Reciprocal Rehearsals……………

Just where does the time go, the dust barely seems to have settled on ‘Big Bad Ben’ The Nativity, and now rehearsals are in full flow for this years Christmas production – a whole year gone!!! Good news is this years could be the best one yet, granted it’s not the most politically correct production ever but it sure is funny!! ‘Away With the Manger’ a tale of two robbers, a school play and a french policeman with the dodgiest accent ever (think Allo Allo) add to that songs about morning sickness and K.I.S.S.I.N.G and you get the idea. Not too sure what class 5 thought of my rousing singing practice this morning though (I’m tone-deaf) I can’t make my mind up if they were laughing with enjoyment or taking the p*** out of my singing. Still they left for lunch with a smile on their face.

Come college this evening I was the one the with the smile on my face, the results from last weeks mock Maths GCSE were in – I passed. 100% is not bad for a first go!!!! Well chuffed.

Not quite as blonde as I seem.

Reciprocal Numbers Next -not a chuffing clue

Bring it on!!

The Gull – able Cyclist………..Sorry!!


Killer Gull!!!

So I left Archie at home today and headed to work on Boris  – I’ve got to take advantage of the dry and frost-free days whenever they happen. Thankfully today I was more organised and remembered all of my change of clothes- I didn’t spend the day wearing  a borrowed top or even worse a day looking totally  flat chested in my sports bra. I did however spend the day longing for ‘Big Bad Ben’ (christmas production) to come to an end – the story is, just like every other year, starting to wear a bit thin now. I do wonder just how many versions of ‘The Nativity’ there are out there – we’ve done quite a few. But it’s the first time I’ve done a nativity that’s got ‘Dennis the Menace’ and ‘Horrid Henry’ it. Still, there’s a first time for everything and it will all be fine come the ‘Big Day’!

The good thing about going to work on the bike is that if you’ve had a stressful day by the  time you’ve pedaled home all the stress has gone (well apart from the day I got knocked off!!) So thankfully I was feeling all calm and collected when my front light died – oh well time to take the off-road route – a bit scary as it was getting dark but better than being unseen on the road ( although my jackets that bright its like a light). All was going well until I came across loads of gulls by the lake and I mean loads. Now those who know me well know I don’t really like birds, so pedalling through a flock of the evil things  isn’t really my idea of a good time. The evil birds clearly knew I didn’t like them so refused to budge -great. In the end I screamed as loud as I could and pedaled through – needs must when you need to get home.

A cycle and a run done

Halfway through the week tomorrow

Bring it on.
