A Time For Change

A milestone in my life has been achieved. I was awarded my exemplary work & long service medal for over 22 years service. It got me thinking, what am I going to do when retirement arrives. If the last 2 decades are anything to go by it will arrive all to quickly. So I have decided to explore the possibilty of entering the education system again with the the rather ambitious target of becoming a Solicitor on the day I retire. For a while I had nutured this idea and kept it only as a persona

Every Parents Nightmare

It's been an awful week for us, my 5 year old niece was struck down by menigitis, the viral form. She was happy alert last Friday, then on the the Saturday she began to feel unwell, she was sat in the front room on the floor, chewing. She had nothing in her mouth at the time, then she wouldn't respond to her parents or even recognise them. They'd been giving her Calpol up until then, but then the rash appeared. She was rushed to Hospital. In the A & E she began to fit and the rash flared up

Actually Using The Gym Membership

As a little booster to my wife and I, we ( for this read she ) decided that we should join a gym. Now this decision was made after much discussion and in the end my wife said we were going to join, so we did. Now enrolment was particpated in prior to Christmas. This was on the grounds of; That EVERYONE joins AFTER Christmas If we start before, then it doesn't matter how much you indulge over Christmas Now the latter did appeal to me, bearing in mind that as mentioned in an earlier entry that I

Back To The Real World

Passed my training course at the second time of asking...........much to my relief I can tell you. I was just checking my e-mails when I got one from an old friend who I hadn't seen in years. Turns out he's been rushed into hospital to have a malignant Lyphoma removed from his nether regions. It just goes to prove that there a lot more important things in life then worrying about passing or failing a poxy course. For the first time in a while all of us are in rude health, no sniffles, coughs or

...and The Illness Just Keeps On Coming

Well eldest is still not back to school, been to the Doctors who told us; "yes she probably did have a virus", "no she didn't know what sort" and "no she wasn't going to prescribe her anything". Which leaves us with the situation of a 14 year old telling us (after guidance from our GP) if she feels well enough to go to school. Needless to say she WILL be well enough to go!!!. Been busy on a driving course today, second go at it I might add. I am learning how to safely terminate a pursuit. some

Another Day Another Ilmess

It never ceases to amaze me just how poorly my daughters can get ill and just how quickly they become well again. The eldest is now unwell. She appears to have been struck down by a very severe case of schoolitis. Although genuine illness can't be ruled out, hence a day off school for her and a trip to the Doctors. I always work on the assumption that; They maybe able to pull the wool over my eyes but not the Doctors. So its' off to the surgery (again) and hopefully some rather unpleasant tastin

Another Day, Another Poorly Bad Daughter

what is it with kids? the first sign of a little cough and sore throat you'd think they were on deaths door. There I was at work when I retrieved my phone from my bag only to find three messages to call my wfe URGENTLY. So I did, turns out my youngest ( who's 12 5'6" and is fit as a lop) was a little under the weather at school. Could I drop everything and go get her. Of course as with everything, I called my wife back, only to be told she'd left work about 15mins earlier...why don't I try her

Got To Go Back To Work

Hi all, well I've just discovered the blogs so i'd thought I'd start one myself. For those nosey enough to read this I've been very fortunate in that I've managed to take 4 yes 4 weeks off from work. This is through no fault of my own. I had religiously kept close check on how much leave I'd taken last year ( I took all of August off as well...he.he I don't like working in August. August is for sun, sea, to much ice cream and lazy days at the pub ) and resigned myself to working through most
