Good morning. The sun is shining, it's lovely and cool and fresh and it is so peaceful right now. I really love the early mornings, before most people are up and about. I do hope that when I retire I stll keep up the habit. Hopefulkly I will as even in the long holiday I don't revert to sleeping beyond about 6:00. It does help that I'm not any sort of party person.
Lovely family and neighbours are a blessing. My car battery went at the beginning of the week. Beth went to get another one for me and yesterday evening a neighbour fitted it for me. I know I ought to be able to do batteries myself but . . . It really needed to be done because tomorrow I am on a course at Harlow so the car is essential.
Yesterday was, as usual, good. The children did their performance of Jack and the Beanstalk and they were brilliant. I was so proud of them. It's a delightful little musical with songs, acting, percussion, narration and plenty of opportunity to do our own thing. The other children enjoyed watching it, remembering when they did it, joining in with the actions and even with some of the songs. And that's another tick on the list.
Today I have my class all day again. Excellent! I'm sure it is better for them too to have the same person more consistently. It's certainly better for me.
And now I must finish my breakfast (toast from home made bread with home made yellow plum jam, absolutely delicious) and then go and get ready. There's plenty to do!
Have a lovely day.
