((My Mum works in the office of the school my brother and I used to go to. She's been there - oh, at least three years now, and compared to the last school she worked in she's both happier, better off and better paid, though not by much comparatively speaking. They don't give classroom assistants and office staff a lot of money.

However. Despite this, despite the fact that she was a stay-at-home mum for almost all my school life and had to get back into the (just then very intimidating) job market right after my Dad left, despite the fact that the jobs she'd had before these last two were babyitting a dear little girl, working in Tesco's when I was a baby and being a cleaning lady (which I thought was really cool, since the houses she worked at were usually really pretty), and despite worrying about having enough money to look after me and my brother...

...She's almost, almost paid off the entirety of the morgage on her house. In less than half the time her and Dad had worked out it would take.

And I'm so proud of her I could burst.

Love you, Mum.))
((Y'know, for all my brother's laptop and mine are the exact same make, model and whatever else it is yo might use to identify computers, it's interesting just how awkward it feels using his compared to mine. I know it's just because all my music, stories and IM logs aren't here (and because his 1/! key is missing and I have to push the little sucker-thing instead...) but it's quite disorienting to have a cat macro pop up as the desktop background instead of Thrust and Inferno.))
((That guy on the computer next to me hadn't better come back until and unless he's answered his bloody mobile. Seriously, if the phone keeps on ringing and ringing and ringing, either answer it or turn the phone off! *twitches*

In happier news, I've got dad a Father's Day present - and a sheet full of various Marvelverse pics to scan in on friday. I do believe I'm going to get squeed at by a Rath for at least one of them. ;)

Also also, a Virginficsnippet - that I really need to decide how to finish. It's either leave it as it is and leave a lot of loose ends hanging, which would be bad; jump to where I want to in the story, explain said loose ends and finish it off, which is what it's starting to look like I'll do; or write the entire series of events out which I'm rapidly lacking enthusiasm for and can't quite picture well enough to write anyway. Gragh. XP

Still. I have barley sugars and... *checks* twenty minutes of time left on the library internet, so it could be worse. ^_^ *...looks outside to see if it's raining yet*

...I don't believe it. It's just started to rain. *headdesk* Me and my big mouth!))

((EDIT: ...I need a Virgin icon or something. Come to think of it, I need a lot more emotion-indicator-type icons. And a Virgin one. And an Artemis one. And - I should just make a set of mood icons with all my fanchars, shouldn't I?))
