Everyday our little lake shrinks just a little bit more.

It’s Sunday. The last day of the Half Term break. Tomorrow the next leg of the school at home project commences again. Does it sound bad that I’m not looking forward to it.πŸ€“πŸ€¬πŸ˜±πŸ€―

The delights of Zoom meetings and lessons. The word Zoom has replaced Cauliflower has the one that makes my stomach churn the most. The mandate to use Microsoft Teams then trying to work out which teachers are not using it this week. The soul shattering tiredness which ensues from the daily 630am alarm call. Trying to get my head round chemical reactions, tectonic plate theory and trigonometry. Trying to help with French while being unable to stop helping in German. Trying to explain coding to so dine with dyslexia when I don’t see the point. Not being able to find the right coloured pens and stationery. Failing to get Hawklads homework to submit by the deadlines. Emailing teachers to remind them that Hawklad is still here and still a member of the class. At home but not having the time for housework. Constantly fighting the urge to drown in a swimming pool of extra strength coffee and gorge on every cookie within a 10 mile radius.

Yep not looking forward to that starting again.

But it will be done, I just might go a bit grouchy….

  1. Gosh, I hear you so well! You are amazing that you keep hanging in although it is such a pain. I know you must for your son but with some subjects, I really could not deal with at all! I love what one commenter said about the laugh break! Great idea!

  2. You are doing a great job and so are your kids!!! This is the first time that this type of learning has had to take place! It is a difficult time for everyone (parents, students, and teachers) keep doing the great job you are and someday you will look back and give yourself credit where credit is due!
