Good morning and welcome to a sunny, frosty morning here in mid-Essex. After a day in school, I was zonked come the evening but managed to stay more or less awake until after ten in the hopes of avoiding a stupid o'clock awakening and, for once, it worked!
So now I am running late, but it doesn't matter.
It was a very pleasant day in school yesterday. Someone made a really nice comment about my teaching which cheered me up no end. Are all teachers as unconfident about their craft? I have no idea but I suspect many are just like me, hiding behind a 'I can do this' veneer.
Afternoon playground duty was chilly but pleasantly fresh after a stuffy classroom.
Today doesn't have any particular commitments so I might just possibly see if I can tackle the dump formerly known as 'my bedroom'. It is a singularly depressing place at the moment and needs some TLC.
Also, as mentioned yesterday, I'm making Jack Monroe's mushroom rogan josh for dinner. I'm looking forward to that!
B: I was going to have porridge but it's rather late and I'm not feeling hungry so I will see if I can last out until lunch time and maybe have an apple in an hour or so.
L: a slice of pizza with some salad, fruit yogurt
D: mushroom rogan josh, cauliflower rice, maybe a flatbread, fruit or yogurt.
Nice and healthy, nice and frugal too!
I'm just enjoying the first coffee of the day - aaaahhhh, lovely!
