Morning all. 

Whatever our worries and troubles, today is one that is more appropriate to think of the greater struggles.

I shall be inviting my classes to take part in a minutes silence. A minutes thinking.

His lordship is working late and the dog is already sulking despite the visit to the garage with ALL the smells (dropped the car off for an MOT at a station that must feed 30 of so stray cats) and a long walk home.

I need to go shopping for essential ingredients to fill the fridge.Why aren't the neighbours children old enough to run errands??

Keep warm everyone! Inside the house is10'C and falling.

Only if you like indoor shopping malls, full of people who regard shopping as a leisure experience.

See original post

 Set off the fire alarm twice if you're being taken against your own will! I wish anyone who tries to go near that place the very best of luck. For me I would rather remove my eyeballs with a spoon.

A special spoon. 

With jagged edges and liberal dosing of TCP.

We go twice a year: for Christmas gifts you can't get online (split up with our lists meet back by the car in half an hour. If you don't return in an hour the other one is allowed to get in and drive off without you. DO NOT re-enter the building once you have exited).

The other time is to get his lordship shirts for work. I don't know why a) he doesn't get them on line given his hatred of shopping b) I have to go with him

Pdoc: Oooh get us being all posh having elite amongst our mist! You'll be having us scrubbing the muck under our nails next.

Wait... I'm anti Brexit too. Should we be using napkins?

With the job; it is a catastrophic mess. Potentially someone is going to be loosing face. But more importantly I'm now in limbo and checking out job adverts.

Three organisations are meant to be funding the education team for a project that started in September.

A fourth is supporting the project.

Number four has had the one chap leave us and from what we can gather all other staff involved in the project are being made redundant (looks like he left at the best time!)

Number three is awol and not responding to messages or cheques

Number two is unable to release the cash

Number one is making unrealistic demands and then not coughing up what they've promised meaning....

You can work out how it is going. There are other things happening too but in short MAY DAY MAY DAY MAY DAY

Evening all. Feeling as though someone has unplugged me and let my batteries drain down. I think the cold museum, cold house, germ infested children is brewing something.

I got some interesting news of my own this afternoon just before I left work. Things are happening as I predicted and bricks on the jenga pile that is my "exciting new project" starting to become loose. I forsee the jumping of ships ahead.

Morning all.

Slashing heavily outside. I have to say I wasn't expecting to see this uncertainty when I got up. Thank goodness I have 60 children to distract me.

It's going to get interesting everyone.

Evening all. 

Today was busy. But no snow yet.

Afternoon dog walks are now ending in total darkness. It amazes me the amount of people CYCLING on the path wearing black on top of black with not so much as a reflector that shout at you when you don't move out the way. It's bad enough the dog walkers out there with no torches (how do you tell where to scoop the poop? By feel??) Poor Reggie must think me so over protective!

Snow warnings here. To be honest I was expecting a heavy fall yesterday it got so heavy with cloud.

Still it'll make the school trips (90 children today) more exciting if it does snow! I've only had the one school cancel, one more turn up and leave shortly after.

Six weeks til Christmas? Oh dear. I'm not in the least bit organised!
