Dear work, It’s good to be back with colleagues I have worked with for years, but also nice that there are some new faces too.
Dear cakes, Why are you so tempting?
Dear parcel delivery companies, Why do some of you deliver parcels two days earlier than your email says, but others have us waiting in the house all day and nothing comes?
Dear weather (I’m afraid I seem to be writing to you a lot), Please can you make sure that heavy rain does not fall during the school day. Our children don’t seem to be able to cope with the excitement! Oh, and wet and windy weather at the same time as a full moon is a recipe for an over excited class of children (who have not been able to get outside at break times), and not much meaningful work being completed.
Dear pavement cleaner, What happens to all the green plastic bags that you carefully fill with the leaves you have just swept up, and then leave in groups beside trees along our road? I see the little piles of them every 100 yards or so, but I never see anyone take them away.
I hope you have a good Friday – it’s nearly the weekend!
