Amazingly my lovely pupils have been great today and don't seem to mind being taught by sign language.
Big worry is Saturday's concert - I have a two and a half hour rehearsal tonight which I will have to attend to get conductor's notes, but will have to mime the music. Hope the voice returns for Saturday.
Reason for post title is that I am regularly ill with coughs, colds, chest infections, etc and have no energy (bedtime is 9.00pm unless parents' evening dictates I'm still at work at 9pm). So much so that my GP tested me last year for a variety of illnesses including underactive thyroid (it's in my family), but concluded that I just have
'Working Mum Syndrome' (full time job + toddler = ill)
He was sympathetic, but didn't have a cure - shame!
