I shouldn't really be writing this right now...

Wednesday, 1 July 2009
Yep, that's right. I shouldn't really be writing this right now. Right now I should be cramming my head full of facts, figures and arguments that I can present to an appeal board this afternoon, whilst persuading them that my daughter should be allowed into the school she wants to go to.

Hmmm... it's the day of reckoning.. school appeal day. I don't mind telling you I am absolutely bloody petrified! I have never 'presented' anything before - I have no idea how to use powerpoint. I have never spoken publicly before, never debated, never ever had anything in my life happen that will give me a single solitary shred of experience to cling to for this situation.


I'm scared.

No, stop being a Baby! You have to do this, Katrina. You ARE a grown up... you may spend most of your life in denial about it, but accept it this time. If you don't do this now you will never forgive yourself, and Edie will never forgive you.

Even if it fails (don't even say that word) at least you can sleep at night knowing you have tried. That's what parents do for their kids isn't it? Kids take you out of your comfort zone - you would try to move a mountain for your child wouldn't you? Isn't that right?

Am I going insane with nerves? Probably.

What was the point of this blog post? I was supposed to post pictures of the new Storm Bags that have just arrived at the shop, and some of the new jewellery. No, just a random bunch of waffling about how nervous I am.

I'll give you some nice pics of pretty things tomorrow. Today, I'm afraid, is not about work. Today is about Edie. Focus, use the nerves, breathe deeply and get back to the figures. Blog later.

Thank you and goodnight (well it's technically morning, but you know what I mean..)

Peace x

Oh I hope it went well?????!!!! Seriously though HOW can they resist your charms? If all else fails show some leg - and hope the female headmistress is a lesbian:)

Thanks sweetie - sadly they DID resist my charms - we were unsuccessful. Oh well - onwards and upwards - I'm a big believer in fate. I'm sure these things do all happen for a reason (just have to find out what it is, still)... ;)
