Hello, it's me!
Well my plans for the evening went out of the window. I had hoped to get a few hours on the essay that I failed to finish at the weekend, but no.
Ah well, there is always tomorrow.
One thing that I did manage to do was start a game of Bingo at work. Inspired by Terri's email bingo game, I have started one for all of the staff and students in our department. To make it easy to run and play, each player uses their name. Each day I randomly select a letter (using a thing I put together in Excel) and email it to everyone. I am keeping track of the results but will not inform someone if they win - they need to claim it! OK, some people who have long names will be at a disadvantage, but it is just a bit of fun and seems to be going down well so far.
My daughter is spending this week working at a vets, watching some stuff and doing general chores, looking after the animals (dogs, cats, a swan...) etc. She is really enjoying it and it is great experience for her college course in animal care. Her first day was the hardest, when they had to put down 3 dogs for different reasons...
There isn't much snow left now, but the weather is very cold for here, lingering around freezing and dropping as low as -11 in some places at night. Another few inches of snow is forecast for later this week...
Better sign off now - time for bed!
