Yippee!!!!! I have my morning off today, then I go in for two periods of year 7 English in the afternoon and then that’s the end of work for a whole week. Hong Kong here I come!!! 4 sleeps to go. And the internet provides again – I’m absolutely LOVING ‘The Walking Dead’, much to my students’ amazement. Apparently I appear too old to have decent taste in entertainment. Then I see a picture that depicts exactly how I’ll be feeling in the last period today.
Feeling pretty glad I told the year 7s that we’ll have one full period of wide reading, because Ryan18 had his school formal last night so I was up till 1.30ish ferrying him and his friends FROM the formal TO his friend’s house to get changed then TO the city at 12.30AM for the after-party. *yawn*
Anyway, back to happier topics. Today I’m going to pick up some Hong Kong dollars and photocopy my passport and travel insurance docs. Then the weekend will be devoted to getting the household organised and packing to go. I have to make sure the pantry is stocked with the male staples of tins of tuna, tins of pineapple pieces and packets of rice, oats, weetbix and pasta. Eggs won’t be a problem as long as they remember to keep the chooks fed and watered (fingers crossed) and the mammals will be able to vocalise when they need their food bowls filled morning and night. The freezer has meat, bread and veggies and the fridge has veggies and cheese. I’m leaving the thermomix at home so they can cook whatever they want. What more could they
