Good night, good night, one week to go until it's Easter. I have to teach fourteen lessons (Week A is a good week for me, particularly at the start of the week), there's no school on Friday, and Finn has no school on Thursday either. I do have a Parents' night to go to at school tomorrow night but it's just a general chat night, not a one-to-one session, they come later in the year. I have baked green cookies for morning tea tomorrow at school as it's St Patrick's Day.

We went to an Open Home with our friends today, their second, trying to convince the husband that they need to buy a house with no stairs (their current house is on three levels, with more stairs up the back to the garden and eventually up to the gate, three levels higher). He feels very unwilling to move though. His wife, my good friend, is more worried about his very crippled father coming to stay again in a few months. It was hard enough last time. She wants to get into a level house asap.

Christy brought some International students round this afternoon so they could interview me about being married for a long time, for their RE assignments! Then we added a Sister of Mercy into the mix, an old friend of mine, who came round to talk about her life as a religious! It was an interesting afternoon, but I got no work done... heh, nothing new there. Oh well. Gotta go to bed. We survived Palm Sunday with Fr Codfish and now we look ahead with slight trepidation to Easter...

Oh, and fledge is due next week! OMG isn't that exciting, an LJ baby *g*

That could be rough with the problems that are going on. Good luck!

Yeah, everyone loved my greenish cookies! I hadn't baked them my cookies before and they are a particularly nice recipe!

The fact that it is St Patrick's Day almost passed me by... perhaps I shall wear green today...

Glad you survived Palm Sunday - we did too!! Fr Codfish *g*

Did you wear green? I didn't, but I don't have many green clothes, only shades of olive and khaki and things like that.

Yeah, Palm Sunday down, just four more days of stuff to go! I'm glad you survived it as well.

-Fr Codfish *g*
Yeah, I'm not a good person *g* but he has this way of pushing out his lower lip when he's uncomfortable about something, very lugubrious. And today in class a teacher using my room said about a character in a book, that he didn't smile. One girl piped up, 'Nor does our priest!' Heh, De (the teacher) and I looked at one another and laughed, the girl is in the Samoan half of our parish!!! She forgot we have the same priest!!

I wore a green skirt... that's probably as far as my St Patrick's day celebrations will go...

Think the nickname is really funny....reminds of a saying that my parents used alot - not very complimentary to your priest I'm afraid!!

fledge's official due date is 20th!!!! This week!!!!
She wants to be the first to make the announcement and of course our f'lists overlap so I might have to bit my nails for a day or three...
Of course, being a first baby, he might be late.
