I've caught up with myself at long last! Today has been taken up with band stuff and lesson prep, and all the urgent bits have been done so I can take a bit of a rest until the responses start coming in.

Tomorrow is the first two workshops on behalf of the band and I'm really looking forward to them. They are hard work but rewarding, the worst bit being ferrying 10 brass instruments from home to car, car to school and the same again in reverse on the way home. The bit with the year 3s is good fun ... and very, very noisy!

The only other must do for this week is to write references for two teenagers I used to teach, but they won't take long to do. 

For the rest of the evening I have plonked myself in front of the TV and am watching 'Would I Lie To You?', always a good laugh.

Oh, and I'm feeling much better now, thanks.  


  1. Very much my favourite. I laugh till the tears come at Lee Mack. He's brilliant.

  2. You have been very productive! I'm glad you are feeling better, too. Enjoy the workshop, tomorrow. Maybe someone at the school where the workshop is being held can help with the instruments at that end?

  3. Sounds like a busy few days ahead. Glad to hear you are feeling better. I hope you have a fold up cart that you can take to use for all those instruments.
