Aaaaand summer is over

Today marks the absolute, official end of my summer holidays and my return to school.

Unusually (for me) I am feeling as positive as I think I ever will. My main plan of attack is to do my job in a uncomplaining manner and keep my neck wound well and truly in, below the radar.

This may not last.

(I can hear several people who know me well, particularly in the workplace, snorting with derision already).

Growth mindset MoFos.  Growth mindset.

I say less Trunchbull and more Miss Honey, or Jean Brodie (but without the fling with the art master). Whilst also trying to keep my crew of awesome TAs from losing their shit.

Have ‘Wentworth’ style hoody for playground duty & to use as emergency ‘work dressing gown’.

I am ready.  I will not lose my shit (much). I will remain calm (most of the time).  I can do this!

Stop my brain, I want to get off

(At first I totally spelled brain as Brian in the title.  Which kind of proves what I am saying.)

So, here’s a little meme I found which amused me today (how do you say that BTW? is it meme like in ‘theme’ or meme like in ‘them’?)

Anyhoo.

                                                          Just saying.

Meanwhile.  In the ongoing quest for my mind to keep me over-occupied and whirring like a degu in a wheel (they’re coming… eventually… the cage is set up and everything.  Just waiting for hay, food and erm, well degus)

The bee which decided to buzz around in my bonnet last night was all about http://www.worldbookday.comWhich isn’t even until March 6th. 

All I could think about last night though was what I could wear if I was dressing up, as a character from a book.  Something that reflected certain aspects of myself and of course, which could easily be pulled out of the bag (or ordered cheaply from ebay – whichever).

🙂

This is how my mind works – Last week I lay awake thinking about the height of degu cages and fearing for the literacy inadequate and mathematically challenged children of the community.

Anyway, even though it hasn’t even been agreed yet that we are even doing a costume day (or in fact, anything at all) for World Book Day. Here are a few ideas, most of which, I am several decades too old for to carry off – apart from Haversham of course.

Trouble is with these literary character favourites of mine,  most would be a total mystery to the children, and (I should imagine) to some of the adults.

Perhaps I should just go for the comedy element and use it as an excuse to purchase another onesie.

Have to say that this is the favourite question ever that I’ve been asked at my job:-

“You run this school don’t you Miss?”

We’re gonna ruuuule the school!

Well I missed THAT memo in the staff meeting but I’ll be looking forward to that mahoosive increase in my paycheck next month 🙂
