One f***ing week to end the longest half term in history (well it's felt like that anyway). Finally recovered from an incredibly long parents evening on Thursday (three and a half hours with one short break and no refreshments) and then a frantic day Friday writing all my form's references for college using the most unfriendly computer program in existence. We are doing end of term tests with our kids as well this week (this will go down a storm) and I have been given a job to do during the holiday that I really want to get done because it will really help the kids with their revision for Summer. If that wasn't enough I have to endure CPD on Monday which is someone from another school giving a blow-by-blow account of their recent OFSTED inspection (can't wait) and then Christmas show rehearsals on Tuesday and Wednesday. At least we have a half-day on Friday ....and then I hit the shops.
