't do in the office and now settling down to see what I've missed.

Too early for gin?

 

I SAID IS IT TOO EARLY FOR GIN????

Mrs G - congrats on your damp patches.

Morning all!  Watch out for standing water on the roads if you're travelling first thing. 

Mrs.G thanks for the pm : I'll reply after breakfast

Haven't had the television control to watch Chelsea yet: planning a quiet chat up one evening.

Chicky I hope the exams are going well: I'd rather a day with 90 sugar filled children than another exam any day.

Dove: his family are a little above an inflatable padding pool: now could I get a hot tub they'd be all for it! (Actually that sounds bliss...)

Right I'd best get the kettle on. Whose for another mug of hot stuff?

I'm going to be contacting a few places tomorrow (when work restarts) to discuss basic sign language courses that we can run to get all volunteers trained up so that they can at least welcome people and point them in the right direction of the toilets. Hopefully once I have prices I can start looking for funding. Its not looking cheap unfortunately: bit daft when learning it will open up a whole new world and avoid (for me at least) social isolation.

Like my to do list wasn't big enough as it was! Oh well. I think the personal life doesn't really need sleep.

Mrs. G you're going to have to type louder!!

 

His Lordship is inviting his family over for the bank holiday (and my 30th birthday weekend). Guess there goes the idea of spending the weekend in my pants in an inflatable paddling pool drinking cider!

Liriodendron: say what you like. Chances are I wont be able to hear you!

Unfortunately hearing aids aren't going to be of any help for me as its all terribly complicated. 

At least if I can master lip reading I will never have to worry about the shy child in the class who barely squeaks a whisper.

I'm going to try and find somewhere to learn sign language too: it'll be a handy tool for expanding what we can offer schools and visitors in the museum as well as a "useful" thing to know should things get worse.

 

Dove: a few years ago we had snow in South Yorkshire on May 23rd. I know because I spent my birthday in a blanket by the fire shivering!

 

Too late!

What kind of plants do you want to grow Sophie?

Trees from Seeds.

Anyone else a little concerned that TheSeed seems to be selling seeds to customers (and thus perhaps a company charging more than just postage costs) but has so little knowledge about their product?

Hospital appointment went.... erm. In short the specialists advice is: find a class to learn to lip read  Good job the eye test shows my sight is fantastic. 

Lovely and sunny after this mornings heavy rain so I've rushed some washing out onto the line: how can two people create so much washing? Its not like I've even got massive granny pants that might fill the machine.
