Here we are, a week later and it all feels rather like a not terribly nice dream now. I'm so relieved to be feeling OK today. A bit weary, a bit residual achey but nothing to worry about. It's so nice to know that I shall be doing normal things today - well, as normal as a non-pupil day and an inter-school conference can ever be.
IPod tells me that it is pretty chilly outside so there is possibly a frost, not that I intend to investigate with wet hair and a towel wrapped around me! It would be lovely if today was like much of yesterday - warm, bright and sunny. At the last conference of this kind, two or three years ago, it was snowing all day!
I have nearly caught up with the paperwork after slogging at it for much of yesterday. You would have thought that after a week off there would be no issues but the fact is I just couldn't get my brain around it until yesterday. The ones I did were rubbish and had to be re-written. Ho hum!
Of course, I don't need to be in school by 7:30 today although I do have to drive across or around town to get to the conference venue. Luckily I know my roads after all this time and will use an around the outside route that totally avoids the town centre. On the way I need to fill up with petrol, the first time since I bought the car, and the garage topped her up as part of the deal. Shows how much driving I don't do, doesn't it?
Well, I'd better get going. I have wet hair to dry, a few clothes to iron and just a little bit more work before leaving.
Have a lovely day, wherever you are and whatever you are doing.
