(I tried posting this last night, but thanks to a massive thunderstorm, the network went down.)

Trying to read the threads at Slashdot make my head hurt. :-(

We went up to Camerton Primary this evening, to meet the teachers and find out what's expected of us as parents when Owen starts there in september.

It's the cutest little school, this year they have a confirmed intake of three, and two more possibles. Owen's class will consist of 3 Reception age children, 8 Year Ones and 6 Year Twos. The whole school is sixty children in total. My neice's school is one of the smaller Bristol schools, and their intake this september will be about a hundred.

One of the things that got mentioned was taking the classes out for walks, and the Teacher said how she always made sure her class was the first each Autumn to walk down the track to the Conker Tree, (Horsechestnut) so that the little ones get first go at the conkers. Made me all nostalgic. (I can remember coming home from school with conkers spilling out of my coat pockets, I'd collected so many.)

But it is really wierd to think he's going to be at School in November. We're going to be ordering his uniform soon, (the school emblem is a Miner's Lamp) and I still can't get my head around the fact that he's now longer a toddler.

One thing that's taken me by surprise is the sheer quality of the New Who fanfic thats appearing in the comms; the good stuff, at the moment, is out numbering the bad stuff. I know the bad stuff's out there, (I had a brief look over at ff.net and eek!) but it doesn't seem to be as pervasive as it normally is. Do people agree, or is my perception wacked? And if you do agree, any theories as to why?

Couple of recs...

Once Upon a Time by [livejournal.com profile] tangledwood - Jabe fic, spoilers up to The End of The World. Absolutely stunning look at Jabe, and making her death a lot harder to bear.

Breaking the Rules by [livejournal.com profile] boro_girl - Do not read until you have seen Parting of the Ways. Why Rose makes the choices she does.

And lastly [livejournal.com profile] mythichistorian has got four parts written of a Doctor Who/Buffy crossover. Go read. Now.

(Oh, and if you haven't read [livejournal.com profile] sangga's Deshabille, why not?)

Is it Christmas yet?

[livejournal.com profile] ffutures pointed out the cutest Dalek Mood theme ever. I'm seriously thinking of using it, even though it took me forever to set up my current theme.

Sorry, more Doctor Who.

This has been bugging me fore the last couple of days, but I haven't seen anyone else raise it...Question about PotW )

Also, why are people saying that's not Billie's voice?Read more... )

AlsoSpoilery GIP for POTW )

Someone in [livejournal.com profile] galactic_conman has posted a tentive list of Episode Titles for the second season, and I really didn't think it was possible for me to look forward to it any more.  Is it Christmas yet?

I've just wasted far too much time searching for Doctor/Rose/Jack fic.  There is not nearly enough.  Spoilerish for Parting of the Ways )

I saw the Chrismas Invasion teaser on the BBC to night too. God, they're taunting us aren't they? (Is it Christmas yet?)Yes I will ask this every time I talk about Doctor Who

One of the BBC new feeds headlines was Saudis dismiss Rice's criticism

My first thought was the Anne Rice had got bored with Jesus and was moving on to Muslims. Well, with her nothing's too batshit insane is it?

We're going to the Live 8 concert in Hyde Park! Doug's youngest Brother had tickets for him and his wife, but now can't go, so they're giving them to us! Eeeeee! Pretty excited because I've never been to any kind of big concert before, and this one is kinda big.

Roses fight back. I beat the bastards and they're now looking neat and tidy (ish), but they made me pay for my victory.

I just excavated a thorn from my thumb. (My arms are also scratched to buggery).

I think parents should be awarded badges like in Brownies and Scouts. Tonight I totally won my "Getting sleeping child out of wet pyjamas and his bed stripped without waking him or his brother. I rule as a Mama!

***

Still obsessed with Parting of the Ways.  I rewatched it yesterday and found myself even more emotional than I was on Saturday.  It's also been cool to see Doctor Who take over my friends list, a feat I would not have believe possible at the beginning of the year.  Is it Christmas yet?
