Breaking lose

The launch of the day-job website went off fairly painlessly on Wednesday evening - so much so that they didn't require my presence at work through the evening - though I was on-call. You can look at it at http://www.diploma-support.org/ - I created the "My Support" section and the consortium select system.

We're already off and running on development for the next major release in six weeks.

You'd think with that off my plate the stress levels would be going down - but no.

Obviously we're gearing up for the Monsters shoot tomorrow and Sunday. We lost all our schoolroom extras on Wednesday! And several of the Daughter's production team suddenly found they have things they're doing.

These things are sent to try us.

The Boy got back from Pinewood Studios yesterday and we found out that he and his team had made it through the first two rounds of the new Bamzooki - which means he is in the semi-finals and has to go back for filming on Saturday (tomorrow!).

But the BBC lost one of their chaperones to family problems, and had no one available to bring the kids. So the Teacher has to do it, and they're travelling down again tonight because the day starts too early to travel in the morning. (And what would the Beeb have done if it had been impossible for anyone to bring these semi-finalists?)

On the positive side the Boy was also inteviewed for Blue Peter with his team.

It's all go...
