Urgh, been so long since I posted. About eleven days or so I’m guessing. I’ve just been so unbelievably tired. Some of you will know I’m a teacher, and that I got my first teaching job several months ago. I love this job, I really do, but boy, am I tired.
I feel like I do nothing but work. I get to school early, and once I’ve got a cup of tea, I don’t get up from the computer until the bell rings. I work through break, lunch and for about an hour or more after school. Then I come home and get some more work done. I know that I only work over three days, but wow, it’s exhausting. I’m finding it difficult to get a work:life balance. All the time I’m not working I keep thinking that I’ve got more stuff I could be doing. I have to go over everything several times to make sure I’ve not forgotten anything. And then again. And then again. I panic that I’ve forgotten something. That maybe that won’t work. That I won’t have time to do that. That they won’t get the work finished in time, and I have to take time out of another lesson to get it finished, therefore not leaving time to get their next weeks work done. My head feels like there is a riot going on most of the time. I’m working tomorrow and have not long finished printing off everything that they need for tomorrow. A lot. My filing still needs done. I need to buy some more folders, and some more poly pockets, and then some more stuff for art – pasta, split pins and numerous other little things.
I’ve got to also get some bicarbonate of soda, some vinegar and red food colouring. To make a volcano. That MIGHT be a fun project to do on a Saturday afternoon when A is here, but we shall see.
I’ve been going home knackered every evening, sitting in bed doing some more work, and then just not being in the mood for anything else. I have done practically nothing I enjoy for the past few weeks. For example, the following photo is EVERYthing I have knitted in the past two and a half weeks. (Bar a very, very simple wash cloth I gave to a friend).
Pitiful really 😦 I’ve done no spinning, no crochet, no sewing or anything. I’d love to do some more sewing, but lack of material and time. Oh, I made a dog blanket just before I started back at school.
Freddy loves it.
Some old fleece I had in the cupboard, along with some orange blanket type material. He adores it, and even pulls it out of his toy box for when he wants to lie down on the floor in the evenings. 🙂
Anyway, I don’t know what I’m going to do now. My eyes are aching and I’m feeling like I want nothing more than a cup of tea, a hot water bottle and something good to watch on the telly. (It’s only 7pm 😦 ) I might watch Benidorm again. It was the new series and absolutely hilarious. Anyone else watch that? New episode on tonight, yay!
Hope everyone has a good evening.
