That was a GOOD night! lol!

AC and I were collected, and we went bowling with the armourers.  We had such an ace time, and they had some things for AC as well (yes, pictures later!) and he loved it.

They are a bunch of lads who know that family isn't what's on paper, and I love them for it.

But now I have to go to bed, or else I shall be like nothing on earth in the morning..... lol!

One hundred empty chairs

One hundred empty chairs
At one hundred not full tables
Tell the story of the war that isn't done.
So many aching hearts
So many unshed tears
But so many smiles still making Christmas fun.

One hundred unpulled crackers
One hundred still wrapped gifts
Tell the story of the soul whose gone ahead.
So many sleeping children,
So many weeping wives,
Still with so many words of love unsaid.

But more than thousand wounded
In a thousand beds
Sleep under medic watch at last tonight
And a myraid prayers are said
As a thousand hands are held
And aching bodies carry on their silent fight.

A hundred thousand bodies
In a hundred thousand beds
Speak with a twenty different tongues in desert sand,
And a hundred thousand families wait,
As emails zip back and forth,
To bring them home, alive and whole, as planned

A million parcels sent
Brighten up the bleakest time

As a hundred thousand families wait, watch and pray
But a hundred empty chairs
At a hundred not full tables
Will break a nations heart this Christmas Day

Of VLE's and friends

Yesterday I finally completed the VLE roll-out document.  It was good, it went ok.  I had a meeting about 1-1 teaching.  It was good, it went ok.

I can't write about tonight because the AC is pottering about behind me, building bases and so on.  It's going to be good though.

I also did more writing last night, and it went ok as well.  I think.
