An apology to the Internet

Dear Internet

So sorry I've been crap at staying in touch and keeping you up to date BUT ... just plain knackered. I've started to write this blogpost 3 times and fallen asleep in the chair! I know, I know, anyone would think 69 not 39!!
So ... how's you? Thankyou by the way for allowiing me to cry again and again whilst listening to and watching Jamie Pugh on Britain's Got Talent - truely lovely and while we are at it "bugger me BUT Simon Cowell has fabulous teeth!"
So, been busy, busy here. Audits and interviewing for new teachers, pressure, pressure, reports, SATs (standardised assessment tests), more pressure ... been waiting for the end of term and it's been a long time coming!! So as I am now awake that means no more getups (school ones that is) for 9 days - whoop!! Off to Spain tomorrow morning for a week. Meeting up with my parents for a couple of days of sun, sea and seafood - bring it on! Simon obviously doesn't get the amount of time off that I do so is staying home - I'll miss him BUT sun+sea+seafood+Spain vs Simon .... I'll be back in a week!
Luckily his job is holding out - the building trade has been hit here BUT he seems to be ok. In fact they are still getting bonuses so they are obviously meeting their targets. Thankfully he's been given 2 weeks off in the summer so we'll be in France from July 3rd.
Righty, need to get ready for school, have a good one

A lot of bloggers seem to be flagging, including myself. Are we tiring a bit of it all? I'm trying to downsize my online commitments in order to do more reading, music, cooking...

I had to go watch Jamie Pugh on You Tube. Amazing.

I think Betty C is correct......middle of the year, almost summer, and we are getting weary and of course, our end of the school year/fiscal year commitments!

It's memorial day weekend here...long 3 day weekend from god awful boring state goverment work. I truely wish I could join you for a sun and fun weekend in Spain. Haven't been to Spain since...are you ready....1976! Yikes.

Have fun and please take loads of pictures. I live through some of the wonderful snaps my favorite bloggers put up on their sites.

Cheers Jo!

Well, at least you didn't do what I did, and lose your blog all together. Oh man . . . was that a PITA!

Thank you for commenting, and wishing me well in figuring out all the html to get my blog back.

I'm up and running again. WOO HOO! Come on by to check it out, and let me know what you think.

Jamie's voice is so beautiful!

Agree re the flagging blogging...what is happening to us all?

And just how much did Simon pay for those teeth!!

I'm struggling with posting on my blog too. Maybe it's the arrival of summer and other things to do. Maybe it's just that it takes up too much time. VLiF
