I did have a diary on the pink site, but I read it back once and deleted it not long after. Okay…I read half of it, then decided that the best course of action was to set the alarm clock off to wake me up after I had gazed at the 2nd half.
I kind of miss doing it though. Sharing my thoughts, trials and tribulations, so I thought I’d do another..even if it’s just for a while.
Today: Got up at 6:00am. Did some housework and wrote some music. Played the piano and chatted with kiddos
Worked from home this morning, so lots to do, but at least I can spare my voice. (Sore throat following a cold)
Time to start my proper day. This started as normal….make porridge, forgot to cook it, ate half then realised and put the bowl in the microwave. Turned it on and then promptly forgot about it.
Turn on computer after son has left for school. I have 10 powerpoints to do for school and my lesson plan. No probs. I am preparing 200 children for the carol service (which is mainly music). They need to learn 10 Christian Christmas carols/songs, which I either obtain or write. We usually get a great selection of fun stuff which goes down well, but this year I have a Yr 4 from hell. Reckon I’ll be bald by Christmas! Memo to me: put wigs down on Karions Christmas List
Next it’s off to computer. Turn on, wait for windows to load, plug in memory stick. Notice smoke, see some sparks..pull out memory card. You know….normal day
So now none of my usb ports are working. Blast. I need to print off stuff, update my ipod (which I use for all the backing tracks at school), move my files via the memory stick to the computer attached to the whiteboard. Ummm. Not happy. Find a solution by setting up the family computer and doing it all on there. Not ideal and took ages to set up as I like, but at least it works
So work on powerpoints, which contain the lyrics for the songs. Happy with the backgrounds and graphics I have used. I will play them via the interactive whiteboard in the hall at school…
Finish powerpoints and synch them with the music, so they automatically change the page as the verses progress. How smart am I?
Write lesson plans. This is easy. Aim: to teach them something and hype them up sufficiently to drive to drive their class teachers nuts for the rest of the day. Etc etc. My school plans are always a constant source of amusement amongst my colleagues. No idea why
Lunch: Remove cold porridge from microwave. Have some broccoli and stilton soup followed by some fruit and greek yoghurt.
Afternoon : Go to St Sweethearts. Nice Much easier that St Chavs that I had yesterday. Put plans into action. Watch teachers mop brows as I leave. Success!!
Straight on to the hospital.
Enough waffle for the moment.
