Linking up, as is traditional, with the crazy talented Jessica!
Monday, June 11th: The start of exam week. Cue stressedpupils, parents and teachers, and in typical English summer fashion…torrential rain!
The classroom after exam number 1.
Beautiful British summertime!
Tuesday, June 12th: More exams and more busyness, and an evening of buying new pyjamas for me and making cupcakes for my boys!
Exam week = treats for the badgers!
Who doesn’t love Animal? Mega comfy PJs, just in time for away days.
Wednesday, June 13th: Nine hours of exam marking. Like a machine, baby.
7,452 answers marked in 9 hours = 828 an hour, 13.8 a minute, just around four seconds per question. Probably a bit quicker, as I had to count up amrks, check through, etc..
As I said, like a machine!
Thursday, June 14th: More marking (history this time), then a quick jaunt to London Bridge to double check the route to our theatre trip on Friday.
Love the drama of the Shard, high above the skyline.
Friday, June 15th: No exams! Theatre trip! Girldate with Eileen!
Badger in space, by one of my lovely boys.
Nom, nom, nom, asparagus!
Eileen doing her best ‘please-can-we-have-some-more-wine?’ face!
Saturday, June 16th: A fun morning volunteering at Manna, then a quick stop off for groceries and a stroll over the Thames to go to Emily’s birthday picnic. Such fun – and the rain stayed away!
Choppy, choppy river.
Sunday, June 17th: A day of packing, organising, relaxing and getting stuff done. Oooh, and Gilmore Girls!
Getting that diary in order!
Fun times….busy times. How are you all getting along?
