Yet again the scheme of work has been changed so I am also trying to get my head around that! And on top of that I am taking on an extra role as Progress and Achievement Leader for Y11 (oh and teach 5 lessons of Science too), so there is lots of new stuff for me to do as well.
However when I got in it was to discover that the rooms still aren't ready to be sorted - grrr! So along with 2 colleagues I spent a few hours allocating resources for the department and having a quick discussion on topics we would be starting off with.
I will still go back in tomorrow, as I have a meeting with the Head to discuss my new role - and hopefully identify some target students to work with in the first term. Trouble is the meeting won't be until 3pm so I will miss being there when my 3 get home from their first day back :(
|This is them last year.|
I'm sure it won't bother my sons (who are about to start Y11) but I would like to be there for my daughter at the end of her first day in Y8. Mind you it won't bother her either, but as I tell her regularly even when she is 40 she will still be my baby!
So despite planning on spending most of the day at work, I was home before 1pm. My MIL, her partner and their dog came around to visit - forgot to get a photo of them, doh, so this is an old one -
In an earlier post I mentioned my photo stash find. For an hour or so before the inlaws arrived I put them in chronological order in one album and then started to Project Life-ify them (yes it is a real word, honest). They are all photos I love - but some are that old I only have vague memories of why I took them. I've just realised that I could include information about what some of their favourite things were at that time (books, TV, toys etc).
I would love to do project life properly but I
- (a) forget to take the everyday photos regularly enough and
- (b) forget to make notes to go with the photos and
- (c) don't have the right photos for the right divided page protectors, so then I get so far behind I get stressed by it and give up!
Oh well we have Bonfire Night and Christmas to look forward too now. See you soon,
