I was resisting Debbie’s number of GSCE’s being reduced by Kimbolton

Settling the girls down on their journeys to and from school, taking Sam accordingly and more long training walks for him as well as a shopping visit to St Neots with Diana.

I was resisting Debbie’s number of GSCE’s being reduced by Kimbolton. Today saw the first air attack has taken place on Iraq since Bill Clinton has become US President.

Awake on time and just needed a wash and shave as I had a bath and hair-wash last night. Breakfast with the whole family and then out to feed and exercise Sam. I took him along to the bus stop so as to be able to kiss goodbye to Della as she started her journey off to school. Then a long walk across Mill Meadow opposite, getting back before the onset of rain that claimed the later dog-walkers. A little time on my tax affairs and then off to St Neots with Diana, treating her to a coffee first in Brackenbury's and then touring the building societies whilst she did the week's shopping at Waitrose.

Some organic bread and vegetables but pained to see just how many colourings, preservatives and other additives were in the processed food. Home for a soup and sandwich lunch and then out again with Sam, this time to the gravel pits, tracking muntjac deer again. For this evening's run, I took Della along to get her more used to Sam and to try to make him calm down more in the presence of other people. Both girls arrived home from the school bus in a state tonight. Debbie was having a fit about the state of her hair, saying that she wanted to wash it every morning because it was too greasy, and Della was upset because Debbie had run off away from her at the bus stop. We sorted them both out eventually.

The school are saying Debbie has to reduce her subjects studied down to eight/nine and I wrote a letter saying that I wanted her to study more to GCSE level. We shall have a meeting with her house-master to discuss the matter. Della was a bit more relaxed this evening and, after playing games on my computers, she went off to bed earlier than of late. The first air attack has taken place on Iraq since Bill Clinton has become US President.
