Working with YP I think is a tricky thing. They have few rights really, okay there is child protection and if something particularly bad is happening it can be stopped but just middling poor treatment their ain't much that can be done quickly! My standards are high, not in a materialistic way but in an emotional way I expect a lot from adults around children.
I strongly believe in YP's rights, right to to make their own decisions (common sense goes here) their right to be allowed and encouraged to take responsabity, and definitely their right to be able to trust some half decent adults.
I am particularly talking about vunerable YP whose lives don't contain enough to hold them safetly and can often get themselves into a few scraps.
What grates me is those who aim to help with all the good will in the world who strip away those rights, who with no mallice take away what power those kids have.
It annoys me, end of


I am plastering tomorrow :)
The hall should be getting nearly finished then, then I may be able to do some painting, I am so looking forward to painting the hall.

Ian and I plastered the hall, plaster boarded one ceiling plastered 2 and a little wall. Took all day and I was very tired. Today I wake up with a significantly painful; neck and shoulders, this has gone off through the day and with the help of a few paracetamols :)

See how I've labelled it to save confusion, I put the labels on digitally, not with icing before I ate ie :)

i biked to and from work today, Elaine biking to uni has had a good influence on me :) I think it will get easier with time, he he

hot milk and bourbons

I like hot milk and bourbons and when I have them my brain knows it's nearly time for bed and begins to shut down. So I think it may be an issue that having my milk at 8.20pm and means I will be asleep soon :)

Another school shooting in USA - it scares me all this stuff, freaky little work we live in

good evening

it's never a good idea to nap just before be time, if you do you can end up blggoing at 12.45am

my dinner in the last blog was made up of:
asda's corned beef slices x3
new potatoes with melted butter
mushy peas

after i had taken to photo a large blob of tomoto sauce was also added :)

It was lovely!!!!!

Today my cough has almost gone so I'm hoping to be fit as a fiddle tomorrow, need to be on top form for the weekend as Ian and I are going to be doing a spot of plastering!

cut my finger

oooooooo i cut my finger while I was cutting up an apple, just at the end of my finger, is sore
cold is getting better, just got that annoying cough now :)
I off to Rugby for some training tomorrow, never a bad thing to go for a wander out of Coventry

Today I had such a busy little old day at work, one of them where you just don't know whether you are coming or going. I like those days sometimes, not always but sometimes.

cold day 3 or 4

It's monday and my cold is still with me, I ran training at work today from 10 til 3 and it's wiped me out completely. My nose is a little sore, on a positive point in someways my voice now sounds like I have a cold which is validating in someways but means I got a sore throat now.

Think it be going off tomorrow :)
