Thai Chi Thursday.

I know it's not a martial art, but it's all I could thing of - it IS ten to six, and I'm tired.

How did it go BFG?  I remember well my first (and only) Judo class - the next day people kept saying 'are you stiff' and I was bouncing about going 'no, I don't know what the fuss is all about' - but the day after that one of the lads from accounts had to carry me up the stairs to my office........ I was smaller then Smile

I have MIL and SIL to-be coming today.  And if I'm to be honest I'm less than thrilled.  I have work to do, because I have a job now - of course OH goes OUT to work, so he has swanned off and doesn't have to deal with them, because I work mostly from home somehow entertaining falls to me.  So that's work gone for a burton then.  Sometimes I hate working from home - people just assume you are 'available' (well OH does).

And my quote for the week 'oh, she isn't fussy, she eats chicken OR fish'.

They are turning up at 11am and not leaving until 7.30 - I offered to take them 'out' somewhere (I'd have thought of something) but no, they want to stay at the house.

So, I am entertaining in-laws today, and had to get up at 5am to work before they arrive.

I have a meeting at 9am - and hope to be back before they get here.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed?

I should say they are lovely lovely people.......... but we've lived here a year and two months now - why on earth do you think they didn't arrange to visit on a Sunday when no one works and OH would be home?

*Hopeful did you get an answer yesterday?*

Hope your day ends up being a good one Corris
Hubby has taken W to school, I was going to say I'd do it so he could finish some paperwork, but when W asked who was taking him to school hubby said  ''I suppose it'll be me''  so I didn't bother saying anything.

Need to sort out C's clothes, he's in respite tomorrow and seems to have lost all bar one pair of socks and 2 pairs of underpants. I've searched his room and they aren't there, they aren't in the washing, nor are they amongst W's clothes. Not sure what else I'll be doing for the rest of the day

It was brilliant! The style is called Krav Maga, its more a self-defence method than a martial art, but its VERY intense. I was feeling it after the first five minutes warming up (I seriously do very little exercise!) and after an hour I was physically exhausted but mentally I felt on top of the world. The other people in the class were a bit intimidating, they all looked like off-duty bouncers (which to be fair, they probably were, given the nature of the training!), but all turned out to be very nice, friendly guys.

Fortunately I don't have to wear pyjamas or anything - you wear normal street clothes and trainers. I have a mildly sore head where I failed to block a rather over-enthusiastic partner! Anyway, i loved it, although I regretted parking on the top floor of the car park when I had to drag myself up four flights of stairs to get back to my car. I'm going again next week.

As for working from home, i find that EVERYTHING falls to me because, after all, I'm 'just' at home. Its most annoying.

Jacqui, i hope you find at least some of C's things. What on earth does he do with his pants?

Thank you Corris, I finally tracked down the person I needed.  They decided that he needs another assessment because the psychologist wasn't there.  I actually bumped into her today and she was going mad because she wasn't told about the meeting.  She phoned me later to say that 4 out of the 5 all agreed that ys is very typical aspergers and high up the spectrum but the other guy wanted anther assessment for autism but as he has passed the developmental tests for this she said its a waste of time doing it again!

Anyhow another issue with the school, think I'll hide in ys' teepee!
