Stewart, School, Poo and Lianne


Stewart was back in hospital yesterday for some more treatment. His Specialist decided to go straight into the spine this time as all previous treatment has been a waste of time. Stewart reckoned that it was the most painful experience he's ever had to endure in his life - but hey - it seems to be working.

For the first time in a long time, he managed to walk to the local shop without the aid of a stick. I know he can't walk permanently without a stick as it would do more harm than good, but its nice on the odd occasion for him to be without it.

I even came home from work today and a beautiful cooked meal was waiting for me AND all the washing done !!

Big YAY(s) for Stewarts Specialist - YAY !!!!!


This morning was spent updating the 'profiles' of the pupils I work with. Its a boring job, but one that has to be done ... fortunately, due to the remarkable typing lessons I took in Senior School, I 'touch type' at approx 119 wpm ... and so mine were completed in nano time !!! I spent the rest of the lessons that I'd been allocated browsing blogs, UKS and 2peas !

I thought it was educational anyway !!! :)

I need to get these smilies sorted ... surely someone reading this blog knows how I can get my smilies working .... i'm bereft without them !!! :(


Poo - oh yes, my fur baby is pooing for England .... at the rate he's pooing he'll cover the whole of England before he's grown out of the 'puppy' stage ... I'm obsessed now about whether my house stinks of 'dog' or not ... My lovely lounge now homes numerous bottles and jars of Vanish, Flash, Air Freshener and Lemon fragranced wipes ... my darling boy (Gnasher not Aaron) did however manage one poo and two wees on the 'mat' thing .... so I suppose I should be grateful for small mercies :)

*insert woe is me smiley*


Lianne visited tonight ... she came to see our new addition to the family, and to 'straighten' my hair. I hate asking her to do my hair on every visit ... but she straightens it much better than my attempts with straighteners and irons .....

We also spent some time discussing our trip in February to the Card Fairy retreat - and whether or not I am going to be able to contain myself with Sir Tim being there .... I just know that I am either going to pass out on the spot as and when he speaks to me .... OR, I will pee my pants ... can't decide which is the better option yet ... but I might hold a poll nearer the time !!! :)

Weekend & The New Lodger

I had a fabulous time at the North West Crop in Golbourne yesterday. Not that I got anything done - I didn't even manage one LO !!! I was there from 9.00am - 5.00pm - and all I did was gab, laugh and have fabby time !! I tell a lie ...... I cut out some die-cuts for a baby album i've been commissioned to make, but I carried on gabbing as I was cutting, so that was ok !!!

How do I do smilies .... I can't cope without smilies - Help !!!!!!!!

I was also extremely lucky to meet in person the one and only Kirsty Wiseman. I have ALL of Kirsty's LO's in 'My faves' and I have been dying to meet her since I joined UKS and stumbled upon her work.

Not only is Kirsty gifted and talented in the world of Scrapbooking, but she has also been blessed with the gift of humbleness (is that a word ??) It was a real honour to meet her, and I hope our paths cross again in the near future .... only so that I can drain her of her knowledge and perhaps soak up some of her talent!!!!

Actually, there was that much talent in the Golbourne Scout Hut that I was really overwhelmed by it all.

I did get a 'little' shopping done as well, which also took up some time, so it wasn't all spent gabbing !

My New Fur Baby

We have a new lodger in the Bryson-Wood household. He's 6 weeks old and absolutely adorable. At the moment he is spending his time sleeping and peeing all over my beautiful shag, but hey - he's a babe !!

After much debating/arguing/laughing ...... Aaron has agreed upon the name of 'Gnasher' for our fur baby. (pic below .......... well I intend for it to be below, but we are talking about me here, and I haven't got a clue what i'm doing, so really it could end up anywhere) ...

Other than Gnasher, I don't think there's much to report upon today. School was ok although Staff room has an ant infestation .... oh, and its Stewarts 45th Birthday, which he's ignoring in the hope that it will go away ........ he glared at me when I 'happened' to mention that he's half way to 50 - Honestly, men are just soooooooooooooooo touchy !

First Hysteri-CAL post

Hmmmm I blame Debbie S (UKS) .... I was trying to comment on her blog, and I couldn't because I wasn't a certified, signed-up Blogger ... next thing I know, here I am ...

Anyway, we'll see how it goes ... not sure what I'm doing, or how I am going to do it .. but I'm here ....

Can I do smilies ? :)
