Tumbled into bed last night after Guides and a long week at school with a bowl of rice pudding (and golden syrup with little white chocolate stars for bedtime, obviously) and just though....Yes. I needed this.
It's been a busy week: school concert, meeting parents, marking exam papers, last minute exam-preparation with the older students, and an explosive nosebleed. Not me, a pupil. However, a pupil with reasonable common sense who bled into his hands and on his clothes very neatly, whilst avoiding getting any blood anywhere in the classroom. I think I'll give him a merit sticker.
Of course this riled up the rest of my excitable class and found me exclaiming "EVERYONE SIT DOWN AND TAKE A WHOLE HANDFUL OF CALMING TABLETS". They did. And one student looked at me, all kindly condescension and said "I think you mean a chill pill, miss".
This is the kind of week I've had. Could be one for the scrapbook though. Because even though it's been hectic, it's been fun.
So today, it's going to be casual lunch with a friend, and Eurovision + pizza + mockery tonight. Anyone else have a Eurovision tradition?
P.S. I will soon get back to folks who are interested in the London Scrappy Bloggy Picnic. Yay! But so far, we're thinking afternoon in Green Park.
