F prompt - Dancing
So today's prompt comes from that website again,  and it's very different to the previous one.  I am not a dancer, unless between the 5th and 7th pints of the evening, as I have very little natural rhythm and flow.  I have hardly any grace.  In spite of tha...

Do you find war exciting and stimulating?
This was a question asked of me by a forum that I am part of, when I was discussing the rights of pacifists to protest, and the irony that is that they have the right to protest because others died in war for them.  At this point I was asked "Do you find wa...

Byron - "If I don't write to empty my mind, I go mad."
Apparently, Lord Byron said that. I say apparently, because I wasn't there, and I read that on the internet.  I have been doing really well on the Hal Elrod Miracle Morning idea, but today I had to get up and write first as I had a weird set of dreams last ...

Rubbish at rules.
We've just spent the weekend with J's parents and T-Boy.  I am grateful for being able to spend the weekend there, as it means a lot less driving, but at the same time the rules and the conversation are sometimes difficult to deal with.  I know it's because...

Today is another day
After yesterday (or was it Thursday's?) depressing post, I am feeling much better. I cannot change things from the outside, only from the inside.  Why should I give up the job I love without fighting for it a bit?  In fact, if I love it so much, if I feel l...

Leaving teaching?
I have never felt more like leaving teaching than I do at the moment.  I won't, because I love the children, and I love actually teaching.  But I could.  I could phone in with stress and never go back.  I could go in today, walk out tearful and never go bac...
