I've been watching Homeland. What a brilliant series. Stunning and challenging. We have enjoyed it immensely. Do watch it!

I am slowly getting ON TOP OF THINGS. I have made a Term Two roll book. I have started reading my emails. I have sorted half the papers in my office. I have paid a lot of bills. Life goes on. At least I have arms and legs. If you're not sure what that means, watch this five minute clip I've been using in my classroom this week, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOzsjEmjjHs&list=FLA5t2I7VcVAXs40W1lBr3rg&index=2&feature=plpp_video

Things to adjust to if you have a kitten in the house:
never walk without assuming it will be under your feet
never trail a cord or sash
do not push fish in the sink
do not turn away as you close the fridge - next time you open it you might find the kitten
do not make sudden movements in the bed
always make bag-packing look boring
just give him the sock
and put the lid down on the toilet

It is pouring with rain tonight. I am looking forward to getting into bed and pulling up the covers.

I already had roughly those rules from fledge and half remembered them from when we had a kitten here, which is quite a long time ago. Add the washing machine to the rule about the fridge door... I imagine they were even harder to follow with one arm out of action.

Glad you're getting back to normal!

Washing machine! OMG!
-Glad you're getting back to normal!
Am I normal? Heh, probably never was LOL! But I am slowly crawling back to a 'usual' life! And trying to catch up on paperwork! And the 2500 emails... aaaah!

Every time I read about you writing, I am insanely jealous, which is good, it makes me want to get back into it every break I get! Keep on writing!

At the moment most of my writing-related activities seem to be rewrites, proofreading, formatting, designing cover art, etc. I have this weird habit of keeping actual writing as a treat, to indulge in when I've finished the 'tasks' and the tasks seem to be thick on the ground just now. Doing the Big Bang fanfic gave me my 'fix' to be going on with... But I'll have to do more writing soon - so hopefully that will spur me on to get through the other stuff!

I know we share the pure pleasure writing can bring!

Kittens are cute*g* Hope things are better with your arm now and glad to hear you seem to be getting on top of things.

Thanks so much. It's weird, at school it's like nothing happened now, even though I'm scrabbling to catch up still! But at least I can write and drive and pick things up! I'm lucky. I just have a lot of paperwork to do now! Backtracking LOL!
