If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs…

Not to go all Kipling on you, but even for this school it is crazy at the moment. It’s 7.20, I’ve just finished work and am quickly posting this and grabbing a coffee before doing another hour. Then I get to go home and pack for the expedition, which leaves tomorrow. At 8 a.m..

To quote my mother on the phone last night: “You’d only be bored if there was less to do.”

Bored/sane, potato/patata.

I just want to put my fingers to the keys and apologise for not blogging as regularly as I have been doing for the last couple of months, and for breaking out quite so many memes etc….I guess in place of actually turning my brain on, I was plugging the gap a little with the surveys.

Life’s a little manic here right now, what with school, babysitting, friends, driving, meetings, reports, prep. for the summer, social craziness, home stuff, tutoring, embracing the healthkick once more…I feel like I’m trying to keep lots of balls aloft at the current time, and this state of affairs often means that blogging comes fairly low on the list of priorities! Rest assured that as soon as there’s a lull I will no doubt be back pondering things in a typical Claire style, and I hope you’ll be here to read when I do.

I am just shattered and really want to have time to kick back and just relax for a day or three. And I can.

In August.


Tomorrow I head to Wales for four days with fifty children…that’s got to be good for some blogworthy anecdotes, right?

With love and best wishes as always,

PS How are you guys, anyways?

PPS How great was the Season 1 finale of Ugly Betty? I was literally in tears whilst on the edge of my seat. And I am altogether, entirely, beyond-help-ability invested in the whole Henry and Betty relationship. Can’t wait for Season 2 to air here!

PPPS I’ve booked my flights for summer! And I will returning to the country that kicked the Faroe Islands butts in the qualifiers last night (woo!!??) on August 6th. Will hope to do lots of catching up with you lovely peeps then.

PPPPS Many thanks to all involved in the current postal bonanza – there is something delightful about schlepping home from work and finding a package or a postcard or a letter, just for little old me :-). If you’d like something sent your way, in a circle of life style, let me know at linaire@googlemail.com, particularly as over the next few weekends I have sitting in tent time and babysitting time booking up quite nicely – perfect postcard writing time!

PPPPPS I think that’s called irony – I write a post apologising for having nothing to post about….and write my longest post in an age!

Wishing you a weekend full of good things – now I have to go leave stuff for Monday’s classes, pack my bags, attempt to have dinner at some point, and get a clue.

Hey, it’s never dull!

Have a great weekend!
