I supose part of the problem is in making sure I can keep doing the 2 hours a day at work. However on a couple of days (including Saturday, at home) I did more ... and regretted it. However I did 2.5 hours this morning, and other than doing a load of shopping I am not going to do anything else other than type this up, and catch up with the meme.
Tomorrow I shall be doing another 2 hours as I have a dental appt as well (which is a 25 min drive away), so need to be a good girl. The advantage of my zero-hours contract is that I arrive when I can, and leave when I need to. So it's been a good stepping stone. However next week I need to start setting the alarm earlier to get into work at the proper time.
Jiffy's ears & skin is much better (thanks to those who asked), but it is hard to watch him really slowing up. I know he will be 14 in May, but still hard to see the reality of this.
Well, I had better catch up ....
8 It’s International Women’s Day. Who is a woman you greatly admire and why do you admire her?
Someone who left school at almost 15, yet never stopped learning. If you want to read the eulogy I wrote for her when she died it is here
9 What’s your favorite movie quote?
I don't tink I have one ... although the Gone with the Wind one of "Tomorrow is another day" is pretty good
10 What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of fear?
Loosing family and friends ... especially if someone is hurt near me, and I can't help them
11 What’s your first and middle name(s), if you’re comfortable saying? Do you think the meanings of your names matches who you are?
We did the bit about meaning, didn't we? However Deborah is a Bible name (Mum & Dad wanted us all to have names from the Bible, which we do). Deborah was first mentioned in Genesis as a nurse, which is what I am now! And secondly as the only female Judge in the book of the same name. I am not a femenist, and her other description was that she sang a song on the victory of the army (I can't sing!!). Jacqueline is actually the feminine of James, my Dad's middle name.
I almost had Victoria, as well. And in fact that would have been good as it's the middle name of both my grandmothers, and I was the only girl in the family.
12 What’s your birth order in your family? Do you think it affected who you are as an adult?
I am the oldest, then Nick, then Tim
I was often blamed for chaos ... but maybe it was my fault some times!!
