I’d been looking forward to this all week…however the S&S incident seems to have unleashed something in Sailor and I was somewhat distracted.

I’ve just done a v successful presentation at school. It was based around a role play of bad practice in Social Work. I was playing the v obnoxious Social Worker. Our tutor loved it…excpet after all the praise he said ‘and yes i was also glad to see SGT playing herself’ (rest of my year laughed along just a bit too much!!).
Except its not. C’s baby is now 4 days overdue. Not even a twinge. Induction booked by midwife for 28/09. C is v grumpy.
Another nipper classic… After watching alot of Hollyoaks and the Craig/John Paul story C’s little 6 year old nipper came out with…
‘Mummy, I might decide to be gay when I’m older’
5am fire alarm.
Anita Roddick 1942 – 2007
Acitivist, pioneer, amazing role model.
I read once her best advice ‘ don’t smoke and don’t wear high heels all the time’. I pretty much live by it.
So that was the summer of 2007…..I can’t complain…I had a v lovely time and as advised by the cards my ‘childlike innocence’ was v much regained with a little help from some small children and friends with imagination.
I think this summer has been a learning curve maybe even steeper than the last academic year and full of the lessons we all find it so very hard to learn….these would include…
1. The best things in life are free. They are I tell you! (these include playing swingball with 10 years olds in full agreement that its the best anger management ever!!)
2. If you let someone treat you like crap once then they WILL do it again. REPEATEDLY.
3. If you scrape together the courage to remove this person from your life then you will feel 100% better about yourself than you thought this person could let you.
4. Life is full of surprises..and by that I mean people…yes this is all getting a bit cryptic so maybe i’ll write about my love life properly soon.
Until next time….
