finished first cup of coffee (first off a million..?) and a loaf of raisin bread with a lot of butter!

i've been on the internet, trying to find a simple and short bus route for my kids to school.. they normally go with bicycle ( less then 10 minutes to school) but the snow and cold are here to stay (according to the weatherforecast) and it's a little dangerous, dont you all ,mothers, agree? so today my love has driven them to school, but being all in 3 different schools, it's not the best solution..

see you later, have to be at work at 11 and still have to wash my hair

Hello all!

I finished my first day at my new school. Apart from te having to get up and out of bed at -7 outside it was a good day. I've only met three classes up to now but all seems good. The staff also seem very supportive and from the way things were said looks as if it could be til the summer! So fantastic news (maybe persuade hubby dear that another u2 concert is due!!!)

So very happy at the moment!

Hope you are all well - did you get the bus route sorted Barbara? if your roads are like ours at the moment you need to make sure they aren't walking/cycling too far

take care all

glad you enjoyed being back at school zhivvy!! but i do feel, for poor annette... being in school isn't always that easy... for both sides!

i did find a good route for the kids... they'll be on the bus for aprox. 5 minutes, daughter(lena)  has to get of the bus a 250 meters from her school! thats nice, isnt it?

the oldest (jona) has to walk for another 5 minutes to be at his school. so i went to the store after work an got 2 passes (8 euros=10 rides; nice deal!) and now my oldest is being obstinate (is that the word?) and says he'd rather go on foot, cause he doesn't like being on a bus?! (and last year he was nagging my head about buying him a season ticket so he could take the bus when it rained... i guess it's pubertyeyes.gif... i dont get him sometimes! no problem... 1 extra ticket for lena to use when it rains (so my love doesnt have to drive her around so much...)happy.gif

Love the views of teenagers barbara - always the opposite of what you want them to do!! Being back and working again felt nice today although tired - and yes do feel sorry for Annette being a pupil not much fun, no matter how much you enjoy school! And to make my day even better my best friend who now lives in America is on his way to stay for the night before he returns to Washington at the end of the week!! Yeah!!!! I miss hims loads when he's not here. I got to see him Christmas day too - as his parents and my parents are best friends etc... So looking forwrds to a couple of drink (non alcohol as drving) in a nce snug pub later.

Hope you all have fun too

sounds like we have all survived the "first day back" bits....Zhiv, so glad the job is good....!! Of course another show is well deserved.

The U2 Plane was here in Minneapolis over the weekend!! A friend posted a pic of it....sigh...so close and so far.

 

no drinks for me tonight. Dinner with eldest daughters Girl Scout troop tonight at a cafe with wifi so we can set up their electronic cookie sales accounts (fancy!)...and then on call till morning. Have a feeling I will be working.

 

A most elegant red cardinal just appeared at the window, totally bold against the snow. Wish he had waited for my camera....

so my daughter went to busstop at 7.55 (bus was supposed to drive by at 8.01am, so right on time)

she's 13 , mum doesn't have to come along then.... but of course i stood in front of window and at 8.03 i saw the bus drive ... ran to the busstop (130 meters) to make sure she was on it! went upstairs to my love (still waking up) singing: she's on the bus! our little girl is on the bus!' i'm so happy, cause she's warm and dry on the bus' (my love looked a bit funny, like i was overreacting or something?)

so woke up the youngest and made coffee... and received a textmssage at my cellphone saying:' mum, i'm on the wrong bus!' i did think she was joking but i texted back:' how could that happen!!'

she texts me back; 'i'm at the railwaystation? Now what?!' so i run back to my love (has one leg outta bed by then..) and yell: 'she's at the station, what should she do??' he answers very calm; 'she'd better start walking then...' (fathers can be so c, c &c)so at that moment my phone rings and she 's panicking a bit...i ask her if she knows how to walk to school from there, and explain the route (she gots really bad sense of direction- has it from my mum..) and i tell her not to worry, i'll call her school to explain why she's late...(it's a 10-15 minute walk, through the long shoppingstreet and across the marketplace)

i did call the busline too, and they cant see how she didnt pas her stop (she claims the bus took another route and didnt ride by the school?)

i did tell her (several times!!) to check with the busdriver when she got on , but she admit's now she didnt do it cause that might be weird (!?)...

one things for sure; being 13 or not.. tomorrow i'm with her at the busstop, and i'll ask the driver to put her of at the right spot...

sorry for the long story, but the moms outthere will understand me rambling on...maybe this should be in the 'some days she's so dumb' thread...though...

 For now I'm having a cup of coffee with Parisian almond cream-flavored creamer.  As for the local weather in my area, we've been having a lot of rain courtesy of el nino which is a relief because last year I was up to my neck in snow.
