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?
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.
