What a nightmare day, and it always happens when I'm off the next bloody day.
Podds - we are opening one of those Studio Schools where pupils work 9-5, follow the usual school teaching plans, but then have a work placements from the age of 14. They also have to stay until 5pm which includes homework time and extra activities. The priciples of the school are quite exciting, they get GCSE education plus work experience and can go onto 6th form and BTECs etc. I hope it does what its designed to do, because then we would be having people leaving school who know what "work life" is all about too.
I cant remember much else, apart from DL is on a train again, Spence is enrolling DL for a marafun and Daffs is busy working a 4 day week. Normality resumes
Today I have spent the whole day working out a new 7 day rota, with a whole raft of issues to resolve with it. Finally done, and one of the team comes to see me to hand in their resignation. But think its sorted now
Border peeps are checking illegals, we're ok actually its just our "systems" need updating. But you know what its like, you go through everything with a fine toothcome just to be sure there is no nasty surprises.
Am going home because my brain is mush, Stoke this weekend so wont be in much. Play nice
I'm feeling a bit and not sure whether to say anything or keep
I think I mentioned a while back the boy saying he wanted to move English sets because the teacher can't control the class & he's finding the mucking about annoying, well he came home today saying for the last 20 minutes of the lesson they played heads down, thumbs up!!??
Now I can quite understand a 'filler' in infants, although at our school any 'spare' time would be filled with a story or 'circle time' and perhaps at a push at juniors...but at seniors when they are just back from a holiday!!??
Perhpas they were learning the imperative, Spence?
A long and lovely day for me! Went to work pretty much planning to hand in my notice this morning Then had performance review which was SO lovely and full of exciting things that I'm plotting how I can stay there FOREVER
Eating rice pudding now
Chuggs - 4 day week is indeed well planned - 4 days until October now (when my job runs out, but we'll worry about that nearer the time). Tomorrow I shall be meeting some people for tea, and doing some painting, and buying some fake moustaches for our not-christmas party next week
Oh, and maybe a run or summat
Daffs - I really don't know how you can be so laissez faire re jobs........if I didn't know where the next month's money was coming from to pay the mortgage and the bills I'd go nuts worrying about making the dogs homeless......oh and me and Mr P too !!
I postes last night, but RW chewed it up and spat it out it seems
Daffs, I love your philosophy on life, like Podds, I worry if I haven't enough to pay the bills and need to have what I feel is a safety net in the bank! Having said that, we have also lived on very little money, only just enough to get by on, but we are still here and none the worse for it!
Happy Birthday Meldy
*Puts on party hat*
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOULDY
*Goes to put on clothes*
What a wonderful attitude to life, Daffs. Perfect proof that owning "things" isn't the only route to happiness.
My eyes ! My eyes!!!
Happy Birthday Meldy Mouldy!!
*Strips off and puts on XB's party hat!!*
Love it Daffs I was like that when I was young, free and single and only wanted to travel....but now it's children & kids!!
children and kids, spence, blimey
Ah daffy the coroporate is still our beloved Daffy the bohemian - hoorah
Spence, sounds to me as though a chat with the school might either set your mind at rest or perhaps draw their attention to the fact boy isn't happy about what is happening during maths
HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOUR ROYAL M......ELDYNESS will there be cake ?
Candied peel, chuggs small bits in cakes are ok but how does C2 eat them?
a bossy verb, Pippi? Sounds as though I need to be in your class at school - could you give me some examples?
Love the sound of the fevver game, sluggy. Do you and MS play it too
Podds, whilst I agree that every kiddywink matters and deserve the best conditions to enable them to achieve their potential in exams, as you say, are we actually doing them any favours by seeming to legitamise their foibles and making allowances for them. As my counsellor chum suggested to me everytime Cush barks and lunges at another dog, we cross the road to avoid them so as far as she is concerned, it works because she believes she has 'seen them off' Not sure I explained that very well but you know what I mean!
Work is ok but I find myself having to brief solicitors and counsel on on the finer points of EU law (which I know little about) prior to going to tribunal- thankfully my boss is very good! Today is badminton with an acquaintence who has resurfaced and then being touched up by Dean - I'm such a tart
*follows spence's example and strips off clothes but puts on dunce's hat*
Getting this off my chest
Mother in law's house around the corner is rented to a young couple and their 2 kids. I've got to go round today to investigate why a light that "was working" but "is not working now". Under cross examination from Mrs XB, it seems that they haven't tried replacing the bulb. FFS.
This is what happens if you molly coddle children.
