I have been back at work this week after the long holiday. I have been exhausted for some reason since Saturday! I will be glad to shake this 'shattered' feeling. Euan started back to school yesterday and has a sore throat and a cough already! Henry started his 'A' levels today. He looked very smart indeed and had a long day, finishing an hour later that last year! He took his first 'Philosophy' class today where they discussed;
What is life?
What is knowledge?
When did space begin?
What is a void?
My Dad made me laugh when he suggested 'You tell em, I am trying to avoid these questions!'
The teacher said a 'Philosopher' is somebody who is annoying like Henry and has to keep questioning everything'. Henry said he asked the teacher 'Miss, was that a compliment?' She assured him it was! Hilarious, to philosophise about, 'Can a compliment be an insult?' 'Can an insult be a compliment?' I think I am going to enjoy this Philosophy lark!
I have got my weigh in tomorrow! Eeeek! This weight loss malarkey aint easy either. It is coming off slowly but surely but some weeks I just yoyo up and down for a couple of pounds. So far I have lost 29lbs in total. Euan did a bit of Philosophising and said 'Mom this Weight Watchers is weird, because every week you keep on losing weight but you aint getting any smaller!' Kids! Don't ya just have to love em! I am not sure if that was a compliment or an insult! I will lie awake and ponder it!
