Did I tell her? Are you kidding? A couple of years ago someone found a small, harmless, non-venomous snake outside the control room. After she found out about it she was seeing snakes everywhere for the next two weeks. Nah, sometimes ignorance is bliss.
Oi!

anyway if you saw any meeces, there will be snakes coming next to eat the peeces.

Is your cat off duty?

I've begun work on a pair of macrame baby booties. I just learned that I'm going to be a grandfather in the Spring!

congratumalations! Have you pix of the booties?

my flowering tea came today and I am enjoying the first cup. The only glass suitable was a trophy from bloke's volleyball. Anyway it is quite delicious, even if the flower didn't come up very far and some pink flowers floated to the top.

Thanks! No pics of the booties yet, but could I take a photo of the string and you could use your imagination?

Each will look a little different. Looks best in a wine glass, but the taste will remain the same even in a jelly jar.

Thanks for the pics, SS. *I'm not sure how I would feel about drinking something that had a "growie" thing in it.*

Congratulations, grandpa!


Time to make some hot chocolate. I'm a warm weather girl and I am not ready for this sudden cool down we are having.

Hmmm hot chocolate!

I drank about 3 or 4 fills of that tea - the glass must be at least 600mls. Funny I don't feel as hungry as I should this time of the day given earlier eating circumstances. Maybe this will help me with my debargearseification. Anyway it tastes really nice.

OOh - I am trying to do the superannuation - but the site it so slow - maybe it has loaded what I need - so frustrating - the new site's verification thinks all postcodes are numeric and won't accept a UK code and after several attempts to input a new member and with super slow page loads, it finally tells me that person is already in there I am growing to love super time.

booties


It is not really a growie thing in it, it is very dry and takes a while to soak up the water.

Thanks, but I doubt I'll see him/her very often. It'll be lucky if we get together 2-3 times... I'm sorry to say, but I don't find babies much fun. Interesting, but not fun. I enjoy kids after they reach about 8-10. Or 27-28.

I've already started the process by sending them the pic that I gave to ProfCrash when she announced her pregnancy...

I figured it would be hard to get together because of where you live. I have been talking to my In Laws using whatever the program is on my IPad. We set the camera up and they can talk to Lucas and his parents pretty easily. It is not perfect but it is an easy way for them to see their grandson and vice versa. I am working with my parents to do the same on their ITouch. I am trying to save enough money to get them an IPad for Christmas. I am thinking an IPad 2 would work fine.

I just had what Oprah would call and "aha moment".

When I was nine I was sent to a different primary school after two years of hell. First I had a teacher who was back teaching after a year off for having a mental breakdown, however she wasn't fully recovered and took it out on children, me being one of her favourite targets. I was called stupid on a daily basis and often wasn't allowed to have lunch, instead I had to work through lunch hour. The year after wasn't any better, the head teacher was our teacher and he was a bully. At the start of the year we were one math book behind and at the end of the year we were one and a half book ahead; I couldn't keep up with that so I was called stupid again. If we asked any questions or said we didn't understand something we were called stupid and sometimes got punished.

At my new secondary school it didn't go any better. I was the new kid, there were a lot of kids with behavioural problems. Except for maths I was behind on almost all other subjects. I was bullied by being called stupid and ugly, some of those kids regularly beat me up after school. Some teachers tried to do something about it, others told me not to tattle when I told them about the bullying and beatings.

The bullying went on in secondary because half of my class went to the same school as I did. No more beatings, luckily, and I made some friends. Not until the final year did the bullying stop.

I've gotten over it mostly, I now know I'm not stupid. I still have problems trusting strangers but I have no problems making friends. What I discovered today was that I never really had gotten over the "ugly" label. I never really looked at myself in the mirror until tonight. I walked in the utility room to go to my bedroom and looked into the mirror and my first thought was that I have a pretty face. I've always like my eyes, but I've been losing weight and today I noticed how much weight I lost in my face. I actually have nice cheekbones!

Sure, I'm still overweight but I'm not horribly ugly and unattractive as I've always thought I was.
