Mixed Races and Radio Switchoff

Today was the Junior Primary Sports Day at which we were in attendance from the first of the races. Things were run with normal efficiency, and it was entertaining for kids and parents alike, if a bit stressful for the teachers to keep everything together.

Running is not Jeneva’s top sporting thing, but she nevertheless acquitted herself well in the three races she competed in.  We enjoyed watching her put heart and soul into it in spite of having a rather painful bruised leg from a recent fall.

Her house had a convincing victory. *smug smirk*

From school, it was straight off to the last of my ten doses of radiotherapy. Now I will be allowed to come off the boil. This time, I seem to have escaped with little fried skin, so it shouldn’t take long. Only now was I informed that feelings of lassitude (if not laddietude) and a desire to peck at small quantities of food rather than large meals, and some dithery-headedness, are all normal. I wish they’d told me before.

Now knowing it has been expected of me, I had a sleep on getting home!

    Hey, Col! Lovely victory for your grandbaby’s team! She’s a cute one!

    I also like the way you embedded the slide show – appreciation from a co-webbie!

    They could have told you the thing about sleeping sooner! My gosh, can’t believe they didn’t bother. At least now you know. Sleep regenerates. Our cell-regenerating enzymes step up their actions multifold during sleep.

    Let’s hope that that completes the course of burnings, and no further ones will be required. Here’s to your complete and speedy recovery. All this while forging ahead with publications and musical instruction books – I take my hat off to you.

  7. Now those are athletes worth cheering for. So cute (and determined – well done!)
    Glad the your series of toasting procedures is about done. May better ( and more comfortable) days await
