Birthday times...

Hey hey. It's birthday month on LJ, I swear there are more than at other times. Although isn't it Angela's birthday today? dani257 If you're out there and I'm right, well, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! If I"m wrong, well, just enjoy my good wishes! It doesn't show up on my profile any more... and it is another *snort* 'ex' friend's birthday today. I hope she has a really good day. And tomorrow ...it's another LJ friend's birthday ;-)  Whee!  What excitement.
Today was Valentine's Day and lots of the girls were carrying round roses from their admirers!! I was on duty down at the shops this morning before school and there was a lot of squealing and excitement!
I'm teaching about cults at the moment with my Year 13s. Today we did Jonestown, yesterday Heaven's Gate, soon we'll do the Wiccans LOL! I suspect there are a few of those out there on LJ *g* - heh, Catholicism, started out as a kind of sect-cult, now look at us. But at least we have reverence for life *g*

I had a really really really busy day today, lots of senior classes and no breaks until the end of the day, then Asher's first ever cricket practice went on until ten past five! We finally got home tired and hungry! Tomorrow is our school sports day at Newtown Park, so at least there won't be any teaching. I love those kinds of days.  I like breaks in routine. Hell, let's face it, I hate routine!

Saturday I go on a course for the day. I can't wait, it's going to be really special, I'm sure. It's a writers' course. First meeting this Saturday!! It'll be nice to do something that is just for ME for six whole hours!

SO. I hope I survive sports day, I'm on first aid duty, gate duty and wallet minding duty. Sounds like I'm old and infirm, but I am just doing what the DRS did last year. Maybe, unlike me, she didn't like sports. I might wear my M*A*S*H t-shirt!!
So. Goodnight to you all. The washing machine is whirring, the pets are fed, the children are asleep and I have a Vikram Seth book to read, Two Lives, one JC jnr gave me (he was having a book clearout!).  Take care with this day. Every day is a blessing. And birthdays are really special.

Thanks. OMG I am so excited. Just the thought of it. I spend most of my time with people here (not on the PC but in life in Wellington) trying not to think about writing because people just don't really get it!

Spending time with other writers is fantastic just because they understand where your head is, even if they don't write about the same things!!

Yeah, we had people who want to write non-fiction, short stories and even historic stuff.

Oh I hope you had a great birthday!!! I'm glad you were around to get my greetings *g*

-Cool! Hope you have fun.
I hope so too. I hope it's not a bunch of weirdos!

As for gate duty, in the end I didn't do that much first aid, no more than ten victims, I think. But a few battles at the gate *g*

I wore the MASH t-shirt. All day. And I'm trying to install my new card making disks so that I can make you a birthday greeting! Arrgh! I'm getting there slowly.

-Good for you! It's great that you're doing something for you!
It feels odd to be leaving the family to their own devices on a Saturday but I think they can look after themselves for a day! And to be going to a writing thing and not some dorky (because religion brings out the nutters) religious thing is even better *g*
