Bloody Neighbours

GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrr - I am feeling seriously pissed off at our neighbours who just shouted at Ellie for going to ask for the boys' ball back, what miserable, crabby no-life morons, they are annoying enough as they smoke all the time and it gets in our house which makes it smell awful but now they have just shown how mean they can be - I mean shouting at a nine-year old who was going to ask for the ball not just take it. Any remains of a neighbourly relationship is now gone forever as far as I am concerned. I can forgive them, I just don't want to be on the same planet let alone next door.

Altering Behaviour

I got carpeted by the teacher today as my lovely 5 year old 'punched someone in the mouth'. Nobody saw him do it, neither child said much about it, the other child was bigger and older than him but was hurt. He says he was being held on to and was trying to get away, the teacher clearly didn't believe him - what should I do as a mother?

My instinct was that it couldn't be as bad as they said, he is not vindictive nor does he go looking for trouble as a rule, and I don't like kids being punished twice for misdemeanours, but he can't go around causing trouble as he'll get a bad name. Hmmmm - dilemma for me......

advice welcome!

New beginnings

After yesterday I started thinking about why I was quiet atm and one of the reasons is that I hate how I look, so today I joined sparkpeople - I have got to lose weight - I have a great reason to do it now (fab holiday next year) and I feel like it is the last chance saloon for me if I'm not to be huge my whole life.

So here and now I am putting into writing my intentions to stick with this and get to a size I can like myself in - wish me luck, my track record is lousy but I have to start somewhere :)

where did the words go?

I've been quiet recently, especially on here, but in real life as well - I just haven't found the words inside me. I've even had trouble holding my thoughts together. This is a weird feeling as I work with words and would consider myself articulate normally.

See? I'm stuck again. I normally have stuff buzzing all around my head, but in clear streams, now it's just buzz. does it bother me? Yes! What can I do about it? Not sure.

Maybe it's just summer inertia.......
