Learn Something New Every Day: 7th September


Here's my page for yesterday - ginger cookies go down well in the maths office!

Today, my lesson is a little more practical: sometimes everything goes wrong. I've had one of those days. A spider had built a web in my shoe, my car had some sort of episode (I think I'm going to give it counselling), I accidently taught the wrong thing to 2 classes in one day (I've never done that at all before), I forgot to go to symphony orchestra and I'm doing what feels like continuous battle with 6th form students who want higher grade predictions that I've given them. And their parents. I felt quite drained by the end of the day.

Now I love my job, but I really could have done without today. Fortunately my colleagues were sympathetic and when I arrived home, my Mum had written to me and stuck little punched out butterflies all over a sheet of writing paper and an envelope to brighten it up a bit which made me smile. And thanks to that I feel much better! Plus I knew that I was going to come home to a some scrapping (see above!) and a couple of cookies that I saved back for myself and a snuggle up in bed with a good book.

Much better.

P.S. So I suppose another lesson is that even something as small as someone sending you a punched out butterfly can really make a difference to somebody's day.
