    The Queen !!

    I'm not a Royalist but have to thank the Queen for an extra day off today which means I can listen to Scott!
  2. Unfortunately you don't get paid for it so getting a wage again will be nice! Yeah, I'm dreading that part of it. Looking forward to getting that Friday feeling again though!
  3. I am going back to work on Friday after being off on maternity leave for over a year. Feeling quite emotional about it.........
  4. A very belated Congratulations Danni! Pixie Lou is just beautiful! Hope you are all well. x Sorry, I've already taken that name!!
  5. Everything in my life rocks right now!
  6. I'm not a fan of the trailer for the same reasons many other people have mentioned. It's too long and it's really cringey, I really dislike all the Braveheart/fire in our bellies nonsense and personally find the whole thing embarrassing. Why do people feel the need to make a big deal of the fact that it's in Scotland?
  7. Happy belated birthday DC, hope you had a fab day!
  8. So you are saying that you had the chance to get a degree which would have perhaps have widened your employment choices? However, you chose not too? Instead you moan about your 'lower paid job'. Obviously going to university is not always the best choice for everyone, nor is it guaranteed to get you a good job but you are slagging off people who have done so and saying that they don't deserve to be paid better than you. Perhaps you are the one who is afraid of a little hard work. Indeed! From what I can see from your posts on here, you are unable to listen - maybe this is why 'you still can't count properly'.
  9. Clearly teachers hours cannot be cut but jobs have been cut like every other area in the public sector, resources have been cut so much that many schools don't even have pencils for the children to write with and teachers are having to buy in school resources themselves. Staffing has also been cut so there are less and less Pupil Support Assistants - and before you say we shouldn't need assistants, they are for the children. With inclusion there are more and more pupils with learning disabilities in mainstream schools so extra staff are needed to support the pupils. What you fail to realise is that many teachers take work home with them and can be working until 10 o'clock at night and often work weekends. You talk about how much teachers earn - we have to study for 4 years at university to get a degree and work really hard. Things have changed dramatically since you were at school Viv and the work load on teachers is high. People outside the profession don't realise this and those who rant on about how easy the job is are just showing their ignorance. We do long hours and the fact that you don't know this only highlights your severe lack of knowledge. So you believe everything you read do you? I think it's obviously you who hasn't looked at the situation properly. Pffft. You are so unaware that it's actually hilarious. I'm interested in what you do for a living? Would it be acceptable for me to brand everyone in your line of work as ignorant fools? I think not, it's just nonsense that you say every teacher is the same as the one you knew.
  10. Haha, indeed! Maybe if I start getting a bit more sleep I'll not be too tired to come on the laptop at night.
  11. I don't really go on any other forums, only on facebook and twitter on my phone. I find UM quite difficult to read on my phone hence the reason I'm not on here much these days.
  12. Stunning engagement ring Bumbly! Congrats again.
  13. You've really not got a clue. What a lot of nonsense, it's actually laughable! If teaching is so easy, the pension is so good etc then why are you not a teacher? Honestly, ignorance doesn't come much greater than this.
  14. Fantastic news!! Are you keeping to your word of having the cats as ring bearers?! Congrats Emma, hope you are out celebrating tonight?!
  15. Happy Birthday Tim, hope you enjoyed your bacon butty and are having a fab day with your lovely lady!
  16. Thanks everyone! I have put loads on facebook!
  17. Thanks very much everyone! I had the best birthday ever with my 2 boys.
  18. Thanks everyone for all your well wishes it's very much appreciated We finally got home from the hospital last Friday and Ben is doing really well! We are so delighted to have him home safe and healthy.
  19. I'm sure he'll not really be doing much in terms of running the cafe. I think he's a great choice as he has a big following and should attract a lot of people.
  20. A lot of the people who were YV regulars are off to uni now and are perhaps not at a computer when the show is on.
  21. If I lived a bit closer - plus not stuck in hospital- I'd definitely go along to give my support! I'm glad to see Scott is using his 'celeb' status to help such a worthwhile cause. I work with autistic children and also have a brother on the spectrum so it's something that's very close to my heart. I hope the cafe is a huge success! Good on you Scott!
  22. The Batman song they have made out of it is hilarious! The usual dodgy trumpet sounds included.
  23. So sorry to hear this. Glad you are going to see a doctor, I hope it helps you. Definitely get off facebook, I have friends who have had to do this for a while to help get their head straight. Hope 2011 only gets better for you. X
