I felt so joyful when I woke up this morning and realised it was Wednesday. A day off in the middle of the week is a heavenly thing indeed. After three nights on the trot with Little Bun being awake between 3 and 6pm I was feeling a bit raw and confused. She slept most of Monday morning to make up for it all so is much better now. To top it off, yesterday I started teaching a new group of heavily testoteroned 16 year old lads with tons of energy, just when I had none. Thank god I'm a fairly good actor and appeared on the ball or they'd have run rings around me.
Today was my day. Car boot after the school run and then straight to church for a spot of 'We Plough the Fields and Scatter' for the school Harvest Festival.
The rest of the day went in a blur of fiddling about. A spot of knitting the wristwarmers I'm sure will be needed soon was first. I decided to add a stripe of the mustard I'm knitting the scarf in just because.
Then I finally sewed up the strip of fabric I'd cut to make a skirty panel for Eldest Bun's bed. Simple and straight with ties both ends and all along to tie it to the frame and hide the stuff hidden underneath.
To end my fiddling about before heading back to school I thought I'd better pot up the supermarket Heather's I bought. Steph over at Curlew Country always inspires me with her green fingered skills. She mentioned these wee plants as a quick autumn fix and I thought I know I can manage that one.
Now here I am after a quick PTFA meeting tonight in the pub. All business done and dusted at breakneck speed with events planned up to February. I suggested we had Penny for the Guy and put the winner on the village bonfire (Guy that is - not child!). So excited about this one, the playground will be filled (hopefully) with Guys for a week and then on judging day we'll sell bonfire toffee and toffee apples.
Now I fancy trying to catch up on a bit more of my missing sleep, but first I've got to write a risk assessment for taking my students out to play footie tommorow morning. Then it's time to snooze and dream.
