TuesdayA slight change to my week. I started yesterday with a new class, but as we have our inspection coming up, the powers-that-be decided to use me to finished off the reports, so I reluctantly handed my class over to a colleague. At lunchtime everyone was quiet. Some had been doing peer observations and had disappeared into a classroom to discuss their findings. The rest of us sat quietly planning, eating or reading the paper. It rained during the night so my garden really perked up.
I arrived home to find M sanding down the front door. It had been looking a little scruffy, and now looked even worse, but you could see that it was a work in progress anyway. I stayed late at work to interview a couple of people for my TESOL course in October, but didn't accept either of them. One interesting thing- I was invited to do some teacher training in Georgia, ex USSR. It's a cool idea, but I'm not sure how easy it would be to get there. The association's reps are coming over soon, so we can sit down together and see if it is a viable idea. The forecast was for rain overnight again- one less job to do. I spent some time catching up with the iTDi sessions.
ThursdayMy flowers were looking funky so I took some pictures from a funny angle while I was sitting down with a coffee.
The big gladioli always remind me of Dame Edna :-)
I really don't think you can have too many flowers in the house, but I like the fact that I can buy so many from the little stall for so little money- especially as they need replacing every week.
SaturdayToday was warm and sunny again, so I wandered down into town to meet my friend for coffee. She has just split up from her husband of many years, and needs to know that her friends are there for her.
When I got home, I found the door was turning a different colour! I'm not sure if I like the blue- and I did ask for it to all be the same colour, not a white surround. I'll live with it a bit before I complain though :-)
Fingers crossed for next week. The inspection should be fine, but everyone is a bit stressed.
