The dull and boring didn't last too long yesterday. The sun came out, the parcel was the shears after all, the present arrived later on in the day and life got very busy.
In the end, after I had boiled up the chicken bones and skin, I decided to make a risotto in Thermione and jolly tasty it was too. There was enough to make a very filling dinner yesterday and a school lunch today. Not bad at all.
I went into school to do my nanny helper thing, chatted to the teacher whose class I am taking today and found out what the planning was, then came home and did my bit of private tuition (loved it again this week - MUST lok out for more, somehow, somewhere). After gobbling down the risotto (scrummy) I was back in school to help FONS with the Christmas cards and there I stayed until well after nine. At that point I left because there was nothing else I could do but the others were still hard at it, adding up amounts with calculators. With my dyscalculia, I politely turned down any request to help with that! I think I'd cause more problems than I solved.
I think it is safe to say that by the end of the day I was no longer feeling dull or boring!
Today, Friday, seems to be dry ad not all that chilly and I am zonked after a late night.
I'm doing supply cover all day. Year 1 (brilliant) teaching a curriculum I know quite well and with which I feel at home. What more could a teacher ask, eh? I am really looking forward to it.
So no swimming, which is a shame, but next week I could go every day, should I want to (which I won't!).
Today's food (I keep forgetting to do this!)
Breakfast: Toast and things on
Lunch: chicken risotto
Dinner: Steak (yes, my favourite flat iron steak) with fried onions, maybe in a roll. I'll see how I feel about that one.
