Am back, but swamped.


Arrved back 3 days ago. Had the most wonderful time!!
I slept most of Sunday, then went to work. Unfortunately, I gave my students assessment tasks like essays and book reports to do when I was away, so I’ve been buried under a massive pile of corrections. It’s getting bigger, not smaller. At the moment I’m sitting in front of a year 8 class writing their essays, so if I don’t mark year 9 essays while the year 8s are doing theirs, then my weekend is well and truly… well, you know what I mean.

I bought pearls. Real pearls. I’m dripping in them, to tell you the truth. I bought 16 dresses. I have dodgy Tiffany bracelets and necklaces. One word: Shenzhen.

The boys kept everyone and everything alive and did NOT have a party.

I’ll be back to tell you more but now I must delve into the delights of year 9 creative writing.

    Welcome home, it all sounds fab. I too overindulged in pearls, such fun ! All the females in the family are bejeweled.
