Anyone else?

I'm in the city after going to a memorial service for the most wonderful family member who passed away a couple of weeks ago.

I'm also waiting to see if I got a job I interviewed for a week and a half ago (and yes, they have been in touch and they haven't made their mind up yet).

Please cheer me up!!!

I also haz TV -- what the ^&*% is it with Jennifer Hawkins' upper lip? It doesn't move when she speaks... tongue.gif

It's Friday, the kids are back at school, this is the bar!  

It's been a good and bad week - DS loved going back to school, his teacher seems lovely, he's with his friends.  Bad is medical specialists suck, DS is being bullied, and my work has been hard this week.  

But DH has just made dinner so that's nice.

How was your week?

What a sad affair for you the memorial service.

Me. We came down to the beach after work today. So tough day at work. DH had a tougher day with one of our tenants.

DS had the best day. They had to put down their preferences for interschool sport, and his first preference was sailing. He had his first day having sailing lessons today. Just brilliant.

I have had one glass of wine, and am waiting for DH to pour me another

Let's just keep bumping this one.

My week's been weird.  And it's ending now with DH trying to do clever stuff with DD's cot...because she learned to climb out of it today.  First I knew was the screams...

Should I be proud, scared, or both?

Yes it was -- he was one of the loveliest people I have ever met sad.gif

Sailing is good.

Am about to pour myself another wine -- on my own tonight as DP is working.

Apparently we can lower the base so that the sides are higher (hopefully too high for her to climb again).

Ahhhh ok. We have had the base lowered for a while now, but my fear is him getting out and then... And then I foresee no sleep for mummy.

Damnation, the combination ate my post!

First week back at school. 3 day week. Completely SHATTERED.  Thank goodness it will only ever be a 3 day week.

390 new names, plus staff to learn as quickly as possible.  Dealing with the internal squirmies that come with being an atheist in the catholic system.  Have determined is probably best just to take a spoon of cement and deal with feeling hypocritical saying the midday prayer for the sake of the children.

Fish and chips for dinner.

Drinking wine after making dinner for DH and BIL. DH is washing up then some chocolate ice cream - woo!

Gentle Kitteh, that sucks about the memorial sad.gif Losing someone is never easy.

JRA, sailing sounds awesome! I think our coolest school sport was bowling, so things have clearly changed.

Ange, scary. I went in the other morning to a massive thump and a cry, because DS has decided that face planting into things is fun, buthe misjudged and smacked his head. Climbing tout is far scarier though. Sometimes I really miss the days when you could pop them down somewhere and they couldn't move . . .

Mercurial, the bullying sucks sad.gif I find it so sad to think it starts so early in schools.

Soprano Cat, that must be a bit odd at a catholic school. How long do you find it takes you to remember all the names?

Our week has been pretty good. Had a play date with some cousins and a few other outings. DS had his first visit to the gym crèche today which was also the first time he's been with strangers, and he did brilliantly. Apparently he barely noticed I was gone - I don't know whether to be happy about it or sad he didn't miss me!

Posted 01 February 2013 - 07:20 PM

HOO, I'll have the 12 names that ill need to know for the wrong reasons down by next week, I reckon.  There's a few that have stuck because of something "different"  about the child - ethnicity, personality, flagged by the support unit for whatever reason.

Everyone else I'm hoping to have by week 5 - some will take until Easter.  I'll know their personalities before then, but some kids just don't have names that stick to my brain.

They've all been warned I'm hopeless at names, and if the giggling was anything to go by, they find it hilarious when I get muddled

I've never been game to join the bar before but I might take the plunge tonight seeing as I've had a few wines already. Anything I need to know or be aware of before posting? ph34r.gif

Ooh, DP

Hello,

Had a decent start to the week. One of the major bullies at Ray's school has left the school (hooray!), I have gotten through to the second and final interview for a job I am keen to get. Hopefully it will mean that Hubby can afford to work closer to home & I can see him more often original.gif

The weather here is wet, windy & cold. It's great for our water tanks and the grass, but the kids go a little stir crazy. Due to the hail storms today, they have both had indoor activities all day at school & pre-school. Hubby won't get home until 2am, then will probably be up about 9ish with the kids. I hope he isn't tired and grumpy when I get home.

I have to get up at 4:15am for work, I am deciding whether or not to have a JD & coke before bed.....

Heck I've posted in the bar maybe once before and decided to just go for it tonight biggrin.gif

But I think that's largely due to the combination of blergh(s) that this week has dealt up.

How has your week been?

Oh that is depressing. I was realising that it's just over 15 years since my grandma died, but she'd actually gone years before sad.gif There isn't really anything I can say except that I understand.

Wine is good!
DH away for work and DD is in bed, definitely wine and chocolate time.
Second day back at school and I'm exhausted and Yr 8 are already pushing the boundaries. On the plus side my Yr 7 selective class are awesome!
