So I am enjoying doing Project Life and taking snapshots…I’m linking up with Jessica‘s Project Life Tuesdays.
January 1st – January 7th
Saturday, January 1st
Matthew wasn’t well, so I headed out for my first walk of the year on my own. It was a grey, damp, rainy day, but it was lovely to be out in the fresh air! I went to Hampstead Heath and climbed Parliament Hill for the first time. I want to go back next time on a clearer day.
Sunday, January 2nd
Siobhán and I are becoming quite the movie junkies….we went to see ‘It’s A Wonderful Life’ after Christmas, and this is us going to see ‘Roman Holiday’. The BFI show all kinds of classics on the big screen – great fun!
Monday, January 3rd
For most of the UK, Bank Holiday Monday was a time of rest. For me, it was a time of admin. The lovely Matthew was very sweet and kept me stocked with tea and cuddles as I wrote many, many schemes of work and timetables!
Tuesday, January 4th
This manic grin is what happens when you go all the way into work a day early, and realise you can’t work because someone else is using your classroom. Cue an impromptu ‘Gilmore Girls’ and ‘Dawson’s Creek’ fest! I *heart* our sofa.
Wednesday, January 5th
As I traveled into school I passed this Christmas tree removal spot. By the time I walked back at 7, it was five times as large. The end of Christmas always makes me a little sad….but also makes me want to start planning for next year!
Thursday, January 6th
The first day back to school…and the day the decorations came down! Matthew was a darling and did about 90% of the work. This is Dave getting packed away.
Friday, January 7th
Most of my Friday was spent right here, at my desk. The going back to school is always a shock to the system. Never more so than on days like this when I wake up at 7.50 am.
My class arrive at 8.
So that’s my first week. It’s been a learning curve – I need to have my camera with me at all times, and I know I need more pictures of people! I’m enjoying it though, and will enjoy having the book to look back on in years to come – it should be a real snapshot of a particular time in my life.
