Update! And about time, too...

I can hardly believe it's so long since I last posted. I honestly haven't had more than a minute to sit here over the last few days. Everyone seems to want the computer, and I've just been flat out working and stuff. So. How are you all? I missed you. I am writing again, kind of momentary things, but working on Safe yet again. It feels ... safer somehow *g* and I'm trying to make it worth the work. Whatever, maybe I just needed a safe retreat from all the incredible learning I've had to undergo in the last few weeks.

It's fun being a head of department in some ways, knowing what everyone is doing and having the right to know that sort of thing. And people are still being kind to me *g* - we have a newer teacher than me now, replacing someone on maternity leave, and our lovely Irish computer teacher just said he was leaving too, so that's sad. He'll need to be replaced somehow next term. I really like him, so that's a pity. Some of our males are really reticent, and we only have five.

(Damn, Finn is having a breakdown - I can't even get this done!!)

*sigh* anyway here I am back again, and dinner is almost ready. I am going to focus on some writing tonight if I can, although I have to make a berry mocha trifle for my friend's daughter's 21st birthday party tomorrow night. And I want to dye my hair before the party. It's a cocktail party. I had a haircut (just a tiny trim) yesterday and came out with a straight fringe! I wish it was like that all the time.

I can't believe that bridge that fell into the water in the States. How awful. They said it was deemed structurally unsound, but then they added there are 80,000 bridges in the States that are structurally unsound, so it's not that big an issue... or it is...

And Finn is still screeching so I've gotta go... back later...
