25 Sleeps to Christmas

I am so behind all my pre Christmas jobs this year, I usually have my cards posted and most of my pressies got, but this year I am behind, I have all my cards to write and few pressies sorted yet. I hoped to get time this weekend and instead ended up cooking and going out for Saturday and sleeping in and having a fab long bath on Sunday, I he pick up after Tom being away and he so needed the peace too, but now I am behind and tonight I am due to get my swine Flu jab! woo hoo not! so I may be even more behind by tomorrow!
Saturday was fab more info from landgirl and I bought some cheap socks and have them ready to make a monkey, even went and saw the shop ones on my way home, way to go Jill.
Monday is cold and worse the heating at work is patchy and one whole building is unheated as of 8.50am much to every one who is in it very unhappy. I am okay and the library is 20 c at the moment, but I feel under dressed as the office have lost their extra heaters and have put back on coats, the new block has every one in coats and woollies, the kids are walking between buildings and are wrapped up warm. while I am in a thin top, and okay while in my library but it isn't warm!
Spent part of yesterday watching the snow fall and not settle out of my front room window, best sort of snow.

Not a suprize but annoying

I chased up a contact for work about a book fair I give every year around the first full week in December, imagine my shock when they said no fair! It costs the organisers £300 plus to run fair and need the school to promise to return £400 in sales! well I have done over that occasionally but mainly in the £300 range, and so I don't qualify for a fair unless I 'promise to sell £400 or more' and I could make it up in sales from me! but finances are currently running very dry (oops over spend already this year) and my return from running it is usually free books, I would need to buy the books to make up the difference and then find even more to make my free ones! but they really didn't want to send my one, well how sad, less work for me, less hassle and no sorting all the funds out and being in two places at once! If they don't want my work I am happy with the time. must get my cards written, may even use my craft Saturday for that, it is for finishing things after all! and my cards need finishing.

I have just discovered I can update from work! At last I should get a chance to do more here. The headie of English is setting her whole higher class up on the system as a multimedia exercise and a way to keep interaction as free as possible. (or I think so?) I did some checking and found not only could I make a blog I could get on my own blog! I planned this to be a refection of work and home for me so I shall now be able to add more work sides.
I am currently helping sort email problems and vaults, which has gone to the help desk to get the right buttons installed on every ones machine (mine got done by a very nice young man whole helped me the first time) am also having to marshall my thoughts and sort out my chartership documents as I have been asked to mentor someone else through theirs, which I am thrilled to do but terrified as well! the termly meetings have been going well and we are getting alot sorted each meeting, must check I have done all my jobs for this, but I think so.
Also have just joined the ecoschools committee as the green ambassador for wick high which is even odder, but I must turn off monitors and light s and be responsible before I can ask that of any one else!
Daughter is off school today with bad cough, she has been working up to it for days!, mind you she wanted to day off to be with her dad who dosent work tuesdays, guess what, he had to work today and so she is home alone, poor soul!
Must go and see how my kids are doing this lunch time and hope to do more tomorrow.
