I haven’t joined in with Michelle’s Reasons to be Cheerful for a couple of weeks. I think I’ve found it really difficult to think of the reasons to be honest, but I have been really busy… Ok, enough excuses. Here are my reasons to be cheerful this week- I couldn’t not join in!
ITS HALF TERM!!!
Yes, I needed the capital letters. Yes, it is number one on the list. Only a teacher will understand the joy of half term and with it the briefest of respites from marking, planning, telling children to sit on their bottoms, telling children to stop telling tales… So there is more to my job than that, but it is a really hard job sometimes. When your baby has you up in the night and you don’t have a desk to sit behind til 5pm. I had a job like that and it was boring. My job is never boring now but it is exhausting. So half term is a real reason to be cheerful, to re-charge my batteries and to get ready to start again in a week’s time.
