Strawbs it hasn't been my week, DH went away Monday morning half a hour later my computer completely crashed taking with it all my tax account I had just completed and all my curriculum policies handbook EVERYTING, carpet cleaner caught fire, problems with family.

Tuesday not so bad, PC Dr managed to salvage most of my documents but had to re format PC so Tuesday was spent reinstalling everything. Keyboard didn't like that and blew at 10 last night.

TODAY All the stress made the Lupus flair up, makes it hard for me to concentrate, had to tax the car today, all the way into town with 3 under 3, I had the wrong MOT cert!, get back to car looking for keys on the way cant find them because I had left them in the ignition, and forgot to get parking tickets and there is a traffic warden taking photos of my car!

He took one look at me and I must have looked pathetic cos he let me away with it old me i had left keys in car and helped me get kids and pushchair into car!!!!!

Can this week start again please, but nicely this time.

SHOSHAlee · 01/03/2007 20:11

Fine Strawbs slept from 8.00 -.6-00 straight through which is really unusual for me as often wake in the night. but today feeling fine. Just read that Anna Nicole Smith might have died from coplications of Lupus, nothing to do with the alcahola and drugs she was takeing of course.!


dmo · 01/03/2007 20:16

must be pick on the cm week seems we have all had a week of it
i have handed out two writen warnings this week to 2 different mindees one more and they are both out
and i am starting with this cold/flu thing
got to school this morning and one of my mindees parents was in the playground (didnt have this mindee today) and i was so mad at a incident that had happened this morning that i think i had fire coming out of my ears
mindees mum texted me later and asked if i was ok as ahe had never seen me so cross before
snd then tonight after school she brought me some flowers to cheer me up brought a tear to my eye (nearly)


StrawberrySnowflakes · 01/03/2007 20:17

princesscc · 01/03/2007 20:33

I've only been on mn for a few weeks and I have notices that some of you are such accommodating CMs! I moan that I start at 6.30am on Mondays and Fridays and you are still working at 10 o'clock at night! You are truely saints! What do these parents do that keep them away from their children for so long?


mogs0 · 01/03/2007 21:35

I was thinking the same thing!
I am supposed to start at 8am but often mindee doesn't arrive til 8.15. I couldn't imagine having to be up and ready before that time!

As much as I love my mindees, I'm really looking forward to a child-free day tomorrow!!!


StrawberrySnowflakes · 01/03/2007 22:40

my mindees mum is in nursing.
at minute tho i have her 6am-10pm, then i may only work 2-3 days, so rest of week off, but that shift is a killer although i will miss the extra cash in few weeks when shifts go normal for few weeks..hence the babysitting
