It’s the first week of term! A brand new academic year.
Two days of meetings (sigh. I am not so good at meetings).
Then on Wednesday the boys arrive. I am looking forward to meeting my new classes!
Feeling: very busy, but also excited. I love September and the back to school feeling, the crisper turn to the breeze, the freshly sharpened pencils…
Thinking: about school, about friends, about upcoming excitements.
Making: displays and welcome packs, it feels like! Oh, and cupcakes for the start of year for my colleagues.
Doing: lots of work, plenty of homemaking, and a healthy whack of working out / socialising / collapsing on the couch.
Reading: I’ve almost finished ‘A Clash of Kings’. Am loving the whole series, but will probably switch to a couple of lighter reads before going back onto the third in the saga (I like to read a good range!).
Writing: medium term plans and letters and to do lists.
Watching: Sky Atlantic are showing the third season of Big Love, and it’s becoming quite the weekly treat.
Eating: sensibly. With occasional cupcakes.
Drinking: lots of water.
Listening: to old mix CDs, and cheesey tunes on Heart as I cook and clean in the evenings.
Working: pretty darn hard!
Wishing: for a good start to the term.
Looking forward to: Catch ups with Shona, Siobhán, Lou and Ems later in the month; to hearing all about Eileen’s holiday; to meeting my new students; to a lazy weekend after the madness of start of term; to a cup of tea and a cuddle this evening.
Have a great week, all! 🙂
