    You know you work in a school when:
    You can keep a straight face in any given situation
    You have friends who constantly remark about the amount of holidays you get
    People assume you start work at 9 and finish at 3, with a morning break and an hour for lunch
    The word 'Ofstead' makes you want to cry
    Anytime you go ANYWHERE at all, you are guaranteed to see one of your pupils
    ......
    (Please carry on..!!)

    Your husband/children say "Sorry, Mrs X" when you grumble at them about something!

    You detest the rain..because they equal wet break and lunch and that equals cranky children
    You think the person who said that a full moon causes children to go crazy was probably onto something...
     
  6. You are on holiday, far, far from home, see something on a shelf and think 'oh, that would be great for a lesson...'

    If you knock into someone in the street by accident, you automatically go to say "Sorry Miss/Sir!"

  11. your husband tells you that you can't possibly be tired as you've only played with the children all day!!

    Parents see you in a shop and tell their children " behave or I'll get Mrs/Mr xxxx.

    You have a shelf full of best teacher mugs and teddies.

    Your family ask "Is this rubbish or a resource?" before throwing something away
     
  15. You say to your husband, 'look at me when I'm talking to you!'.

  16. At home, phrases like whoops -a-daisy and 'oh dear' are used instead of swearing when things go wrong.

    and you get odd looks off the other half!
     
  17. Twice a year you come home with a random selection of chocolates and various wines.
    You expect everyone to be quiet when you speak - even in a pub :)
    You go shopping and spend more time trying to spot kids before they spot you.
    It shocks you when people use your first name.

    When you are in the supermarket you have to stop yourself from shouting "Walk please!" to all the children who are running up and down the aisles!

    Not just me then!!
     
  20. Your boot is full of plastic bottles as it's capacity this week for Maths!
    You're eyes light up at the thought of Quality Street wrappers as they could be used for something creative!
