Well, I haven't posted for a few days. I have, believe it or not, been busy... really busy... and I'm not sleeping so well, most of which I blame on our cat who had developed an intense addiction to a cat food I bought at the supermarket (The vet was closed) and tries to eat it all day and night. He tips over the bag and eats the food that trickles across the floor (it's dry food). He pursues the bag from shelf to table to sideboard. I know he will be disappointed when I give him pet shop food again. I wonder if the supermarket food has something addictive in it...

We have had our pancake Tuesday at school as usual, netting a huge collection of toiletries for needy people like those who go to the Women's Refuge or the Night Shelter. But there seems to have been a new thing every day last week. I never got to sit here than for as long as it takes to enter your Student, apparently......

Dammit I'm falling asleep even typing this and I had so much to say. Later. Long may the sleeping last! Talk to you tomorrow, after I do a long stint as a face painter at Finn's school gala! *sigh* I wish I could paint a Sam Seaborn LOL!

You clearly need sleep even more than you need LJ!! Sleep well, and come back when you're rested!
(And explain how pancake day nets toiletries because all my pancake day did was net pancakes...)

Hee! Another night strikes... I am going to bed again in a minute... on Shrove Tuesday, pancake day, we ask the girls to bring in an item of toiletries like soap or toothpaste etc and at lunchtime that day they can exchange it for a pancake with jam and cream etc. My Mercy Crew then gives the toiletries to the Women's Refuge (and the masculine soaps etc go to the men's Night Shelter). I have created a tradition at our school!

What a lovely tradition to create!

Our pancakes come either savoury (stuffed with e.g. mince and topped with cheese) or sweet with lemon juice and sugar. We had both on Pancake Tuesday. I think I've seen them with fruit and icecream at a restaurant.
