I've just got back from Portugal and I can't get used to how cold it is back here, even though I've only been gone a week.
Me and Mark went to a small fishing village in the Algarve called Alvor. It was a lovely place and was perfect for a relaxing break. It was so good to be away from work and just spend time with Mark. I did have a minor breakdown about feeling rubbishy and not being able to just one week of feeling normal. But other than that, we had a brilliant time and it went all too quick.
These are a few photos we took =]

Busy busy busy

I've been terrible at making posts on here and for the last week or so I've just been so busy and I'm exhausted. I went to Cheltenham last week to stay with a friend for a few days. It was lovely to finally meet her and we had a day out in the Cotswolds and then shopping in Cheltenham. But two long train journeys and a bus journey in 3 days has taken it out of me so I spent the weekend just taking it easy.

And then back to work yesterday. Oh the joys! I swear the kids get more ill-behaved every year. I had a kid kicking someone else in the face today after he'd thrown him on the floor! And they are 5-6 year olds would you believe?! I doubt the behaviour will get any better.
Oh and a pointless ultrasound at the hospital which showed absolutely nothing.

So there's my busy week. I'm going to see Dangerous liasons at the West Yorkshire Playhouse tomorrow with Mark so I better go get some rest.

These are a few pictures from my trip to my friends....
