I did not know it did that.
Which proves how recently-bad I'm getting at checking out the site. That's the problem with Seasonally Induced Apathy.

19h58
The Cub, having finally learned from Mr. Tumble how to blow a windmill round, is handed a penny whistle and fills the room with happy shrieks (from the whistle) and pained moans (from her parents). :-)


Been a busy day with her.
The Cub slept in very late, pushing us to the limit on getting to the shops AND preschool on time.

Dropped her at preschool, headed for gym (I'd dressed for it at 7am to make SURE I got there) and started warm-up on the bikes. And the school phoned 12 mins 45 seconds later to say the wee girl had just been SICK so please come and collect. NOW.
I should have guessed there was a problem; The Cub didn't want her sandwich OR her breadskicks. And that's a pretty unusual event.

I got her home and she tucked down on my lap straight away, eventually sleeping for most of the afternoon. I got a few minutes in, m'self, and felt all the better.

For the Cub, two hours kip, wrapped up warm, followed by blueberries, pineapple juice and a half-slice of bread and butter followed by tinned peaches out of a jar, left her ready to go again, even though she'd been running a temperature at half-past two this afternoon.
I was worried she was going to be hyper for the evening, but she asked for pyjamas and was only a slight monster while getting ready for bed, musical interludes included.

Mother has spoken
like the first parent
giving her orders
in a firm, clear voice
though you could argue
you know it's not welcome
and you should know now
you've got no real choice

Social memory has been about 20 years for centuries.
Kids were always politer to their elders, people were always respectful of the police...

I try and avoid sites like Friends reunited. Like most people, I'm trying to avoid old school friends rather than rediscover them: it's called progress.

My sins were scarlet but my books were read. Roald Dahl

I'd love to be able to say that :-)

Well here we are.
LJ but not LJ.
But an interesting place, according to the FAQ.

Well that's me locked down to friends-only access, I believe.

[EDIT] If you'd like to friend, please get somebody we both know to introduce you. I don't mean to be unfriendly and there's certainly not that much going on around here, but I choose not to public post much and only want to share personal things with people we know or know of, if you follow.
