Threw a sicky yesterday (don't worry moral guardians I'm on supply so wasn't paid) and took some me time. Working in a very challenging school and I'm just sick of the constant poor behaviour, lack of support, lack of organisation and of feeling like a total outsider in the staffroom. As such, about 5 minutes from home I decided to call in, didn't even tell my other half. After the quick call I took myself off for a massive cooked breakfast, bought a new laptop (refurbed but new to me) and then went home to an empty house and had a long, luxurious, hot bath. Actually managed to muster a smile in the afternoon and was good company for my partner in the evening. Back in hell high today but hopefully not for long.
