I used to be indecisive…

…but now I'm not so sure

half term break



Next week is the half term break for schools in my area.  Teachers now have a few days to catch up with all the admin, marking and general organising that they haven’t been able to find the time to do since the Christmas break!  They might also have time to go into the classroom and tidy it, or put up a few displays … schools are so much easier to work in when the children are on holiday. 😉


Happy Saturday!

  14. Enjoy the break…and rest up after you get organized! We all need that once in awhile. 🙂

  15. Have a lovely holiday. Are you going anywhere special? Ours is a ten week term so we don’t start holidays until Good Friday…seven weeks to go.

  16. I smiled wistfully and shook my head when I read this post, Elaine. Why? As a school girl I used to sit at the kitchen table during the holidays and watch my Dad correcting exercise books, preparing lessons and planning for the school’s “O” and “A” level exam periods. Then I’d go to see friends whose parents were harping on about how much holiday the teaching profession got, and secretly wished I could ram one of my Twix biscuits up each nostril.

  17. My mother was also in Education and whole summers were spent in her office with other teachers marking and double checking the big end of year exams… and the rest of the year she was busy helping setting the next one on top of her regular work. She always left for work early and came home late so I was raised by nannies and housekeepers for a great part.
    It was a classic case of “quality” time instead of “quantity” time and I know from experience that that is nice in theory but we were an “instant family” of strangers when we got together and I wouldn’t recommend it.
    Teachers and others in the education profession have a reputation of having half the year off in holidays but the reality is that good teachers don’t use much of that time for an actual holiday.

Now it's your turn
