Gah, school holidays

We're on day 3, I'm ready to run away, at least I would be if I hadn't hurt my back. Moaning kids and bad back's do not go together.

The main problem is that for the last 2 days they have woken me up at 5am, 5am, this morning it was Isobel whistling that woke me, yesterday it was George shouting. It's just before 8am and it feels like I've been awake for days.

The scale isn't great, I've not actually stood on it today but yesterday was 14st 8lbs (204 lbs) so now 9 pounds away from my goal with 16 days to go, not sure that it looks so good, I really fell of the wagon, tiredness and frustrations are my reasons but I'm to blame.

Sunshine is on the horizon! My daughter is off to stay with my Aunt tomorrow, she then goes to my in laws so she's away for 2 weeks, I'm really looking forward to a break, she and I just argue, she has such a terrible attitude especially towards her brother.

The school meeting was incredibly patronising, apparently I must be careful what I watch on the television around her as you may assume things would go over other childrens heads but not hers. I pointed out that there is never ever anything other than childrens programs on the tv if they're here and it's on, the only thing I have on is the radio occasionally in the kitchen, apparently I should be very careful of this, I pointed out that it's mainly radio 4 and there is a real world out there! Stupid woman, I took a friend as I hate doing these things on my own, Sarah has known Isobel all of her life and is a teacher and she was astounded.
I rebelled slightly yesterday by letting Izzy listen to Woman's hour on Radio 4 yesterday, she might turn in to a radical feminist! (Radio 4 is quite middle class, quite proper I suppose for those that don't know)

Anyway, off to argue with my kids!
Have a good day.


  1. I think we needed more feminists in this world to deal with those stupid so called teachers who sometimes think they are experts. Your kids will be ok. I personally think they need to be exposed to the world in a controlled way because when they grow up, it will be their world. Bad things happen and if we talk about it with them when they are young, they will see the grownup view, not the view from being a kid. Hope the day goes better and the sun stays out.

  2. I think it is so funny that teachers have no problem picking on everything parents do. Let them teach children where the parents don't give a shit about their children! There are plenty of those people out there! *back handed slap*

  3. Ignore the idiot teacher. She should focus on parents who don't know how to parent. Don't take any crap from her, stand up to her and tell her to mind her own business! And, great job - you only have 5 pounds to go till onederland! I'm sure you can get there fast!
