Rest of the Week

Hmmm, well, it's been a funny old week. Haven't really achieved very much at all, due to a combination of bad moods/depression (mostly mine), colds and sniffles (mostly Emily's) and business chaos. I really can't remember what happened on Wednesday, which is probably a good thing since it certainly wasn't very educational.

Thursday Emily was poorly all day, so she missed tai chi for the second week running. She'd perked up a bit by the afternoon and we were all set to go off to the first drama lesson of the term, but then the wind blew up a right storm here as just about everywhere else, so it seems. With TV aerials and chimney pots blown down from three houses just next to us and Emily almost unable to stand up outdoors, I didn't fancy the drive plus the hour's wait in a carpark dominated by an extremely tall and not very thick tree :-/ So, call me a wimp, but we gave drama a miss. I did like listening to the wind, though. So much more refreshing and alive than blue skies and silence.

On Friday morning I was extremely upset about various issues so I went back to bed and slept all morning - something I hardly ever, ever do, so it must have been bad. Well, that's my excuse anyway! At lunchtime Emily and I set off to Grimsby to see the Shakespeare for Kids performance of Midsummer Night's Dream, which Emily enjoyed a lot. I wasn't that keen - it was certainly very funny, but rather TOO funny - the original play may have been a comedy but it wasn't a flippin' pantomime. Think they rather overdid it there, especially with Pyramus' death. Much preferred last year's Romeo and Juliet which had half the audience in tears by the end of it. Then again, perhaps having been in an extremely grumpy mood all day didn't exactly endear it to me.

Today we've been off to ballet and tap, and Emily and I have spent most of the afternoon working together (note cunning use of the word working there) on the Harry Potter/Azkaban PC game where we both keep getting stuck. Hey, it's IT skills, isn't it???? Jon and I have actually got sooooo much work to do, but we're both feeling the pressure at the moment and unsure where to start. Here's to a better week next week. We've got a rescheduled soft play centre visit with friends to look forward, and another friend coming to tea/play mid week, plus various appointments including Emily to the opticians, plus all her classes, plus potentially, so I understand, some SNOW SNOW SNOW perhaps it will be better. I'm sure it will.

We're holding out for snow too, although with temperatures at 10 degrees today, can't see it happening somehow! Elle
