I do hate returning to work after a long weekend – even though I was actually only with Sqk one day longer than I usually am. Last week was an odd one as I was ill Mon-Tues so in effect worked one day. This week I am having to catch up with everything – including organising a lecture to cover for the one cancelled last Monday. As I said to my DH it is typical I am ill on the one day where I am the only lecturer on a module.
Anyway I was late in this morning as the day started with a routine dental appointment where both the dentist & the hygienist were pleased with my teeth – which is a newish thing as until I started wearing a mandible splint due to sleep apnoea I was not great at remembering to clean my teeth twice a day. Spent the rest of the morning catching up on various bits and pieces – and avoiding the marking I have to do – that will be tomorrows job. Research telcon was its usual unnecessary self and then I did my lecture before coming home via Asda for the weekly shopping.
Got to Sqk’s childminder where she dropped the bombshell on me that she is pregnant so now having to go through the aggro of finding new childcare – and also dealing with her announcement (third one in a month – hard when you are infertile). Plus Sqk had a bad day at nursery – unprovoked pushing of other children and generally being displaying very silly behaviour. Not sure why but we and a little chat about not pushing- I suspect it may be he was tired as he fell asleep rather quickly tonight.
Anyway DH is cooking curry and once we have eaten I am off to hit things in my current MMO – I need some stress relief 😀
