Somewhere, under all this paper….

….is a woman.


Exam fever has reached its peak here – and there’s no fun quite like getting seven-and-eight year olds to concentrate on study and being quiet for eight days on the trot. Hey, I struggle to do that!

I think my role is even harder cos I work with those who struggle with literacy and reading…and guess how we assess most of our work? With reams of redaing and writing, hurrah! Many cups of coffee each day and a glass of wine each night might just get me through!

Today the kids had English and then my R.S. paper – most amusing answers thus far?

Q: What two foods did God provide in the desert for the Israelites?
A: Biscuits and crisps?

And, even more awesomely,

Q: How did Moses’ mother keep him safe?
A: She put him in tarmac.


Nevermind, I’m just stoked that so far (only one script still due in) not one of my monkeys has failed. I SAID they were good at this subject (biscuits, crisps and tarmac notwithstanding!)!

As for me, I’m getting there. Half term looms…praise the heavens :-).

Love and choc chip cookies to all,

    10 years of Christian education and I don’t remember anything about God giving the Israelites biscuits and crisps. I guess the Church is a lot different across the pond.

    Maybe that’s just what the student would have wanted God to feed the Israelites with. Sounds yummy to me.I don’t know who that ANON1 person is…
