Couldn't get 'ahead' of myself today - too much 'rat-bagginess' from the kids - so I forsee being a bit screwed for catching up with work for the rest of the week :-( Still, did have one 'Wow!' moment with one student...

My cycle is ill - and it's like I'm missing the other half of myself. I shall have to take my folder tomorrow, and lock it in the staff work-cupboard. And I got very cold waiting for a bus back from the cycle shop :-((( But I'm warm again, and G made a lovely dinner for me :-)

Cat truce seems to be holding - B sniffed P's nose :-)

Had my first 'personal' tutorial, and my tutor was very patient and supportive.

But now I need to do half-an-hour of work, and then to seriously unwind for sleep...

Have survived Day 1 of 40. Reasonably prepared for tomorrow, and relaxed for sleep...

OU personal tutorial tomorrow, school mentor session Thursday, OU academic tutorial a week on Tuesday. Hope I can be Frank.

Thought for the day: I'm not very good at boundaries e.g. between 'must', 'should', 'could', and 'would just be fun'...

Back to training in the morning. Clock ticking: 40 days of school, plus 17 days of holiday, plus 26 days of weekend, plus 15 days of assignments, until I'm due to hand in my final portfolio (in early June). Any way you look at it, there is going to have to be a lot of living it up at the end - party, wake, waddeva...

Day-OK

Mater's meeting was gruelling, but I think we helped her make a good decision. I think her convalescence will move forward now.

School was OK, although everyone's ill. I made a reasonable start.

The kitties are batting aat one another, seeming frustrated. Mr P will have to sleep alone again, but is currently purring on my lap.

And so, to snoo.

Urgent meeting about significant changes to Mater's treatment plan, 10 am.

Into school for start of planning week, delayed until pm.

Feeling a little less awful. Good to have so many people who are serious about protecting me from myself...

Wish me luck!

Thanks everyone :-) It went OK! Very slow easing back into school, having been off since March, but OK. And Mater coped reasonably well - but tomorrow's going to be harder, as she'll be alone at home all day.

Sad cat story, possibility of happy ending? )

I know I'm preaching to the choir, but people - please get your female and male cats neutered unless you are a responsible cat breeder, so there are fewer unwanted cats going stray.

Wish us all luck ... we're going to need it...
