For many reasons the planned post for yesterday just didn't happen and the planned one for today won't either. Couldn't not post at all though so thought I would drop in and say Hi before I head off to work! My kids go to a private school which has both boarding and day students. I work in the girls boarding house every 2nd weekend doing a 24 hour shift from 9am Sat till 9am Sun. I generally enjoy it but must admit find the evenings and nights hard and am hoping to only do the day shift next year. For whatever reason very few girls have gone home this weekend so I have about 40 teenage girls (some in the middle of exams) to look after. It is to be a beautiful day which is when I turn off the tv and 'encourage' them to get some fresh air - exactly what I would do with my own kids!!!! I have packed 'everything but the kitchen sink' to take - a basket of ironing, my knitting, stitching and a huge bag of magazines and newspapers. I've also snuck in some chocolate in case I'm driven to needing it!!! As the time for posting SSCS is rushing towards me I am hoping to achieve quite a lot of stitching! Wish me luck! At home SH is off to tennis, HS baseball and the horsey one is at a horse show.......never a dull moment.
