A bit of a prattle

It'll be June soon and maybe it's the re-turn of warmth and sunny weather but I'm feeling a tad perkier! You ok too?

Saturday was Simon's mini-birthday party - that party which was to have been a huge celebration of friendliness that became instead a smaller yet still lovely celebration of family and friends who are close enough that they are really family-ness. We BBQ'd some pork, laughed and drank lots of beer - well they did. I drank lots of coke with the odd slosh of brandy and therefore was much soberer than people thought I was ;o)

School this week has been really hard (it's only Wednesday morning!) Yesterday I had to tell the current Foundation Stage Leader that actually she is out of a job for September ... and will be moving into another year group and she cried. And it made me feel like shit! But then I suppose with maturity the new job and the bigger pay packet, comes increased reponsibilities and more "feeling like shit-ness!" Hopefully today will be a better day - a sit under a tree and read a strory day, a build the tallest tower you can with LEgo day - that'd be a Jo kind of day.

Busy washing and ironing clothees last night as we're off to France on Saturday morning for a week of sun, sand and pintxos in St Jean-de-Luz - can't wait guys! Of course I shall have to lug the trusty lap-top with me so that I can get on with my school reports that have to be in by June 24th ... 52 of them to write this year which feels horrendous, but that is because I am right at the beginning of them. Right - here I go, have a good day.

Lax ... in fact lax beyond belief!

Well, what a difference a May makes ... I obviously don't like posting in May because I haven't been able to manage more than 1 post - pathetic! I'm going to blame it on the pressure of work, my 2nd wedding anniversary and the fact that it's still bloody raining - what happened to that nice weather we were having around Easter? I got sunburnt one day and now I'm just getting foot rot from the sog :o(

Life has been very busy actually ... started new job, leadership coaching, interviewed to employee new teachers, new job made permanaent, teaching, wedding anniversary, Simon's birthday this weekend coming, school reports to write, won in poker last night etc etc etc.
Hopefully I shall post a little more before the end of the month ... and if I don't, see you in June.
