Fee's electricity is going off from 9:30 this morning so she's moving to the playbarn, but needs us to go with her to keep an eye on the children with her. She's outnumbered.

Got my essay in with a couple of days to spare and 700 words over minimum, and thank goodness that's all over.

Car got rear-ended yesterday afternoon, minor damage to car and a slightly sore shoulder for me.

Pulled a muscle, ouch, when they tell you to properly warm up...
Going to Poitiers tomorrow, Capes exam on thursday and Friday. feeling ok about it, as with all National exams there are so little chances of making it that I won't even sweat it.
ordered a new pair of running shoes, it's nice to see how beat up the others are, some work had been done!

Wouldn't have a lot to write about recently!

No, seriously, it has to be something we've covered on the course, for the factual one. I could write about weight loss for the fiction though.

He was soooo spotty! And apparently we didn't see him at his worst. It didn't seem to bother him much, apart from thrashing about in the night - we think it was the itching.

Have to do an essay in one week for my Wednesday Creative Writing class and don't have the foggiest idea what to write. I've also signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo with the intention of editing the first draft I did in November. I need to add at least 10k words, and sort out the order of the scenes.

Think not. Do.

Just back from a weekend away. Hotel room with a sea view (well, a Severn Estuary view, complete with Wales opposite when the mist cleared). Sunshine. Visited a National Trust house, Tyntesfield, home of the Guano King. and tired myself out going up and down the stairs. Must get back to the gym.

William is spotty but no longer infectious so he's gone back to playgroup. We don't think he even noticed he was ill. The bridge is now open to local traffic with care, so we have our spare car back. And one of my flash fictions is being published by Garden Gnome Publications in their e-zine. No money, but I am entered for their monthly competition, and could win a prize of $5.

It could be longer, up to 3 months in some cases. At least by the time he gets better the bridge should be open again.

After they picked up the children and went home, the 3 yr old threw out spots - chicken pox has struck. Ah well, he might as well get it over with, and he should be better by their short break in a couple of weeks.

The bridge near my daughter's was to be closed for a week over half term, but they found it was in much worse condition than anticipated so it's to be closed for another two weeks. They have made provision for people to cross on foot now, so we don't have to trek across the fields, and most people have taken to parking a car on each side. Today Richard is delivering the spare car to be parked on our side, having collected the three-year-old from playgroup. I get to try out the diversion through the hills.

Bah!

Actually we have had a few glimpses of the sun here, which we really need to dry up all the flooding. When we went down South we had to avoid certain roads, and on others there were temporary traffic lights because half of the road was flooded. What surprised me was that the water was perfectly clear, not muddy at all.

Think not. Do.

Apparently the UV light reacts with ingredients in the detergent to produce the outside-dried smell you don't get from drying indoors.

Had a srenuous time down south - saw Richard's Dad, took him to a hospital appointment, met up with our son Andy plus one of Fee's friends for lunch the second day. Drove over one section of road eight times in three days, drove over 500 miles all told. Baby was charming, William - not so much.

I've been given more medication to encourage insulin production, so now I have to check my glucose levels myself. Levels still not perfect but seem to be coming down a bit.

New washing machine looks good, more sophisticated than the old one, but we have yet to try it with actual clothes in it.

I can remember one occasion in France driving like a madwoman trying to get to the ferry in time. We arrived past sailing time, but it had been delayed by bad weather in the Channel and they held it for a few more minutes and fitted our little Renault 5 in under the noses of the big lorries. Lucky we weren't stopped, because I was driving way over 90 and the weather of course was not good.

Think not. Do.

That was bad luck, specially considering how few French people stick to the speed limit.

New washing machine arriving this afternoon, thank goodness. That will teach us to compromise on a cheap one. The new one was not so cheap.

We've had a couple of power cuts, but not lasting long enough for the freezer to defrost. Also the washing machine keeps tripping the mains trip switch; we think there's a short circuit somewhere inside, so we''re going to replace it. It's never been very good, and the plastic fins in the drum broke off a while back. We're taking our washing to our daughter's to use her machine.

Think not. Do.

Thanks. She has nearly 200 now.

According to Michael the Cheese at the Llanidloes market he took 4 months to get over his attack of bronchitis, which means we still have nearly 2 months to go. Happy thought.

Left on my own with Dominic yesterday afternoon for a couple of hours. He was very grumpy. He's started on solids now, though he's only just over 4 months old, but he's always hungry, and if he doesn't have extra he gets Fee up super early in the morning, like 5 am. However when his daddy got home he was all smiles.

Think not. Do.

If it starts to bother me I can always get some external speakers. It's only noticeable with music really, so apart from a few programmes like Last Night of the Proms it won't matter much, and being as Richard is half deaf anyway, he wouldn't notice at all. Music isn't his thing.

Tv was the only thing we got, and it wasn't particularly reduced. The old one was the size of an outside lavvy and the picture was getting a bit fuzzy - all the adjustments were maxed out. We got it for nothing about 4 years ago. The only thing I notice is that the sound on the new one isn't as good. Which when you consider the thinness of the thing isn't surprising - I don't know where they can find space even to put a speaker.

Think not. Do.

Well I put on weight over Christmas, but that's not surprising as we've been feeling too ill to exercise. Today Richard took down the Christmas decorations and exhausted himself.

New tv arrived this afternoon, HD, LED. Have had to upgrade satellite subscription and change all planned recordings over to HD channels, but it does have a very nice picture, and we can actually see the edges now.

I used to be inflicted with Vick's Vapo Rub when I was young and I hated it. It didn't seem to do anything but make me reek of whatever the main ingredient is - oil of wintergreen? Something horrendously eye-wateringly strong, anyway.

Christmas is fine as long as it doesn't last from 1 December to 31 January. We managed to keep off the goodies until Christmas Eve. We've still got some, but that's because we've eaten them at a very slow rate.

Richard at long last is a lot better. Our daughter's MIL gave him something aromatic to rub on his chest and a couple of essential oils as an inhalation. That and the passage of time, I suppose. Now to get back the muscle tone we've lost.

Think not. Do.

Yes water is the cure, and I took lemon water with honey the day after for my poor stomach.

Doing butt exerices today and trying to stay warm!

Water is a wonderful hangover prevention. I had an experience - in France as it happens - which proved it.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

totally over ate at the party, there was only one dish "raclette" and the guy next to me kept filling up my glass of wine so I don't know how much I drank but fortunately I started on water only near 11pm so this morning I was half ok

Better than I was, that's all I can say.
