stuff

In the spirit of trying not to be too grumpy, I'd better not mention work. I've got to the point where I have given up caring - otherwise the frustration just gets too much.

Other happier topics then. Mmmmmmm . . .

Well, my daughter is definitely the joker at nursery. Almost the first thing I was told upon arriving at nursery today was that she's learnt a new trick. Apparently, when she was having her nappy changed she motioned to her carer, Nat, to bend closer....

A me of two halves

Posted 7th February 2010 at 09:11 PM by StormFeather

I found my mind kind of split in two over the last couple of days.

The emotional half was indulging in erratic mood swings, sudden outbursts of tears and wallowing in the apparent hopelessness of the situation.

The rational half, well, I have a picture in my mind of someone constantly checking their watch and getting impatient for their turn (with frequent loud sighs of things like oh, come on you know the kind of thing I mean!). Its been quiet(ish), but always...

A wee bit low

Posted 5th February 2010 at 10:22 PM by StormFeather

Pet Hates, and Bug Bears

Posted 3rd February 2010 at 11:04 PM by StormFeather

(No offense to Ursa!)

I have had ample opportunities over the last few days to confront my pet hates, most of them involving drivers and their abilities, or lack of, on the roads.

Some of them are:
  • Please indicate - or at least, don't get angry at me when I can't read your mind and your road positioning means that you were apparently going in the other direction.
  • When visability is poor, due to fog, rain or snow, USE YOUR LIGHTS
  • MOBILE PHONES & DRIVING
