I have marked two sets of exercise books and here is a picture of Willow. I’d feel 100% fab if I had also planned tomorrow’s lessons properly.
Percy likes to supervise when I print work for school at home. I wish he’d do his bit tonight, because my printer is not picking up the signal from my computer over the wi-fi. Soooo annnnoooyyyyiinnnnggggg!!!
Bliss. End of term is here. My first day back will be ACAD #246, which is the next time I’ll see this ceramic coaster on my classroom desk.
Got two kittens here at home with suspected wasp stings. They’re very brave, but the stings are clearly uncomfortable.
Student feedback is so much better when Milka helps.
I’ve been marking for hours today. I’m incredibly slow at it, even after several years of teaching. I remain mystified as to how anyone does it faster than I do. And yet I know almost everyone does.
Milka helped me for a while.
Cute, but tends to get in way of marking.
Milka was determined to have a cuddle while I was working on my laptop, but I needed both my hands for typing. It was early-morning cold, so I tried tucking him down the front of the quilt I had wrapped up in. It worked and I hereby present Papoose-Cat.
Willow helping me prepare lessons. He’s not too good at French, German, Spanish or RE, but he likes to think he’s supportive with the IT aspects of my job.
Early to bed, early to rise suits me best in term-time. I took this picture around 6:30am this morning. Willow has taken to joining me so he can monitor my planning and preparation.
Happy birthday to my son Ted, who is 12 today.
I have just got home from Year 9 Parents’ Evening. It’s been demanding, because I have five classes and teach four subjects. I have met and talked with 46 sets of parents. I now know I can do 2 1/2 minute-long appointments. I feel rather proud of myself.
Milka came to sit on me as soon as I plopped down onto the sofa, the little sweetie.
