alive and ranting

I'm so fed up with all of the shop closures on Monday for the funeral...
...yes I appreciate that people do want to watch the state funeral as it is something historic.

But what about the people who don't want to watch it? What are they supposed to do, there will be very little opened until after 5pm and by then it will be hardly worth going out at all (especially with school in the morning).

There is also all of the health appointments that have been cancelled/postponed luckily im not one of those, but plenty of people are.

back to school

James went back to work yesterday and Evie goes back to school today now that the Christmas break is over...

...Christmas was good and Evie had loads of presents so a great time was had :)

I feel like I have lost my blogging mojo so hopefully it will come back soon :)

All is ok :)

a call form school

Yesterday morning an hour and a half after I had dropped Evie off at school, my phone started ringing and it was Evies school... heart sank (I didnt want her missing her Christmas lunch with Christmas cracker), the lady told me that it was L from the school office "and not to worry it was nothing bad" :).

It was making sure that I was still happy helping on the history off the page day, and that that morning I will go to the staff room to go through the risk assessment.

So that was all good :)

Mr J is here to stay

Since the beginning of September Mrs B has been off sick...

...the school havent been very good at giving us updates - we had to collectively bully them into giving us the last update after the half term break.

Yesterday we actually got a parentmail saying that there were staffing changes.

When I read it it said that Mrs B isnt coming back now (due to family issues) and Mr J is staying on until the end of the school year to give the kids continuity and even mentioned the dreaded SATS!

And they will be looking to recruit a new teacher for next year, I think that they will keep Mr J.

a day off sick

Over Evies birthday weekend she had a horrible croup sounding cough... didnt stop us doing birthday stuff on the Saturday though :)

As Evies cough still sounded horrible yesterday morning I kept her off school (after asking in the school facebook group if the school would be ok for her to go in with the cough).

I booked her an appointment at the doctors (just to rule out her being contagious) and it wasnt until yesterday afternoon (by then her cough was sounding chesty) her chest is clear and she is ok to go to school :).

We dont have Gym trail today either (as her last session before the holidays was on Friday) and I am going to pop into Aldi this morning to get our Christmas Dinner (main thing) :)

last session before Christmas

Yesterday was my last helping out session before Christmas (next Wednesday is the last day of term).

I did more gluing into books and stuck the class awards up on the wall of fame :) best table, star of the week and mind growthset :)

I was also asked to come in on the first Monday that they are back at school to help in their history off the page day they are doing the great fire of London.

I have already bought a black dress that I can wear :)
