Are We Nearly There Yet?

Are We Nearly There Yet? Yes we are, but it doesn’t feel like it. The trouble with such a short term is that we still do everything that we would do in a normal length term, but all crammed into a shorter period of time. Then again, maybe it’s just the trouble with me. Must. Get. More. Organised.

Whatever the cause, the result is that I am absolutely cream crackered. I look pretty terrible and (no offence intended here folks) so do a few of my colleagues, some of us have that run down, tired look, as if we are about to succumb to a traditional start-of-holiday-lurgy.

Non-teaching friends have no sympathy with my current state, in fact some of them laughed at me when I went home early on Saturday night. They are rotters, all of them.

Yes, I do get lots and lots of holidays. No, I’m not moaning about having to do a mere five weeks work between holidays. All I’m saying is that I’m exhausted in a way that never happened before I was a teacher.

Back in the olden days when I did a “real” job and only had a few weeks holiday a year, I twice had to take my holiday in a panic at the end of the year when I suddenly realised I still had most of it left. I can’t imagine doing that now.

Anyway, I might have to shut up moaning and actually deal with the very large pile of paper that I am currently ignoring.

Only three more get ups.

Roll on 3pm Thursday.

Are we nearly there yet?
