No complaints though and, contrary to my predictions, yesterday turned out OK, weather-wise, with sun at playtimes and the heavy showers were sensible enough to fall only during lesson times. No teacher could ask for more.
Oh, I was so tired yesterday evening. All through Sunday night had slept badly, having one of those senseless dreams where you have to keep doing something and it never works out so you have to repeat it again and again . . .all night long. Not great! Thankfully, last night I slept like a log, despite the very early bedtime (before eight) and falling asleep almost immediately! Not even my new Kindle could keep me awake.
Yes, it has arrived and even techno-twit me managed to make sense of it straight away. I now need to have a good trawl through the free books and see what's on offer. I bet there will be some goodies. Recipe books? Hope so!
Today is coordinator time and PPA so I have my work cut out. There never seems to be enough time to fit everything in but it is superb to get the next week's planning done and dusted. I have a meeting in the morning - important but not tricky.
And now I must just review my planning for the day and make sure I have all the right sheets, etc. The biggest problem is whether there will be outdoor PE this morning. Two things will stop it: precipitation and puddles. You see, while the older children usually wear their trainers for outdoor PE, the younger children have plimsolls which, as any teacher knows, get wet easily. The playgrounds are uneven and very puddly, especially at the moment as the rain has nowhere to soak. There is no way we can cope with twenty eight pairs of trainers all drying in a long line in an undersized classroom for the rest of the day, even assuming they are all named (which they won't be). So - we will see!
