Well, as well as husband commandeering my laptop (his had to be wiped clean and Windows reinstalled), I've been really, really busy.
I always think things will ease up when my exam classes go on study leave, but it never does, I just get a different set of things to do and no peace to do it because the pupils on study leave all come back for help!
Recently I've been marking exams, writing reports, singing, shopping, visiting and ferrying. I've been out for a meal with a friend who was over from Australia for a week, I've attended daughter's Swimming Gala (she was robbed, Henry cheated!) and I've lived through our department's review at work.
On Saturday daughter and I escaped the work/football zone that is our home and left husband to it while we went for a day out at Norton Priory with my mum and dad. We had a lovely lunch and wandered about the ruins and the beautiful walled garden. Daughter loved the real "live" skeleton in the stone coffin the best!
This weekend I've got a 40th Birthday party and a concert in Manchester, while next week I've got my Departmental End of Term Do, a Sixth Form Information Evening, a choir rehearsal and a Mums' Night Out!
Then I've got a concert in Hawkshead in the Lake District!
Roll on the end of term!
