So, evening or indeed, afternoon *delete as applicable....... here comes another load of waffle about my life in the time since last I blogged.
A week's a long time in politics it has been said, and an even longer week when you have prepubescent small people in your house! bless him (!) our eldest continues to struggle with his emotions, blowing hot and cold. It requires diplomacy of a level normally displayed by Kofi Annan and other high ranking UN officials....I'm sure I was as bad if not worse at his age, so best not to throw stones etc!
The thoughts uppermost in my mind, have been the need to get a regular study routine in place for my three GCSE's. As I'm sure I've said, I am prone to procrastination (get on with it!) and need to get over this and the worry that I have bitten off more than I can chew.....must focus my mind on the fact that I have a better than average ability to retain information, and that this will see me right in my endeavours.
But lord almighty, how hard is the maths! I think I'm probably putting it on an educational pedestal, but I am struggling to get my grey cells round it. I've been thinking that it is a "pure" subject and, unlike the science and English language, is not really attached to anything specific at the moment. I see it more as a theoretical thing, rather than practical......I'm sure this will come to pass.
Anyhoo, I am getting used to the new work/home balance that I have now, not working Monday, having a shorter working day on Tuesday and then knocking out longer days on Wed-Fri. The boys seem to have got used to me being around more, and the difference between mine and mums ways of doing things.
I'm still doing my running, and really starting to get into my stride, excuse the pun. This week I've been out twice, each time a 5 mile run, the second of which was a longer Thameside route, taking me from Borough High St to Lambeth Bridge on the south side, then over to the north side and back along, using Southwark to get back south, and then to the old office and a hot shower! I'm hoping to apply for a half marathon around June, which I hope I can complete in around 2.5hrs.
Going to finish now, just a quick advert for any generous souls reading, my wife is training for her 3rd London Marathon in April, and is raising funds for two charities, please click here to read more and donate if you possibly can.
Cheers dear reader
