where's the coffee...?
So, any bets on whether they will be two hours late with no phone call for the THIRD day running? Both my children are still in bed sound asleep too, and I want to join them And it's gray and miserable
But on the plus side I've lost 2lbs this week! Woohooo

Congrats crace that's great!
It's annoying yes, I have this too. Sometimes I use the time to make a cold lunch and put it in the fridge, or I get the antibac spray out while there are no kids around!
If you are a bed bug like me though you will just be thinking of the extra 10,20,30mins you could have had in bed. And yes, I know we are paid for it but I'd rather trade the money for sleep (ie 20mins sleep, rather than 20mins pay - irrational and not possible I know!!)

Crace, you have my sympathy. Are they the kind of parents who listen if you say them that you need notice if they are going to be late? The ones I had just didn't seem to listen to anything I said.
I asked yesterday, where is nannynick? I haven't seen him around since we got back online. has he left?

Sorry saltire, no he's around - he just doesn't visit us in the staff room. I saw him on several threads, and mostly at night me thinks. He's busy these days, I think!
They came "on time" only 30 mins late but I hate wondering when they will be here - Kay, am the same I would gladly take the extra 1/2 hour sleep in lieu of pay!

Morning! DH just gone out to do a job for a while, so I can stop painting! I wish I'd never suggested that since I don't have kids on a Wednesday, I'd do the painting - he's a lousey gaffer! Haven't had time to read all the posts yet, I'll pop back when I've finished and read properly. Have a nice morning!

Been a busy bunny this morning organising a party. God its mental trying to find clowns! Some look like theyve done way too much LSD in the 60's and others are just too weird looking.

You would all be so proud of me, Open morning at local preschool and I got the kiddies a goodie from the cake stall and not a thing for me. Yep, am all smug The reality is I am fed up with my post pregnancy body of 18 months ago and it's time to get my bum in gear. There!
All done for the day, Dh is flying back tonight, and I miss the trousers off him Been 5 days of peace and quiet but am ready for him to be back.

I've got a wicked cheesecake recipe, which I will now share with you! So easy, my dd has been making it for about 2 years on her own.
Packet of ginger biscuits crushed up and mixed with 2 oz butter. Stuff in bottom of loose bottomed cake tin. Mix 2 pots of marscapone with 4 oz icing sugar and zest & juice of either 2 limes or lemons. Chuck on top of biscuit base. Chill, job done! Tis fab.
