In a surprising turn of events, my .. well the father of my children came by for a visit and decided to take all of the kids off my hands for an entire weekend.

So I'm here by myself, and cleaning the house because that's what needs to be done while they're away. Sometimes I think I should get out and do things, but then I look at the state of my house. Truth is, I wouldn't have minded just spending some family time with them and Harry. But apparently that's not what he wants, so I'm by myself for a bit. I don't know how he's alone in that house of his.

Recommendations for what to do when you have the house to yourself? Besides throw parties, I'm far too old for that.

This is one of my favourite times of year.

Half-price chocolate! It's a lovely, lovely thing...

Happy Valentine's Day. Don't really get this holiday. All the pink. Bleh. But chocolate is good. Did our photoshoots for the holiday back before Christmas, so I'm over it. We're shooting summer ads now.

Dunno what you've got planned for the weekend, but I thought maybe we could have a get-together. Talk about the dreams, and stuff?

Hello! Ladies, gentlemen, strange creatures of indeterminate origin... my name is the Doctor (or at very least, I'd be obliged if you'd call me that), and I'm very, very glad to meet you all!

If anyone could tell me if there's a place that sells jelly babies in this state, I would be very, very appreciative. Running a little low, you see.

I had a strange dream.

Tell me more about the Blue Box.

I've finally been able to cook a little something without burning it and having my children throw up. I count that as a plus.

Most of them were sick this past time, and that was.. something. I haven't ever had a house full of sick people like that before.

It's time for me to go into another job though. Something else to investigate. My last investigation will be on the television soon. I hope everyone enjoys it.

I had the strangest dream last night. Not only was I in England, but I had a pretty wicked English accent. But that wasn't the strange part; no not at all. The strange part was that, the hospital I worked at got transported to the moon and invaded by giant rhino/aliens. They were looking for some other alien. And there was man there who called himself The Doctor. He had a blue suit and red chucks and some device that he called a Sonic Screwdriver. And he kissed me.

The other weird part about it was that my parents were divorced and my dad was dating some blond bimbo. Leo was turning twenty one, which is odd since that was a couple of years ago.

Then The Doctor showed up while my entire family was having an argument outside and he had a...a spaceship that looked like a blue police box and he offered to take me on a trip.

I think I'm going to chalk it all up to exhaustion and all that time I spent in the hospital over the last few weeks.

I suppose it's about time that I introduce myself, seeing as how it's a new year and all. I'm Martha Jones and I currently spend most of my time at St. Joseph Hospital. I'm finishing up my residency, so that I can be a full fledged doctor. And when I'm not at the hospital, I tend the spend most of that time at home, which gets extremely boring, so this year my New Year's resolution is to get out and make friends.

Christmas went really well. Everyone loved their gifts (as far as I can tell) and we've been doing nothing but enjoying our time together. Harry is coming over for New Years and probably taking the kids somewhere.

Thus I will be by myself for the countdown. I shouldn't be so excited, but I am a bit, to have the house to myself for one evening. I don't even know what to do with myself.

I need a holiday. I love my kids, but I just need a holiday. Teenagers.

I had a dream last night that I stowed away in this.. spaceship, although I had thought it was something else at the time. It belonged to this funny old man with white curly hair and a velvet coat. Oh and there was a talking baked potato.

Talking. Baked. Potato.

Where does my brain get these ideas?

I need a vacation. One of our major projects here at work just died a spectacular death, thanks to ONE idiot! There's a reason we make back-ups of everything... just because the project is nearing completion does NOT mean you wipe all the old files "to make space for new ones".

We keep them because if something goes wrong and the working files get corrupted, WE HAVE A BACK-UP TO DO A RESTORE!!!

Needless to say, he's done. Fired. Canned. Sacked.

But now, my team is back to starting from scratch. The only good thing is that since it was just a patch for an existing game, it shouldn't take more than a month to redo it all. But it does mean lots of overtime, me having to work at home, AND doubling as a code monkey to get us back on track.

Anyone want to distract me? Even if it's just for an evening or a few hours?

Thanks to everyone who suggested that I actually try Thanksgiving this year. It turned out pretty well, I think. Though I'm not sure my kids want me in the kitchen anymore.

Now onto Christmas. Just thinking about going shopping makes my old bones ache. I should hire a shopper. Anyone want to? You have to buy for teenagers.

Though I've been in the country a while, I haven't celebrated Thanksgiving. Have any of the other Brits participated in Thanksgiving? I don't know if I should cook. I've got four kids, and it's just the five of us. It's a lot of food, especially with Christmas dinner right around the corner.

Opinions? Should I give it a whirl since I live here now? I mean it sounds good.

I hope everyone's having a lovely Halloween. The kids are out trick or treating by themselves. They're too old to have their mum out with them. It's sad, but true. I've occupied my time watching scary movies though. They're not so bad.

I might be scarce for a while, I'm starting a new investigation. Everything's all hush hush of course. Wish me luck.

I'd just like to say that not all journalists are crazy gossip crackpots. Some of us actually care about real news.

I feel like I should apologize on half of my profession.

I kind of wish Iron Man wasn't so forthcoming with who is he because I bet the conspiracy theories would be really interesting to read and write. Oh well. We still have that weird cat lady in England to theorize about.

Tonight the last of my series on Develo-core goes out over the telly. It's my last one for at least a couple of weeks. There are some stories that I'm working on, but no leads quite yet. Which is just fine, because I have four teenagers in the house, and they are completely running me up the wall.

So glad they're in school again. Luke's even in college this year, ahead of his class. I miss him, but I've got the others to look after.

Anyway, that's a plug for my television program.
