I love to look at light over water - sunrise or sunset or fireworks, you name it. Particularly when there are rocks involved. You have to look for the light in these pictures BUT it's there!

Sorry, not quite loud enough!


Last day of school - happy doesn't even begin to describe it this term ;o)

My phantom mouse finger!

I had no Internet access this morning. It was hellish. In fact if anyone asks again what my definition of hell is I shall say "awake at 4.30am with no Internet access. Unable to move in Scrabulous. Not even You tube to laugh at!"

And yet through it all my mouse finger kept moving. Like when someone looses a leg but their toes itch!

Even, even more notes to self

Last week you made 3 co-workers cry! No, wait ... YOU can't MAKE anyone cry, it's their tear-ducts/emotions/frustration/anger that does all the work. But they cried because of things you said/they overheard you saying. Things that weren't meant to set off those feelings/emotions. It wasn't purposeful on your part. So, it's Tuesday already. No-one cried yesterday! NOTE TO SELF ... shut the hell up today it's just not worth the risk!

You presented a staff meeting yesterday. You filled the car at the petrol station on the way home. You had to go to Tesco on the way home last night. You did all those things with a big pink blotch on the cheek of your arse. NOTE TO SELF ... check chairs before you sit down today, 3 & 4 year olds don't care where they leave the playdough!

You have your mother's M&S credit card details. You know the turkey you are supposed to order. You're taking said turkey* to France in 11 days. You have to order by the 12th. That's tomorrow. NOTE TO SELF ... order the friggin turkey! That's not any turkey, that's an M&S turkey. Today!

On the nights of the 20th and 21st you are the emergency contact for the school. If anything happens you will be phoned. YOU! The police, fire brigade, the women's institute, they'll all ring you! NOTE TO SELF ... start hounding the caretaker. He's had two weeks to cut you a set of keys, he needs to show you how to use them and how to turn the alarm off. Grab him** today.

* It'll enjoy the trip!
** But wear those extra long rubber gloves and wash down with hibiscrub afterwards.

Umhlanga beach - looking south, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa

Can you see the end of the beach? Way down there in the distance? Past the light house, just keep on walking! I was in South Africa, near Durban, the beach went on and on for ever. It was a long walk back.

Throwing myself on a sharp object

There's a sense of urgency that's missing, a galloping need calmed ... NaBloPoMo is over and I had nothing to say yesterday, so mercifully for t'Internet I remained quiet. Mercifully, because in real life I was just a tad narked.

Yesterday was my termly lesson observation ... it's a little like the sword of Damocles - hanging over my head until it's done and then the platitudes of the feedback make me want to throw myself onto the blade. Right in the middle of my chest. Not that I'd be allowed to bring my sword to school, so I'd be better off trying to throw myself onto the forward-thrusting, open blades of a child running with scissors!
Back to normal today ... lead me to the snotty little lovelies!

Art work at the Durban BAT Centre
The red bead work dishes in the centre stand out for me. Hundreds of hours of work in each one. I just couldn't afford one - they were worth every rand. So I just had to settle for a red chilli key-ring.
