    Morning ladies....

    LO was really sick in the night. I'll see how he is once he wakes but he may have to stay with his Nanna if he's not well

    Poor thing.... Hate it when hes poorly.

    Morning all.

    Emm hope LO is ok.

    I went to bed at 9pm last night, I was tired and knew if I stayed up to watch the next programme I would have been awake for ages. According to my fbit I only woke up once, I woke up more but not for a long time. I had some restless moments and 15 mins awake so all in all, a good night.

    I've been training a new library assistant this afternoon. First time I've been involved in training. We were working on the issue desk together and I had a huge list of all the things that she ultimately needs to be confident in. It was quiet on the desk so she didn't get so much real practice, but I was able to show her quite a few things and at least give examples of things. She's got quite a bit of time with the senior library assistant so they should cover quite a lot. She is very quick which is good.

    I know Emily, there is actually an approx tracking them but I did not find it until after I got the new one, plus with the fbit zip you have to tap it to sync it with the phone so not sure it will work.

    Popped to @ldi and got a few bits in and then into town to get what we could not get. Just had teriyaki salmon with courgette spaghetti from the J Wicks book, it's lush, bar far my fave so far.

    Evening all- had a busy weekend- worked Saturday- such a busy day- had a meltdown on Saturday night over missing mum :(

    OH went out to get t Saturday night and came back with a balloon and said I should write mum a message and attach to balloon to release on Sunday so I did

    So it's that time of year, and Mother's Day suddenly appeared.
    I thought I was being brave, but then I shed a tear.
    I miss you more than ever this year as I journey through my life,
    Planning exciting things that I know you would have liked.
    Some days I just wish I could pick up the phone and hear your motherly advice,
    Instead I'll have a gin and tonic today to honour your life. :-)

    Love you to the moon and back, always and forever xxx

    We then went to the wedding show, to the pub in way home for a gin and tonic and then went to his mums for t, bit my tongue and was pleasant to his sis, who was also pleasant back- progress! Lol

    Been busy at work and been training new starter but had 4 people off today too so just crazy- I'm out tomoz, in meetings weds in Thursday and then off fri and Monday! Just not enough hours in the day!

    Aww Michelle you're balloon message is lovely. Hugs for you xx

    We've had a great day - HV very happy with J's progress. My only concern is J still has slightly bent toes - she had positional talipes when she was born that affected her whole foot from her ankles- and it's preventing us from getting properly fitted shoes for her. Technically she's a 2G but because of her toes she's having to wear a size 3 (with laces) but they are heavy and clunky and impeding her ability to walk. HV wants to refer her but we've got to wait until she's at least 12 months before the specialists will even consider seeing her. So for now she's usually barefoot- not a problem at home but not sure how nursery will feel about it.

    Lovely dinner for salmon and broccoli pasta bake for tea - then I'm off for a long soak!

    Have a good evening all

    Thank you both- last year I was ok- this Mother's Day miss her loads- I guess as I know planning a wedding is something she would have loved. Also would have loved surprising dad for his birthday, going on holiday, a day at the horses and a weekend to samtapod, all things that I feel she should be there for.

    oH has been such a rock these past few days- I just have to smile, live and let her love go on- something I know she woukd want be to do rather than be upset :-)

    Love cottage pie yummy

    The library assistant that I've been training today is covering another colleague who has a three month career break for a short term academic post. My cover starts in a week, so hopefully I'll have time to show her everything before I finish on March 24th.

    It was yummy :-) nice cup of tea now to wash it down!

    Having a nice laid back day today - it's nice to be able to crack on with my own work for once rather than helping other people with theirs! Yesterday was the day from hell, felt so drained when I got home - then I had to go out and do the food shop and on my way home from there I had a call from OH telling me to go round to my mum's as she'd been round in floods of tears as her boyfriend had finished with her.

    Can't wait to get home this evening, get in my pjs, cook din dins then just do absolutely nothing!!!! Feeling a nice hot bubble bath as well to de-stress.

    She's not good at the moment but I'm sure she'll get there. To be honest, I think she is more upset/worried about being alone in general as opposed to being without him. She's worried about being the only single person at the wedding as well - the only other single person is OH's nan! Told her it doesn't matter at all and no one will even notice or care in the slightest!!! She's better off being on her own than sharing the special day with someone who doesn't deserve it. He's a complete *£&$($)@@"&$!!!

    Afternoon. Done nothing in the house, lazed around, got showered, then took my son's gf to the next town to get a few bits, done the shopping, or at least what I could get in @ldi, just grabbing some lunch, then a sleep as been asked to work tonight as one of my work bffs has gone poorly.

    Gutted, Janet Jackson has cancelled,

    I got on the scales yesterday and lost some weight, done myself again this morning and it's still the same so hopefully it was not just a one off, continue with this eating o,an and hopefully by the summer we would both have lost at least a stone.

    Afternoon all, had an all day meeting today but have dipped out for the rest of the day to get some urgent stuff done.

    My UKBride has had security problems too. I thought it was just my work laptop but then tried to get on last night on [email protected] and it wasn't having any of it.

    Michelle so lovely for your OH to think of that for you and your words are beautiful xx

    Not feeling 100% today. I wasn't yesterday either, got on the bus and started crying. But just carried on with it. Today I got up had a shower and crawled back into bed and just cried. Not sure what it is but it's been putting me off my food. Trying to think of something nice and yummy that I will look forward to for dinner so that I will actually eat it but can't think of anything.

    I ended up going off to the sorting office this morning, as hubby had had a birthday card sent through registered post (his birthday is Friday). I was starting late this morning so was able to go with his passport, although in the end they didn't ask for ID. It's really frustrating, they only ever open late on one evening a week which is tomorrow, and we start ante-natal classes tomorrow. Hubby had initially said could we go there before the class, but I really wasn't sure that we could get there and still get to the class on time. Otherwise it would have had to wait until Friday itself when I'm on leave, but I'm waiting in for a delivery and we don't know what time the delivery will come. Plus he will be ringing his sister, who sent it, on the day, and needs to know what is in it before he does. She lives in a residential home for young disabled adults as she has severe cerebral palsy, and they always insist on sending the card registered post as it will include a gift voucher. He gets really exasperated and has asked the staff before not to send it registered. They don't seem to comprehend how difficult it is to pick it up. It was a 15 minute drive for me to go and get it, and if I wasn't working the evening and didn't have leave this week I'm not sure what we would have done.
