    Morning clickers. Dry, bright and mild here – what a strange November this is! Spent yesterday morning and into the afternoon in the Herts & Essex Minor Injuries Unit with Finn waiting to see a nurse then waiting for x-rays, then waiting to see the nurse again. He has broken a bone in his thumb and chipped another so is now taped up (very…[Read more]

    • Good morning Jenn …. :giggle: that clothes shop sounds very 50s…just like one we used to get school uniforms from! .yuk!
      Poor Finn :disappointed: he’s getting good at this broken bone lark :disappointed: Hope he’s better soon :good:
      Good luck with the day :good: :rose:

    • Morning Jenn :-) Tired me out reading all that ;-) Hope today is better all round :-)

      • Afternoon Jenn, it’s non stop in Essex by the sounds of it ;-)I hope Finn is okay and today is quieter. :-)

    Morning clickers. Sunny start here today and we are off to another part of Essex this afternoon. My niece (my sister’s daughter) is hosting a little get together as my other niece (my brothers daughter) is up from Cornwall to see her dad and introduce him to her new baby. When my brother and his wife divorced she moved to Cornwall (as far away…[Read more]

    • Have a lovely time Jenn…[whilst I get my head around the complexities of your family relationships :lol: :confused: I must be getting old :disappointed: ]
      I hope Finn’s hand/wrist improves over the day. One of my lovely Grandsons plays rugby and a little bit of me is always anxious in case he gets hurts under a scrum! :rose:

    • Have a great day, Jenn :-)

    Sorry….Lynn :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • :giggle: :rose: it’s the exhaustion Jenn :rose: I hope you get it all sorted soon, I’m sure the other teachers will make the absent ones aware :good: hope you feel better soon xx

    Morning Jane. It was lovely and the staff were so smiley and helpful. Parents evening was OK. Half were no shows so we only ended up seeing 3 of Finn’s teachers. I had especially wanted to see his maths teacher as well :disappointed: However, his science teacher was brilliant (which I hadn’t expected) and his English teacher was less so…[Read more]

    Feeling like a wrung out dishcloth today, Anne, absolutely exhausted :lol:

    Afternoon clickers. Back now from a 4 hour round trip to Aldeburgh to pick up a piece of furniture. It was an absolutely beautiful drive when we came off the motorway and A roads – the trees and hedgerows were spectacular. Stopped off on the way home at a fab little farm shop and cafe that did the most amazing breakfasts – and the place was…[Read more]

    Who the hell is Bran? :lol: :disappointed: Morning BEAN :silly:

  • Jenn posted a new activity comment 5 days, 12 hours ago

    Morning Bran – hope you are feeling better soon :rose: Michael Morpurgo is fab. War Horse is probably his most famous book and the film is guaranteed to get me blubbing every single time. I really want to see the stage version. Finn never really was into him though we tried – he much preferred Captain Underpants or the Mr Gum books, which…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. I got my dates muddled – parent’s evening is tonight :silly: which is a pain as I have developed a horrendous sore throat so won’t be firing on all cylinders :excruciating: Nice morning here but I am going back to bed for a couple of hours…going to take up a cup of tea and have a read and a doze whilst some pain killers kick…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) hope you’re feeling better soon – the teachers will get off lightly then ;-)

    • Oh dear Jenn I hope your feeling better now. You can have a good go at the teachers and blame your sore throat for your lack of niceness :giggle: On a serious note, I hope Finn has done well and you get your point across about the support he now needs :good: :rose: sending :love: &hugs for a speedy recovery.

    Morning girls :good: Not going to be horrible as I know Finn’s teachers are learning how to deal with this too but I want them to just be a bit more aware and lay off the detentions until we know how the dyslexia is affecting him. We have tried to arrange a meeting with the SENCO but she is on maternity leave – this is something I do want to…[Read more]

    • I’d be concerned that if the school has not arranged for someone to deputise, that it might say something about the importance it ascribes to the role. On the other hand, teachers are so hard-pressed nowadays that they may just feel unable to accept another role.

    • Hi Jen…The teachers are usually helpful..its not in their interest not to be, but yes, If they are being unfair they do need to be told, but make sure they are aware of the situation first…you never know ;-)

    Morning clickers. Wet start here today and set for the morning…did plan to go over the plot but it is too grim. New radiator is up and working so now we have to look for carpet – I like these finishing jobs that someone else does :lol: Parents evening tonight and I have a couple of teachers I want to speak to :angry: HAGU whateer you are…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn, a relief for you to be getting your jobs done :good: Those teachers would be quaking in their shoes if they knew what lies in store for them ;-) Have a good day whatever :-)

    • Morning Jenn :-) good news on the radiator :good: Good luck tonight – I’m wondering about your choice of emoji ;-) Hope you find the carpet you want – always a difficult one!

    • I sense a very firm mother determined to get her message across to those two teachers – and I’m sure you will.

    Morning clickers. Feeling very efficient at the minute – plumber arranged yesterday and is coming after lunch to put a new radiator in the spare bedroom, plasterer also came round to have a recce and is booked in for December (fingers crossed but means only 1 tree this year :-( ) and the British Heart Foundation have just left with the old spare…[Read more]

    Hi Hayley – hope you aren’t laid too low x

  • Jenn posted an update 1 week, 1 day ago

    Morning clickers, hope you had a good weekend. It was our 24th wedding anniversary yesterday and we had a truly awful meal out :lol: We suffered in true British fashion in relative silence (I did complain when Finn’s order came back wrong for the 2nd time) – you don’t stay married for 24 years without getting used to some degree of…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn, why did you suffer in silence? If the meal was not good send it back. :good: Don’t believe in not saying when something is wrong, not a whole song and dance about it, but I will give them a chance to put it right – correction, one chance. ;-) :lol: Good news on the getting caught up with a few jobs- I’ve a whole list. :confused:…[Read more]

      • I hate it when you’ve looked forward to a meal and it turns out cr@p Jenn. I complained about my brie and bacon baguette in Stamford on friday…..tasted like bacon that was frozen and hardly cooked….I think that what was gave me my stomach upset. Happy Belated anniversary and good news on the jobs :good:

    So sorry to hear this, cills. I do enjoy bonfire night but I completely agree with you – fireworks should be banned to the general public for ALL occasions and organised displays the only place where they can be enjoyed. Sorry you and your cats are so badly affected. Jake, true terrier that he is, isn’t really affected, he reacts the usual way…[Read more]

    OH just got back from getting quote to fix the car…£800! He’s feeling worse than he did last night, Jane :excruciating:

  • Jenn posted an update 1 week, 3 days ago

    Morning clickers. Blustery and cold here today but I have a tonne of inside jobs today so shall not worry about that. In desperate need for a bottle of red wine last night the OH drove to the local shop only to have a stag jump out on to the road as he was coming home! He just glanced it and it ran off seemingly OK but the car has a crease in…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. I survived Halloween! But I am not adulting today as I am having a day off. Absolutely dead on my feet but had great fun. Pouring down here so perfect for putting my feet up with a good book and cup of tea. HAGU :good: Pic is of our scary guardian of the sweeties.
  • Jenn posted a new activity comment 1 week, 5 days ago

    Morning Jane – fun on the cards here – well, my kind of fun. I have a date with the settee and my book and endless cups of tea. I am having a day off :lol: Have a good day :good:
