Learn Something New Every Day: 1st September

Lots of firsts today: first day back at school, first day of my first year of Learn Something New Every Day, first day driving myself to work...

For Shimelle's class LSNED I'm going to do a 12x12 page each day (in theory) and use this blog to keep a diary of my experiences at school. I can then use this diary to provide the journalling for the pages. Easy Peasy! Right?

Today then:

Although I had forgotten both tea and milk, the day turned out rather well. Just getting back in the building and seeing all my fellow teachers perked me up. It even smelled good. Schools do have a particular smell (some departments more than others) but maths smells sort of academic and like old textbooks. Perhaps because the department is full of old textbooks. I snuck into my classroom and seeing it all clean and fresh filled me with ambition and inspiration for the year ahead. Bring it on.

Unrelated (as there was no scrapping today) I made a page about my visit to the horse rest home during the bank holiday.

P.S. Poirot time! I desperately want to visit Syria! And also Jordan and Egypt. Finger crossed for next summer.


  1. Happy New Year. I teach and am married to a teacher so Sept always feels like more of a new start than Jan.
    Congratulations on something else you mentioned in passing - driving youself to work.
    I am blogging Learn Something New too, but there's no way I'd be able to do a 12x12 every day

  2. Thank you so much for your comment on the OA blog today!!!


  3. So cute :-) And - hang on - are you a maths teacher then? Did I know that? I'm a mathematician myself :-) (And a Poirot fan!)

  4. good luck in the new term. i was a teacher of 6th form for a while, have to say i was rubbish at maths but i get by. have a g8 time with us all on the class
