What do you do to cheer yourself up while in a long term role or whatever in a school and you either feel tired, bored or miserable? 1. I just watched Ellen interview Eddie Murphy and that really cheered me up. I forgot how much I like his films. 2. When I do day to day supply, I normally try and get out at lunchtime and take a walk around to explore the area in case there are interesting shops or parks. During summer months I find lovely parks or places to go to. 3. Sit and meditate in the car to pull my tired head back together.
