Still heavily into exam season here and so that sees me back ins choolsas an invigilator. It is easier work really - just deadly boring int he actual exams.
I like the before when we are setting up. I appear to have become to go to guy for all IT related elements which is fine. I am happy with IT. There is no preparation, no marking and the students are very nice. It's five minutes from home and just about the right amount of work for a retiree who had NO INTENTION os working at all. I do like the being back in a school environemnt.
Today was extra tough though as I was with a single A level student for a German listeninge xam which was 2.5 hours. One student, smnall room and I felt I couldn't keep staring at the poor lad as I didn't want it to be any more intimidating than it already was. I felt I couldn't walk around like we would usually do, or fidget so it was 2.5 hours of looking discreetly at him and doing absolutely nothing else. I thought I would go insane! Ah well. I said I could do it and I did.
We also had a sad day yesterday as it was the funeral of the daughter of a very dear friend of mine. They captured her essence so perfectly in the service and it was a beautiful occasion but it is so wrong that parents should ever have to say faewell to their child. It is simple not right. Our thoughts and prayers are witht he whole family but especially her parents and her brother.
I managed to scrap the weeklyc hallenge on UKS last night as I needed some good scrap therapy to take my mind off the events.
I promised free sketches and templates too and so I have a very simple template /sketch for you to play with
if you would like the template it is HERE
Today I am thankful for
- my wonderful husband working so hard to make the garden look fabulous.
- work done for today
- scrapping to relieve the saddness a little - it means I lose myself
- my glaucoma drops not making my vision so blurred - I think I am more used to them now
and just for fun some cat humour
