After one of the best summer holidays I have ever had, I am now pretty much ready to go back.
Well as ready as I will ever be.
Work done ... bags packed .. e mails sent ... desk cleared... mind ...well mind is fuddled.
I have loved this summer. I was running on empty and so this summer is the first I have really done very little. We did go away and had perhaps our best ever trip to Florida, but apart from that we have done little and allowed both my body and mind to re-charge. We have just enjoyed each pother's company and I am so blessed to be married to my best friend who has the same sense of humour as I do, the same outlook on life, the same view of everything. I think the trouble is, the older you get, the less quickly you bounce back.
It took me all 8 weeks. I just hope it doesn't take the same time to go back to empty again.
I count myself blessed to have one of the best jobs in the world. True I would like to not work at all, but as that is not an option,then couldn't wish for a better job. I work in a beautiful environment with super children and I love teaching. Trouble is I don't do much of that these days. I don't think anyone, no matter what job they do, would say they love paperwork, they love admin, they love problems. But it comes with the territory. So toady is 'big girls knickers' on, and get ready.
I know, as soon as I see those Little smiling faces, as soon as the girls are back, my life will have its re-newed purpose and I will be up and running and raring to go.
To all of my readers who are teachers, and I know there are quite a few of you, have a good school year, enjoy your pupils, remember that to teach is the most special job in the world. To teach is to touch the future and teaching, above all, is a work of heart.
So - what did I do on my last day at home.
Well not counting a riveting time at Tesco I did this week's weekly challenge set by the lovely soojay.
Today I am thankful for
- a job I love
- the chance to make a difference
- an amazing relaxing summer holidays
- spending quality time together.
