We have a few changes planned for next week. I have to dig up the vegetable patch and the soft fruit then dismantle the greenhouse (the cat won't be happy!). We have a man coming to trim the tall trees and a larger greenhouse being delivered (perhaps she'll stop sulking once she's seen it). The old greenhouse will move up to the allotment, as will the soft fruit. Really looking forward to everything being sorted!
I left teaching three years ago and discovered the joys of pottering. I enjoyed my job and have some great memories. I remember my last Sports Day ... a very warm, sunny day ... as I passed a Year 8 boy who had just won a 200m race I said, "You look hot." Quick as a flash he said, "Thank you!" There's never a dull moment in a secondary school! As September gets closer I should be all smug smiles but this year I've agreed to go back for a term! I'm going to miss the lazy days.
