The general theme around here is busy, I have to say. You know those oh-so-annoying women in the adverts who are zooming hither and thither, being busy, in the think of it? I feel a bit like one of them! And that’s termtime round here, let’s face it. And I’ve always said I’d rather be busy than bored….

Snapshots from life right now? Email and text conversations making me smile…tuck shop chat with the Year 8s (now they’re having a stressful time, let me tell you)….a lovely card from one of my pupils (back story: each morning I ask my class if they have any “love notes” for me (i.e. letters from parents). This morning Jenny pipes up “Yep, I do”. And pulls out the cutest little Winnie-the-Pooh card, which simply reads inside “To Miss Thornley, I love you, Love Jenny.” How cute?)…several dozen compliments in the space of a week, hitting all kinds of realms of my life…an unexpected and entertaining situation…and much to look foward to (as well as all the work, naturally).

To summarise – happy, tired, good. How are you?

    Happy, tired and good sums it up for me, too.Yesterday’s interview w/ the entertainment lawyer was BIZARRE, to say the least.I would love for someone to send me a Winnie the Pooh card! Even Eeyore would work. 🙂 Sounds like you’re very much appreciated. Good job!

    Hopefully things will calm down a little bit but I love that it’s charged you up with energy like a batter!I’m going into a quiet reflective phase, probably because my family visit is now over and I’m on my own again. It’s all good though.

    I had to use Wikipedia to find out what “tuck shop chat” meant. Two nations divided by a common language, indeed.I love how your posts so frequently allude to things that are going on without saying what is going on.

    Tired but happy over here. And I agree 100% about busy vs.bored. Busy any day of the week.
