At 5pm tonight we all watched Jack on the Television, he had been selected to be interviewed by Sky News at Warrington Collegiate today in response to the proposed cuts in student`s EMA payments, Jack believes that EMA allocation should not be based on parents income (he doesn`t receive it) but that students should receive travel and equipment resources, currently he relies on a part time job for his funding, and he came across as articulate and confident...so proud of my little guy.....look.....

I had a little accident this morning involving a Blackberry and a bath...you can pretty much guess the rest...its currently drying out on the radiator...luckily I got the back off and the battery and sim out straight away before too much damage could be done, I know it still works because I sneaked a peek about an hour ago and to my amazement its okay, a little water damage to the screen but considering it had a good soaking I am impressed with Blackberry technology!!!

So it is Wednesday and we are halfway through the week and I am six classes down three to go, but I am bone weary tired, don`t get me wrong I have had a fabulous week: I have met some wonderful new learners, caught up with some familiar faces and managed to successfully teach all the lessons I had planned...which is always a bonus but I am so tired I am planning on hitting the quilt in pure indulgence with a glass of wine and a box of chocolates and my blackberry close to hand so I can text the kids should I need anything...obviously they will stay up because to them an 8pm bedtime means punishment!!!

...My bags are backed and I am ready to go, I found "Work Clothes" under a pile of jeans and jumpers, my paperwork is all ready and my timetable printed out so I don`t meet myself coming backwards this week...Back to work...only for five weeks then I have two weeks off, I love my job, and I have also managed to sneak in a day off a week too so I am only working Monday to Thursday until my demo's start again.

...and I want to say wow I got that Friday feeling but all I can think of is I only have two days then I am back at work...I love my job don't get me wrong, really love it, but I have had FOUR weeks off work and I have so got used to being at home, I say being at home what I really mean is shopping, and I want to decorate my hallway apple green and work some magic on the rest of my house...well actually I don`t, I want Laurence Llewelyn Bowen and his team to come and work some magic and make my house beautiful and colourful instead of beige and boring whilst I am at work and while he is inside I want Alan Titchmarsh and his gang to come and work the outside while Trinny and Susannah are clearing out and re-organising my wardrobe and Jamie is cooking me enough 30 minute meals to last me a lifetime... don't want much do I!!! But just how weird would that be if all those makeover marvels were there to greet you with their bubbliness when you came home from work and all you wanted was a cup of coffee and a cigarette!!!

Well Hallway to be precise but you get my drift...spent the day shopping for the house today and got myself some cracking little bargains including this gorgeous chandelier style lampshade which sparkles beautifully...

Two nights of chronic insomnia are finally taking their toll, I could fall asleep standing up right at this moment yet if I go to bed you can bet your bottom Dollar....Or last quid...that I will lay there tossing and turning listening to the noises of the night...mainly cats and dogs where I live...willing sleep to come only when it does to be disturbed by my insanely loud Blackberry alarm, that not only wakes me but half of Warrington, and thinking and feeling that I certainly didn`t get in my eight hours!!!

...Had a "Snow Day" today, it was this time last year that the country stood still for a week...remember...So it was slightly amusing this morning to wake up and find someone had very gently sieved snow over Warrington...what was funny was waking Harry up telling him it had snowed and then listening to his reaction when looking out the window...(not happy)... obviously he too was anticipating a snow day...despite that all my little guys looked so smart and happy this morning...albeit a little early....but they seemed quite happy to pose for me...
