I'm writing this Sunday evening although it won't get sent until Monday morning. See, I have little confidence that I will wake particularly early and might not have time to construct anything sensible in the morning.
(and the person who just muttered 'does she ever' can just leave the room - NOW!)
However, I am writing it as if it's Monday. Hope that makes sense!
Sunday was a hard working, productive day. For a start, I tackled the planning and got it all sorted. It's rather jumping in at the deep end but I am sure the children will be ready to get going and start learning again. I have zillions of printouts (must remember to get some more A4 paper) and, because I had the common sense to take my laptop home over the holiday, I also have the Notebook resources ready for the interactive whiteboard. I have power point presentations galore. I have links to web pages. I've never been so prepared!
B&A came round for lunch. I served up the savoury crumble I made for last Sunday when I wasn't all that well again so it went in the freezer. With it I served some fried tomatoes, squishy but perfectly sliced by my newly sharpened kinves. And you know what - it was all delicious. Yum yum!
And then B and I searched the Internet for hotel type accomodation. In February a good friend of hers is getting married and B is a bridesmaid. I have been invited because I will be looking after A. We (A and I) will be travelling there on Saturday morning and staying overnight in a hotel before we all make our way home on the Sunday. It's good - because B will be going up on Friday and it's a family room, I will be able to access the room any time on Saturday, get changed for the wedding there and leave everything ready. It will be good and I am looking forward to it very much!.
That's about it really. High ho, high ho, it's off to school I go. I can't remember what state I left my classroom in. I did stay for ages after school on the last day of last term but, as I was feeling rotten, I just don't remember how much tidying up and preparation I actually did. Fingers crossed it won't be too bad.
