Here’s some encouragement for you

more day till the long weekend. YOU CAN DO IT.

What I did today: jumped around to the 30-Day Shred, then ate two muffins and twenty-seven chocolate fingers for lunch, then caught Henry eating something suspicious from the floor six times in an hour, then got a parking ticket at the doctor’s, then got home to Timothy, ate homemade fish and chips, and made up a new couples’ dance to the Silent Witness theme tune (we rocked it).

What I thought today: how much I miss formal education, what ‘work’ means, where my sense of self comes from, how I can get Henry to eat more vegetables, what might be the best way to inspire teenage girls to feel better and be better, how I really need to vacuum much more often, and how I would’ve given that traffic warden a vicious shin-kicking if I’d caught him writing me a ticket.

I’d like to write something that is worth the writing and worth the reading. But as you can see, it’s a little crowded around here at the moment. Bear with me.

    When that drifted into my inbox I thought you’d missed out a word. Then I actually looked at the thing and saw the picture. Cute!

    Anyway, I got a parking ticket yesterday, and Emily has promised to give the PCSO a vicious shin-kicking next time she sees him riding round the schoolyard on his bicycle. So I’ll ask her to give him an extra one, on your behalf. I know he’s not the one who issued your ticket, but it will still count.


  2. Oh no, not you too!

    I don’t know why someone would think ‘Parking at the doctor’s, eh? Need some medical attention, eh? WELL CHECK THIS FINE OUT FOR SIZE’.

    But then, traffic wardens don’t have souls.


Talk to me! I'll put the kettle on.
