  1. Happy ?

    I didn’t really get into The Good Place (that’s the Ted Danson thing, yeah?) i find as i I age I watch less and less tv.
  2. Happy ?

    I’ve just started watching this (up to episode 4). Really enjoying it. Loved Chris Meloni since Oz but he’s FANTASTIC here.

  14. Brexit Club - UK Politics

    It's not exactly a win. I doubt she called the election expecting a hung parliament and a pact with the DUP. So Labour haven't actually been destroyed for a generation blah blah blah as we've been told would happen. May should fuck off and go back to terrorising gelflng.
  15. Brexit Club - UK Politics

    Well, that was unexpected.
  16. What's going on with you?

    Big hug, Tigger, big hug.
  17. What's going on with you?

    Well, she has chemo on Monday so it may buy her a bit more time. We'll just have to see.

    I get loads like that. Many begin - Dear Costumer. I mean, I have my Wonder Woman leggings and all that, but I wouldn't class myself as a costumer. I just dabble with costume! ;-)
  19. What's going on with you?

    Our dog is dying. She has lymphoma and the vet gives her 6-12 months with chemo. So it will probably be less than that. She's an absolute idiot, but you couldn't ask for a nicer personality. She loves the child as if she were her own and despite constant rebuffing considers the cats her new best friends. She's the softest, daftest thing you could ever meet. She's just made friends with an old black Labrador next door. She's only about 6 and it's just awfully unfair. Plus we only lost the other dog before Christmas so within a year we'll have said goodbye to both. I'm very sad right now.
  20. What's going on with you?

    I still think of you as that picture Charlie posted with the long hair and the rock band posters on the wall ;-) Max is such a cutie. He looks very happy, too. I've got a full on banshee living in my house.
  21. What's going on with you?

    This is getting too miserable. More pictures of Max.its the only solution.
  22. What's going on with you?

    Academies are very concerning indeed. Many are getting rid of experienced (i.e. Expensive) teachers in favour of unqualified (i.e. Cheap) non trained teachers. They have no time for children who struggle in a mainstream setting and wash their hands of them. They enforce petty rules seemingly to promote discipline but are really just constant paper exercises to "show innovation". They don't teach to the national curriculum and can have whatever weirdo who is putting money in push their own agenda onto students under the guise of education. I am angrier about them now I have a child who will eventually attend one than I was when they were created and I was pretty fucking angry then.
  23. What's going on with you?

    They are an academy now, as of April 1st (yes, I know.). Say goodbye to non-Academy schools. They're not going to be a thing. It's happening at a friends (primary) school. They're being asked to jump before they're pushed.
  24. What's going on with you?

    Nothing very exciting. I won't know until July if my contract will be extended so just hanging in there tryin to be useful. There's loads of boring stuff going on about the school we are based at (but are not really part of) becoming an academy (ho hum). But that doesn't apply to us. We're still waiting on a report wether we can expand etc but we are getting some new kids who are (on paper) too dangerous for our set up so I would think if hats how it's going we need new premises etc but tbh I've been very house focussed, as we've been in the new place for 2 weeks now and it's all been chaos but great. If I remember I'll post some pictures when small shouty one has gone to bed.
  25. What's going on with you?

    Hmmm. Maybe if it makes Kevin Bacon appear in your shower. Otherwise no thanks.
