Well that was a day. Thanks for all the best wishes to child 2- suffice to say she spent the day feeling mightily relieved. Though not as relieved as Parent 1 and 2. A celebratory pizza and fizz was required and duly delivered. But that is quite enough. I remember how tricky it was when other results at other times were somewhat more challenging and the media was full of celebrating lovelies and reports of how well everyone was doing. Difficult times. Time to switch stuff off and go for beach walks. The students of course are so connected they know how everyone has done as soon they've updated their status's (status'?). Before breakfast they know how everyone has done, who's got in where and who hasn't got in anywhere. We are mere observers again.
Drivetime by the way has a lovely Facebook page but I can't be bothered to do it on my own and anyway les enfants have decreed that parents should be banned from Facebook as it is their thing; I am quite happy to oblige.
2 shows today again; films at 5 with guest Colin Farrell who stars in the remake of Total Recall then the mighty ARF. Let's blast the radio with an opening song of wonder and noise.
Have a significant and startling Friday; see you after 2&5.

    Good morning,

    Dull and dreary day here but still feels warm. Taking the girls to a music summer school for the next two days so probably won't be able to play much.

    Sal, Really lovely post. Thank you for taking the time to type it.

    Jennie, Hope you manage to deter the heron. You are the second person this month I've heard of having problems with a grass snake in a pond.

    Shona and Amelia, Glad to hear you had such a lovely time meeting our Esteemed Leader.

    Have a good day.x

    Morning!
    Absent for a while, nose to the grindstone and all that, still lurking though - but don't like to chip in unless I have time for pleasantries!

    RE #81 & #115 and the lovely imagined and real photographic pictures of trips around the UK - yes, would like to vouch for the idea wholeheatedly that who needs foreign shores when this island gives us everything in spades?
    A 'disappointing' walk on Saturday around the Oxfordshire village of Chadlington (I blame the 15 year old walk book) left me in every decreasing circles..so retired to the 'Tite inn' (as good a name for a pub as one could imagine) for a sparkling perry to revive.
    Sunday was just supposed to be a planned outing to an organic garden cum vineyard that also helps people with mental health - gardening is said to be good for the soul - and the garden and vino were indeed loverly.
    En route home, I spotted a 'Roman Villa' brown sign, so I parked, and followed it down a literal yellow brick road (!) to an amazing open air view. Foundations of a 4th C Roman Villa, nestled in a glorious wooded valley, swift flowing river alongside it..say what you like about those Romans, they knew where and how to build a house!

    I'm in early today as I have to ferry the M-in-law to be seen to (emergency vascular surgery a week ago for an embolism in the carotid artery) at 11, then have to rush back to work...

    BTW does anyone watch Doctors on BBC1 lunchtimes? My mum was the extra in the Dr's waiting room on Thursday, being kidnapped by a rival taxi company!

    Laters,
    Will now make tea and stop rambling.

    Good morning one and all - cloudy but warm, so far............

    Up early today - Mr is golfing for the first time in a while. It wasn't quite so hot last night and I managed to get more sleep than the previous night but another hour or so would have been welcome this morning! Never mind - up and at 'em!!

    JW

    Good Morning All

    #120 I think Uncle Tony has given me the elbow Pendleton as he has stopped replying to Tweets and no shout out for ages;(

    #121 Oh that is sad as he shared a name with my cousin but I only knew one song he did. San Francisco, Flowers in your Hair.

    Well, here's to a dreary, dreich Monday. Hope the weather is better where you are.

    See you over the page and I just hope Simon's sniffles have gone today.

    Schools (staff only) back tomorrow with the little children starting on Tuesday. I suspect the e-mail inbox to be busy ;(


    I mayo (see what I did there?) have to change my name on blog given the interest and knowledge of others at work, unless I tell porkies about being on the f/b DT group instead of blog?

    Hmmmm That's what I'll do then ;)

    Beautiful pics Deebs - and I've seen the rest on Fb. A wonderful pictorial journal of your time offshore.
    Agree wholeheartedly with Jennie #115 - also feel privileged to dwell within these shores. And yes, Jennie, playing music to prompt conversation. We do that a lot here. Still the best kind of evening in my humble opinion.

    As for posh Billie - I'll see your Venison and raise you Chicken Chasseur.
    :^D

    As for the Blogmeet which appears to be gathering momentum ... the person who initiated the whole thing may not be around in the blog for a while - but that shouldn't make any difference to the participantia.
    The wonderful Andy Toverson appears to have it all under control in the Fb Blogpoppets etc etc place ... so perhaps it's best to discuss the detail in there - from here on in?

    :^)
