Scatterbrained Monday.

Driving to the school today felt like just another work day - as if I'd just had an average weekend and was heading back in for a new week. Absolutely bizarre!

Today was so strange, I felt a bit lost without a classroom of my own this year. The room which I'm sharing with Belinda is the same room I had last year, but since it's not really mine anymore, it's different! The other classroom I'm sharing in is all sorted out too (all these organised ladies, sheesh, making me feel bad!) and since I'm just supporting for my other two days, I really don't have much to do with that at all.

Basically, I'm a big ol' fish out of water.

But it's still going to be a good year! People will just have to not mind me if I wander around with my head in the clouds for the first couple of weeks until I get my routine organised, and know what I'm expected to be doing in each of the classrooms.

Excited for the kidlets to come back tomorrow! I have about 10 of the kids I taught this year in the 1/2 class, and another handful in the 3/4 class, so it's going to be good fun. Right now, I'm off to print off some tray and bag labels, just to make things a bit easier tomorrow. I hope your Monday was just dandy.

As I was driving my little one to school today (no pupil free day today here in QLD) I thought about you and how you are handling going back to work after a wonderful holiday. Both son and I were very sombre and quiet in the car :(

Good to see you're in keen spirits! I hope this year goes really well for you. :)

Work schmork. I feel like I never even went on a holiday, had Christmas, my birthday, New Years or anything. Ho-hum.

So... how long is your summer break then? Do you get more time off during your winter break? We pretty much have from mid-June to September 1 off. Plus a week in December, a week in February, and a week in April.
