Can’t believe I haven’t written for almost a month!Well , it was to be expected. Right now its the busy period as a teacher.Report time!! Even though I pride myself on knowing about the kids in my class it’s still a big job putting it into words. There is a sense of pride once the job’s done but there is also the neck pain (literally from time cramped over the computer.) Made me think back to the handwritten report days. If a mistake was going to be made you could bet your bottom dollar it would be in he last paragraph of an otherwise flawless report. I remember tossing them into the bin in a not so happy frame of mind.So , all in all, computers are the way to go.
Saturday will be Tim’s 23rd birthday. I’m sure he was born just yesterday 🙂 Have been busily shopping for gifts. Then will have to repeat it almost immediately in preparation for Christmas. It seems sad having a birthday followed by Christmas so soon then a really long wait til the next gift giving. But!!! as a child it had the added bonus all the new toys were out in the shops ready for Christmas so his birthday presents were always anticipated with excitement having watched all the ads and read all the brochures.
The animal menagerie is getting along quite well. Bugasby has Sheldon under control (using the quick swipe with a paw technique). She messes with his head a bit I think. It’s not unusual to see her lure him into a game of chasings, play for a while then end it fast with a quick swipe and a look of superiority. He is learning to swipe at his own bed in the family room ( a suitcase) after she swipes him. He also walks away with a look of superiority over the suitcase hahaha.
Time to return to the world of reports. Will try to sneak back here more frequently now :))
