Postings

Yes folks, after a mad dash of posts last week it's been a slower one this time around. That's because its been a faster week with everything else. I'm only posting this now because a student has not turned up and I'm clearing some of the detritus of my office to get straight. And because I need to apologise for my relative absence.

Also, I'm feeling a bit beleagured for a variety of reasons (some of which I do not want to go into here, at least at the moment). Work is a key one, but not the only one. Sometimes its harder to move on or keep things as you would like; sometimes things don't work out as planned or hoped; sometimes you just want a "stop" button...

Anyway, bear with me folks: I'm just under the weather at the mo. Counting the days till the end of term. Thankfully I have a good man and some awesome friends to remind me that I shouldn't always take full burdens for things on myself or blame myself for everything that happens. I'll get back in the swing of things soon I'm sure...

Chin up ladyfox! The holidays will be with you sooner than you imagine. And there's Secret Smile to look forward to on Monday and Tuesday...

Yay Secret Smile!
I'm feeling the same at the mo, Lisa, but when you've got good people around you, you'll never go far wrong. All the best :)

Drink copious amounts of whisky.

Aw, take care, chuck.

The run-up to Xmas is always a snowball of mania, and then it's all over and there's nothing to do.

Try and make space to chill out.

Have you tried some positive self-talk? It makes you look like a nutter, but it does actually work.

Hope you feel better soon, anyway.

I administered an online hug to Ardee yesterday, but now it's your turn. It's obvious: good man + awesome friends = lisa's gonna come through the shit!

Anyway, for what it's worth, I've also been feeling rather shitty this week - it must be the time of year!

What happens at end of term? Do you get a little vacation, like teachers?

I break up 21st Dec - and go back on 3rd Jan. Students finish next Friday, but thats only the standard undergraduates. Nursing students and postgrads continue; and any undergrads who are around over Xmas. So the full-pelt slows but doesn't go.

Thanks to everyone for being so fab. And so sorry I'm not feeling my usual perky self...

have a good 'yin, Lisa,and we will all be looking forward to your postings when you get back from that age old tradition of eating too much, getting drunk and having blistering rows with relatives which means that you won't have to see or speak to them again for at least another eleven months. ;-)
