Back posting this to yesterday as my computer at home decided to corrupt Windows last night – while in the middle of a session on LOTRO with DH & P. So instead of finalising this post, I spent the evening reinstalling Windows – and no doubt will be doing more updates when I finally get home (I have meeting till 5pm :()
Up to then it was a good day – I got my marking done and the feedback given to students. I also got told the lecture I gave was great – which is always a boost to me, and I think we have plans to help one of our struggling students actually get through this year. Such is the varied life of a university academic – oh and I managed a bit of research reading as well.
Morning was fun – I got up to have a shower and when I went back to our bedroom there was a little cheeky boy in my half of the bed happily snuggling down with Daddy. Good thing I was up I suppose although he was clingy on me leaving, but that is fairly usual as he is still not certain about me being back at work. He had a much better day at nursery yesterday – fantastic according to his home-school book. His childminder said he was altogether more with it. He certainly was a lot better in the evening after I picked him up although still tired as evidenced by falling asleep easily again. However we happily setup his wooden railway on lounge floor (cleaners fortnightly visit so had to be taken up in morning) and he then was happy pushing trains around it. He did have night terrors in middle of night which was not so good however. Not sure why, but we did get him settled again.
Also managed to sort a visit to a prospective childminder as current one is pregnant. Hopefully will like the setting as the other 2 boys she has are in Sqk’s nursery class so that will make transition easier. If we do decide to go with her then we will have to plan transition carefully – probably gradually moving over December from old to new childminder. It will be more difficult now I am back at work but we shall manage. Just hope it doesn’t disturb Sqk too much.
