It has certainly been one of those weeks.
Non-stop, wall-to-wall, equally tough and random, work, work, work, play, work.
I am simply exhaustimipated, but finally, I’ve reached a lull. Which is why I am hiding in my lovely cool classroom, scribing a quick post, supping a Diet Coke and listening to Kate Bush. Mmmmm, angsty.
Since Monday…. I’ve done at least 12 hours of rehearsing with the beloved Year 7s this week. I’ve booked trans-Atlantic flights. I have taught over twenty hours and left cover / done the marking for another fifteen. I’ve done a four hour parents’ evening. I’ve had two two-hour band calls. I spent a whole day at a really cool Islamic centre (fascinating, really, fascinating. I learnt so much). I spent two hours in a debrief meeting on some random psycho-socio-whatsimajiggle testing we’ve all done (apparently I’m creative, inquisitive and friendly! Wait, I think I already knew that ;-)). I have barely seen my flat.
But now it’s the weekend, and after the jumpy jumpy fun-ness of last weekend it’s a lowkey one here….a night of pizza and ‘American Idol’ beckons (mmmmmm, ‘American Idol’); tomorrow’s work, friends and driving (and an early night, woo!); Sunday’s church and friends. Love it! And tonight I’ll get to sleep for more than four or five hours….
I literally cannot wait!
Hee, I am so easily pleased.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend planned!
