I had an e mail from my godson last week telling me how he was enjoying his final teaching placement - he qualifies as a teacher in June this year. He asked, in the e mail, what on earth head teachers do as they always seem to be rushing from place to place.
I e mailed him back and told him they have to rush from place to place as they are secretly trying to get the earth to start spinning more slowly in order to expand time, create another couple of hours in each day and thus have a tiny fighting chance of catching up on all the things they have to do!
What do head teachers do - they put out fires - one after another. Some days the fires are few and far between and you even have 'spare' time to catch up on some of the never ending paperwork. Some days are like today when there is a veritable firestorm
This is a page I meant to post last week as it was such a laugh to make.
Don't you just love that programme? We filmed our own myth busters in death valley. Is 124 in the shade hot enough to fry an egg? Nij has promised me he will edit the video one day (I do so hope he does) but for the time being here is the paper layout for the album.
The answer to the question ......
No it wasn't - I am sure it would have been if I had been allowed to try it ont he bonnet of the car but 'someone' (who is sat right behind me) didn't think that was a good idea as they would probably be the one to end up cleaning it off. It might have worked if we had found proper tarmac to try it on - but we were trying to do it away from where anyone would see us (because they might THINK we were nuts!)
Tell you what - I wish I still looked that brown and tanned and healthy now and not pasty winter-ified.
Today I am thankful for
- The support I receive from so many people at work
