The other side

Every year, the demands of June at school hit me like a tonne of bricks.  I’m a fairly chilled, even-keel, graft-away-till-it’s-done sort of person, but the triple whammy of exam week, activity week, and report submission week all too often leaves me exhausted (75 hour weeks drain me!).  That said, it’s the nature of the beast – in teaching June and September are high pressure, full on, and tiring….but talk to me in a month and I’ll be the most chilled person in the borough!

So the blog tends to slim down a little in those months, but I think that’s no bad thing – all those lat night proofreading sessions and early, early commutes have given me lots of ideas and I’m looking forward to having lots to post about during the gentler months to come.

All has been well here – I’ll be posting soon about wedding plans, parties at Lords, friends coming to stay, my beef with The Apprentice, summer fun, beautiful celebrations and cats (as ever ;)), but for now it’s the first lazy Sunday in ages, so I’m off for a hot date with a pile of ironing and a movie.  Life is good.
