Sun is trying to shine out early this Friday morning. HeidiHill, loved your photos and you look terrific. Living near the channel helps this water sign to cope. Falconer, good on the running and yoga & BB helped me to get shoulders back and the hip-to-hip stretched across, flexing and over time, and released some scar adhesions. Peregrine, hope all goes smooth for the revision and nips tomorrow. NatMary, hehe, trash talk, love it! Ruth, terrific photo and Ginger, are you back in the classroom next week?
Ok, well, results of exams came in yesterday and let's just say it's been a huge mothering challenge. My DS tanked terribly (didn't see this coming) on physics so he did not get his first choice uni yet did get his insurance choice. Now, we are dealing with known as clearing - sort of. It is a way for universities to fill any spaces they have left for the new academic year. You call schools and over the phone see if you can get a place - sight unseen; a real last minute scramble. DS has not given up his one offer yet sent his portfolio to two other unis to see if he gets an offer. Last night at BB, one woman said to me, it will never get easy to deal with our children's disappointments, even as adults. I think she is right. Was so hoping DS would nail it and the shock was starting to wear off, by yesterday evening. So life trudges on, and I need to get a lesson plan worked up for Pilates at noon. I signed up for a two day course in October, called, Move It or Lose It, a module training for group fitness aimed roughly at the 75+, including 'elderly and frail' as much of it chair based or assisted standing. This is a class to be taken into the community, such as a village hall. It dovetails with the qualification I'm getting soon for exercise and older populations. Hope the sun lasts and feels like autumn here. Have a terrific start to the weekend everyone.
