Having been woken at 2 am by G, in a complete twit about whether she'd been disqualified from her History GCSE for writing a flippant remark, I feel like it must be nearly wine o'clock about now. It is not. Boo.
G did amazingly in her exams. Top marks. She is brilliant. I could have done without all the worry that went with it but am just too burnt out to complain about the pressure put on people at some a young age. Instead she is off to a party and then to the South of France with her brilliantly wonderful Godfather tomorrow.
The steroids - qualify that: steroid - no s - seems to be helping with pain but also pumping the brain a bit too much. I feel like I am some invincible caped crusader, to be honest and am seriously on the edge of snappy bitchiness. Thinking about getting a scold's bridle for a bit.
Poor HWISO is home because it is raining, so I decided to teach him how to do on-line banking for the farm. He was actually doing fine, despite my best attempts at distraction with head-desking and loud sighs. He really got the hang of it after I flounced out of the room, vaguely hand-waving and saying "If you're not going to actually LISTEN to what I am saying...."
He is a saint. Well, sometimes, he is a saint.
Now, I just need to find some way to Calm Down a bit......
