It has seemed strange not getting ready for school this September. Back around Easter time I decided I would apply for my state pension as I was entitled to claim it from July. This would mean that if there was no tutoring I would not have to face supply teaching.
So I began to clear out all my old school stuff work sheets I had kept for years and would probably never use again as now you are a failure unless you use an interactive white board. I thought about sending my "school clothes to the charity shop."
Then in June it seemed that there would be some more tutoring so I sort of geared myself up to going back however it was cancelled the last week of the summer term. I can't say that I was disappointed.
I am also the owner of a senior bus pass. It means I can pop to town without having to justify spending £3 60. It also came in very handy on holiday. But I wish all bus companies used the same method. Some give you a ticket, some don't, some card readers are on the top of the ticket machine , some on the side.
The school clothes are now in a pile, the recycling bin is full of old work sheets and out of date education magazines. And I am wondering how I fitted in going to work.
I have made a new pair of mittens. The yarn is Sirdar summer stripes
We have visitors in the garden as long as they only attack the nasturtiums I don't mind!
