catching up...

Hi team, I'll try to catch up on my flist at the weekend, it's been a marathon effort the last couple of days. Steve went away yesterday and isn't back until tomorrow night. Christy was backstage in Stage Challenge last night, so I sent Finn to a friend's house, Asher to rowing and I had Parents' Interviews from 4-8pm, where the parents and their daughters come and have an interview with you for about five minutes per teacher. At 8pm I drove into town and joined the boys at Stage Challenge in the TSB arena. It was good although Christy's school didn't win (and I thought they were brilliant). We got home with McDonalds in hand at about 11.15 pm and then Asher revealed he had two projects to assemble, due the next day. I finally got to bed at about quarter to two and got up at seven. Worked all day. Parent interviews again non stop from 4-8 then I drove down to St Pats for Asher's interviews, and this time I was the parent! I had sent Finn to another friend's house, Asher had to get himself to soccer and back, and Christy had art, clarinet and a WYD meeting... argh! One wonderful parent I was talking to at the interviews, whose daughter was going to the same meeting as Christy, realised what a time-management balancing act I was trying to do this evening and actually went and collected her from clarinet at High to take her to the meeting. Isn't that amazing? People are just so kind.

Finally I have everyone fed and in bed and I'm going there any minute. It's not midnight yet but the school shirts are still whirring round in the machine... so I'll get to your other comments and posts later *hugs you all anyway*

My cut hand has recovered, thanks. I might even take the big plaster off today. It was another really wet and windy morning and we nearly lost control of the door several times, so the caretaker is going to see what he can do. I taped a sign on the door warning people to hang onto it, but that blew away *snort* And do you know what tomorrow is? Last day of the term. I can't quite believe it. My body is so tired it thinks I am in menopause...

One more thing, one of my Ethics students is Muslim, and she brought in a Muslim speaker from her mosque today. Wow, that was BRILLIANT!!! What an enlightening talk. The girls decided Islam is pretty cool after all!! I'll tell you about it later because the washing machine has stopped. Gotta go rescue those school shirts... and sleeeeeeeep...

I used to do that! I must have been a despair to my poor parents. Memorable moments include
"I'm going to be Herod in the nativity play tomorrow and I need a costume".
"I need to produce an illustrated project about transport in the Netherlands by tomorrow."

Hee! That made me giggle.

TMI? With Kyle gone, I forget there is still a man or three on my LJ!

I think I'd have left Asher to explain why his projects weren't assembled... next time he'd let you know earlier!!

I'm so relieved about your hand - I've only just read about it (I wasn't online while we were in Portugal) and was worrying in case you hadn't got all the glass out. I hope someone can do something about the door - it sounds as though there's something wrong with the design of the hinges or something.

By the time you get this your last day of term will be over!! Have a lovely holiday and try to get some time for yourself! It will also be your birthday and as I'm confused by the times of day as usual, I shall send your e-card now, or at least when I've logged out of LJ! Have a lovely day!

Poor Asher though, he'd had to go along to Stage Challenge for hours, and stay at someone else's house for an afternoon the day before, so I felt guilty about that.

And it is indeed now the holidays. Not a moment too soon. I am sure to get some sort of a break, huh.

I think that's just over work!

It was very nice of the other parent to give Christy a ride. It's those little things that really count!
