It’s that time of year again – have been looking through the posts of 2013-2014 and doing a bit of reminiscing whilst listening to some songs from my past. Perhaps a dangerously sentimental mix. Can’t believe that it’s all gone so fast. Can’t believe Mike and Sarah haven’t been with us forever or that we’re already saying goodbye to Sophie.
What a year. My most challenging 12 months so far and probably the year where my school eyes have leaked the most. However it is also the year where I have received the most literal and metaphorical hugs from you. My school family. ‘Special’.
This summer I am looking forward to:
Reminding my children that I am their Mum – again
Reading books without falling asleep in the middle of a sentence
Having the mental capacity to understand pedagogy and specifications first read through
Throwing things away
Writing a home action plan rather than a school action plan
Swimming in the ocean
Writing words that don’t relate to success criteria
Replying to ‘What are you thinking about?’ with a ‘Nothing’ and it being true.
Really, really smiling.
Laughing without wondering if it’s hysteria.
Have a wonderful holiday with lots of lovely days.
All – not quite as I love my Slocombe 3 too, and there are a few others scattered about – my love
