|A pretty but irrelevant lotus from Khao Yai|
What shockingly bad manners I have. It’s been a while, hasn’t it?
This time – not that it makes a blind bit of difference to you – it wasn’t because I hadn’t got anything to say but because I’ve been SOOO busy.
First it was migraines, then I fell over and gouged out a piece of ankle, followed by tonsillitis (really? I’m not ten anymore…) and then the exams! All the while I’ve been doing a course. So, no time to tell you about any of it.
The exams are going relatively smoothly. Not the actual exams, of course: we won’t know how smoothly they’ve gone until D-Day. Gulp (One child tells me in luxuriant detail how the paper was; what marks were dropped, and where. The other child responds to the ‘how was the exam?’ question with a declaration of: ‘good’ which invites no further response from the parent enquirer. If you know my children, it’ll be clear to you which is which!)
Having two teenagers doing exams at the same time could have been stressful and I won’t pretend there haven’t been tears (they were mine) but mostly there’s been an atmosphere of slight hysteria. It’s probably not terribly responsible or kind to laugh at anyone going stir crazy with revision but Daughter, in particular, has been first class entertainment.
Anyway, I plan to prioritise poor old Tea Stains because I miss her. I’ve a new theme planned for Wednesdays and to reinstate Friday Photo. If I’ve any readers left AT ALL, do please pop back again in the coming days.
