Jen - Musical Education

The kids are getting edumacated this evening. Dan downloaded some old music videos and played them for the kids at dinner time...

Charley Lownoise & Mental Theo - Wonderful Days
Mr. Oizo - Flat Beat
Apollo 440 - Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Dub
Underworld - Born Slippy

Some old favourites.

Dan: mistaken for a grownup

Xmas was lots of fun, with all three kids now fully comprehending the gift extravaganza that is Annual Gift Giving Day. I was mistaken for an adult, and got cool things like a coffee machine while everyone else got all the lego. Ate entirely too much and am now suffering from a surfeit of tasty food.

Jen - Present giving

Had a great Burn Family Xmas late lunch yesterday - piles and piles of presents. The kids were reasonably well behaved and not too ridiculously spoilt!

This morning has been more relaxed. But now we are off to my side of the family and I'm sure it will be chaos and bedlam.

Merry Christmas folks.

YL - Merry Christmas & political pawnage

It was so good to see everyone. It is true, I still exist. Although even Dante said "I'm sure you were just a figment of my imagination!" And Atticus was sure I was "Cushion". At least that's a solid object right? Merry Christmas all!

However, work is not so pleasant. After weeks, people's true colours are showing up and it's not enjoyable to be used as a political pawn in someone else's inter-departmental games or to be used as a scapegoat/buffer to cover up your fallibilities or take the blame.

Oh and for the record, I don't always have to agree with you just because you're senior in age/years of medical training.
