It's a funny old world.....

The past few weeks have been emotionally charged as I continue to get to grips with the downs I experienced towards the end of the summer....I'm slowly getting myself back on an even keel, it's not easy and I'm blessed to have a very understanding wife!  The plans for primary teaching are still firm and I'm hoping to get the GCSE's underway before the end of the year.

Positively though, Mrs Jackcabnory (follow her here on twitter..... she gives good tweet!) has finally started the sessional work back with the local library service, this is exactly what she was doing in a fulltime capacity before we had our two boys.   She has been doing quite a few days and we've been able, with my work flexibility, to ring the changes quite a bit and gives me the chance to do the school run......and get more practice at the diplomacy needed with a 7 & 10 yr old!!  If all goes well she could soon be working fulltime and we will be able to get ourselves financially more black than red!

On the subject of Mrs J, she sells greetings cards, gift wrap etc, so have a look at her site here (publicity push over!)

We've had some good and bad news in terms of new arrivals.....I'll start with the bad news,  my youngest brother and his wife, who already have a nearly 2yr old boy, announced a few weeks ago that they were expecting no2.  Sadly they discovered this week that the baby will not make it, he has a disdended bowel (enlarged) and it has already burst.  It will be what they class as an "assisted miscarriage"...........

But the good news is that we today visited Mrs J's younger sister, and had the pleasure of plenty of cuddles with our newest family member, Jack.  He's a gorgeous little boy, born with downs syndrome,   into a loving family where he has two elder sisters to dote on him!   We're very lucky to now have a total of 10 neices and nephews between our collective 5 siblings........

So, I'm going to sign off here, leaving you a picture of the new addition........thanks for reading, and as ever I will endeavour to post more frequently....
