What a week!
Wednesday found me and HB in front of an appeal board trying to get small son into the same school as the big one, talk about intimidating surroundings - they were held in one of the really old builings round here, in the wood panelled former study, at a big old table, with the three members of the appeal panel sat one side and us on the other. Thankfully I had prepared fully so I knew exactly what I was going to say, and had all my arguements thought out. Actually they were nice, but so much rests on the decision, that if I hadn't prepared as much as I did then I think I would have forgotten to say something that I thought was important and kicked myself afterwards. As it was we have done all that we can, just got to wait for the results :-/
The headache that I had rumbling around since Wednesday, finally snuck up and got me on Friday morning, and had turned into a full blown migraine, with all the usual side effects thrown in as an added bonus, lovely!! Fortunately I don't get them that often these days, so I'm keeping everything crossed that this is a one off and not a return to the bad old days when I used to get a couple a month! HB had to come home and take the kids, as I couldn't see straight so I stayed in the dark and slept it off, finally surfacing at just gone 5. Surprisingly I slept well last night, and we are off to a friends son's party this afternoon... good job my head is OK, as I suspect it is going to be a noisy one :-D
The theme is pirates - no idea why, but there are a lot of pirate themed parties about at the moment... anyone would think there was a pirate film out soon :-D - so I decided to do him a pirate card
Before I go, Kerry has got a Blogaversary Candy going at the moment - this is a biggy as she is adding a something to it every day... for the next, errr, lots of days, until the 22nd July!!
That's it from me today - off to delight in goodness knows how many over excited children... wish me luck :-D
