Change of plan

I went to the computer class again yesterday,you sit on the bus ,idly watching the little town pass by the bus windows ,AND  THEN we pull up at the school ,and on clamber about four hundred,school children ,ages ranging from I suppose eleven to............young ladies and men I mean these lovely young things arent school kids !! of course they are ,I sit back and listen to them amused by their snippets of conversations ,their boy/girl  friends ,one young fella saying" I dont love Sophie any more! " he was all of twelve I would think ! A couple of boys discussing science ,and then another young lady ,"Oh he still rings me up ,but hes gay now ,and so is his cousin ".and then opposite me this tiny little thing  all of eleven I would think,she had lovely blonde hair right down her back ,she was covered in all this beautiful young skin ,proceeds to plaster her little face ,from her compressed powder compact .Oh bless em they certainly made a boring journey less so !Who was it said youth is wasted on the young ,all that energy I could so put that to good use .(There was really only about fourty on the bus !!)

Today I woke as Maurice was leaving at about five fourtyfive feeling awful ,yes Id succumbed to the bug that had plagued him ,so I stayed in bed and went back to sleep untill about nine o clock when I rang in sick,I dont like letting them down ,but it would not be fair to inflict this bug on the vunerable group I would be working with .So instead of sitting on the buses riding along the roads and droves ,beside dykes and drains (Fen talk )I was snuggled up in my bed feeling sorry for myself AHH.

Yesterday when I wrote Im learning more about everyone,I was going to tell you Id recently learned  that Ally and I share the same name ,it is my second name and her first,I have spoken to her and we thought it might be rather fun if you could guess what the name is ,of course we have told some of you but ,you wont tell if you already know , of course my sister knows ,and she wont say anything ,just a bit of fun  folks ,So what is Ally short for ?

   Enjoy the evening everyone     Jan xx

Well most would have Ally as short for Alison but it could be alexandra or something totally unrelated LOL...Hope you're feeling better soon    Caff xxx

How about Alexandra?  I hope you feel better soon Jan,  I feel a bit `off` myself at the moment. I know I`m going down with something, it`s taking it`s time to come out though!  :o(

Know what you mean about ringing in sick, but really is the best when you are working with vulnerable people.  Hope you feel better soon {{{}}}

Alison? Alex?You were right to stay in bed with your bug. . . hope you are feeling better soon.

Alice, Alicia, Alexandra.  There are quite a few names I have heard shortened to Ally.  Had to laugh at the conversation " oh he's gay now - priceless".  Shame they grow up so fast, being a child is a precious thing but now they know it all at seven. Sighs.

I love to listen to part conversations, the ones you overheard were great "He's Gay now" liked that one....Glad it made your journey less boring...Wise to stay at home rather than take that bug to work -  and passing it on to others. Ally

Take care ....Love Jeanxx

I want to say Alison but that seems so obvious LOL.............Interesting bus journey you had there ;-)  My sister whose 7, when she first started school came home and told us she had a boyfriend.  They really don't waste any time do they?  Hope your feelin' better. xx

Not going to guess the name but I so enjoy your journal..  This energy gave me the courage to "go back to bed" and just say sorry I need the rest.  Thanks
