The alarm didn’t go off and so I slept an hour past by usual rising time. Luckily I had some frozen lunches and threw that into my bag, and had showered the night before due to having to turn water on and off outside. Augie missed out on his usual morning play with me, and I couldn’t linger over my cup of tea, but I made it to school only about 15 minutes later than usual. The benefit of an extra hour of sleep was totally lost in the rush though.
I forgot to put my belt on and as I had long pants on, I spent the day hoisting them back up which was rather annoying, especially as it was a day I was on my feet a lot and not just sitting at my desk!
Tomorrow (today when this is published) I have an author coming to speak to the students about his books. This author was, some years ago, a teacher at our school and some of the long term staff worked with him. One current teacher was actually taught by him! Should be an interesting day. After school he is taking my creative writing students for a workshop, which is such a wonderful opportunity for them especially as a couple are very serious about being writers. I told them they must dedicate their success, and first books, to me!
Must remember to set the alarm correctly; and wear a belt!
