Getting Ready To Plough

Quite frankly I'd like nothing better

Than to close the curtains

And be laying on the sofa

Underneath a wool blanket

And clutching a hot water bottle

But that cannot happen


As in times of old

Today is Plough Monday

And just happens to be

The day I return to paid work

After the Winter Festivities

Nursing a virus of some sort

I've elected to meet my learner

Away from the nursing home he works in

But meet I must

Funding and such things

I do not understand

But must obey


Hubby did indeed return to the homestead

Chilled to the core last evening

After a charity tractor run

I hope he doesn't suffer

From his adventures later


The skies are a pure grey

The trees are swaying

The ground looks cold

The word RAW springs to mind

I must remember to sprinkle

Fresh bird food around the garden


Heidi did get out for a run yesterday

She loves to follow me up the hill

I drive slowly

In a deserted lane

Far away from too much civilisation

It's not as good as a woodland walk together

But better than nothing

And keeps her heart healthier

Than pretending to be

A fireside rug


Well I really must prepare

To meet my learner

Files and bits of paper

Need sorting

  1. Doesn't take long for everything to get back to normal does it?
    My workers are back at work today....very grudgingly....and I am back to having time and space to get on with my jobs.
    I much prefer the snuggling.

    I do hope you get rid of your virus soon you poor girl.
    Lots of Hugs-x-

    1. Almost sure I'll enjoy it once I get there...just feel guilty for having some time off! x

    2. Hi. I assume from your posts that you are a QCF/Skills Assessor. I this job for several years and was often bewildered by the funding process. I often felt under pressure to 'deliver' and to then pressurize students into working faster. So I do understand your gripes, especially when students don't turn up! Still, I do miss some of the work I did. Best wishes for a happy new year.

    3. You assume correctly! I do love my job though it can be frustrating at times x
