i have been going through my blogroll trying to figure out who wrote a positive review on The Other Boleyn Girl and i can’t remember! but thank you whoever it was, because i bought it based on that review, and then bought the whole tudor series. i’m on the last one now!! as you can see i have spent most of my holidays reading. i think i most definitely needed a break this term. after spending most of the term getting everyone to revise and send off university applications, the last thing i needed in the last week of term was a complaint from a parent saying i was putting too much pressure on her son. too much pressure! if he was any more chilled out he’d be sleeping in the class! anyway, i said i’d ring her back after the holidays. i think i needed that long to calm down!

did anyone else totally try to get to work this morning, despite being able to see the rows of cars from their bedroom window and receive dire warnings that it’s too dangerous to drive? i’ve never been so scared in my life! and i was only going 5 MPH!

luckily made it to the top of my street(took an hour!) and was told college was closed. i’m a bit bit bored now, don’t know what to do with myself. i only see this one class on tuesdays, so if Eid is on tuesday next week, they will be very behind!! and i organised to have form pics today. and i needed to get organised for parents evening tomorrow. i think i will be working from home then!

i’m more worried my sister can’t get in, who works in A &E! not good.

hhm what else? i was going to write about my traumatic experience being threatened and having a fight break out in my classroom, but it’s kind of old news now. one student has been excluded and the other apologised, so i’m not really that distraught anymore.

and the other thing was when i offered to go shopping with my friend, who decided to bring along her three year old (sick!) daughter, who decided to throw up all over me when i gave her a cuddle! i went over the next day to give her a chance to apologise for her offence, but she wouldn’t talk to me. i apparently did a lot of screaming when she threw up. i didn’t scream at her though! but she is talking to me now though, although it took some blatant bribery.

i need a sensible coat and sensible shows. i don’t think i’m prepared for the weather if this continues!
