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?
