Inspected again.

The school has been inspected again. Don't think it went as well as OFSTED he watched my RE lesson. I was teaching Hinduisum not my best subject. He should have come on Friday when I was doning Science and we were learning about evaporation and I have the class outside pertending to be molecules in a puddle. Why can they understand a concept which is really hard and you can;t even see it happening but they don't got the muiltpication is just repeated addition.

Starting to get all Christmasy. Going to a panto soon. We don't do school plays thank God because I'm only just caught up with last weeks to do list.

Going to wrap some presents now. things have started to arrive in the post. BT sorted out. Only two proper teaching weeks left untill Christmas and have just found out we don't have to be back until the 7th of Jan. Plus Easter is crazy this year as well and we have extra long.

Sorted at last.

Finally we have made progress with BT. Someone with a little bit of sense has spoken to us and resolved our problem with the installation charge. It has only taken 2 months.
Not long to go now before we break up from school. I'm back to shopping on the Internet for Christmas goodies. Last year I think most people ended up with the 3 for 2 offer at Boots.
Hopefully I will do better this year.
I'm still trying to get round to the picture to see Elizabeth we never made it the other week.
We have put our Christmas tree up. It has been up about 2 weeks. It was new and we didn't see the point of leaving it in the box until the 1st.
I have brought an advent candle and calender.

I have a lovely suprise on Tuesday.
After I sent a maoning Email to Lush asking them how I'm I to get stains out of my bath they sent me a parcel with some Lush goodies in them. Realy pleased didn't expect anything. If only BT were like that.

A good day at school. Have eaten lots of biscuits. It is Design and Tec week. We are making to Tudor biscuit and like all good researchers we have to research the competition. So pigged out on biscuits.

Bt didn't ring. Lush hasn't replied to my Email. How Rude

Hair Hell


I brought a hair dye from lush. Red. It comes in a henna block and you have to make it in to a goo yourself. his involves blue rubber gloves, a saucepan and a cheese grater (don't ask). Considering the price of the stuff you would have thought it would have come already made up. Alway I am sat in the living room with tin foil on my head, a bit like the kids from signs (I couldn't find any clingfilm). I have also managed to dye the bath a lovely bath and try and I might the stuff won't come off. I don't know what John is going to say. If you have any ideas what can get dye off a bath let me know please.

All in all the stuff isn't worth the effort. I still have 5 squares left. You are meant to use it all but I'm tight. I reconmend anyone wanting to try it to think very carefuly before you buy. Though it is better for your hair because it is all natual and no chemicals. It is really worth the effort. Would cares if your hair might fall out.


PS Do you think the pic.

Help me.

We don't have a telly. We just to be quite sweet when we first moved in together, we played cards and games all the time. That was BI (before the internet.) He is obsessed with it . and I getting like that as well. I need help.
BT was meant to ring tonight and haven't done so I'm quite cheesed off with them. I was reading in the Daily Mail that their Moto is putting customers first. What rubbish.

Golden compass.

John wants to go and see the golden compass film. Can anyone think of an excuse to get out of it because I think it looks rubbish? I loved the Philip Pullman book and don't really want to watch it Americanised. I think the only thing English is the song by Kate Bush.
I don't like the Lyra kid, she is the annoying one from War of the Worlds. I normally like Nicole Kidman. Maybe I will just go to watch Daniel Craig. Mummmmm!!!!!
Why Oh Why could they not find a nice English kid and make it in England.

Why Oh Why have they changed the name. Could the audience not cope with Northern Lights. Was there a dodgy film of the same name?

I know I'm being negative, but it is what I do best.


Feeling better.

I'm feeling less grumpy now. Have rang BT they are playing us up. Charged us £125 randomly and have now cut off. John takes the softly softly approach and I used the firm, calm and slightly cheesed off approach. Guess who got further?

So sad

If you were to google the words fishcakes and dopperganger this is the only website which would come up.

Why Oh Why did I become a teacher?

Fair enough I did have a sort of day off today, but I still had to be in school, and I still left at 5:30.
I seem to have no social life at all. I start work at 7:45 and leave at 5:30. I suppose that isn't too bad, but then I get home and work until 9:30. I don't go out, I have given up drinking, clubbing and I feel tired all the time. When I go to bed I often can't sleep because I'm thinking about the next day or about the piles of stuff I haven't got round to doing yet. I'm never seem to catch up.
I keep thinking that it is all because it is my first year and thing will get easier. But I'm told not, there are still teachers who are in school an hour before me and leave after me, dragging a huge pile of marking to the car and they have a family and small children as well. I don't understand how they manage.

As you can see, I'm feeling a bit run down. I can't go out on a weekday and I can't over exert myself at the weekend because I spend all week getting over it.

The house is a tip there is mountians of washing, to hell with the ironing. I think it will be easier to buy new clothes and pots and thrown the dirty ones away. After the party we had the other weekend I asked John if we could move so we could leave all the rubbish behind.

Anyway roll on the weekend. I'm not going to do anything apart from watch the washing pile increase. I'm cooking with the kids on Friday, I hope they remember to washing their hands.

Car went for a MOT to day. It wasn't as bad as a thought it might be. Cost £150 altogether to get it fixed. Still won't a new one though.
Have a day off tomorrow, I'm in school but not teaching. I think it is worst planing for someone else than doing it yourself.
I have to do collective worship on friends on Thursday so if anyone know of any stories or stuff I can do let me know. Also the kids in my class have to do a collective worship next week.

Think I in the wrong job.

Oh my God. I've had a heck of a day.
Imagine having a stonker of a headache and having to spend the day with an over active child who just won't calm down or shut up or listen to anything you have to say, plus it answers back because they of course know best. Now imagine the same situation but this time multiply it by 30. I think I should have locked myself in the cupboard. Oh plus in the afternoon we had music in which all 30 children were playing percussion instruments rather loudly. 
Well headache has gone. I'm off to the pictures to see Elizabeth. Im not going to any work and I consider watching Elizabeth as work because we are doing the Tudors and it is research. 
Car is in for an MOT tomorrow morning at 8. I need to clean it as it still has stuff in it from holiday. 
Wish my car luck.

Christmas shopping.

Went Christams shopping today in Lincoln. It was as bad as thought it was going to be. The place was empty, except for Primark whihc I stayed clear from. I ended up getting a few bits. I was going to get Chiristmas decorations but had a job finding any. So if anyone knows where to get some nice ones from let me know. I don't want tack. Now I have a house I'm all grown up.


PS I made this cake and decorated it. It was Dad 60th last Sept had a big party for him.

Thought this was quite cute.

Christmas is coming.

Well Christmas is going and I am back on the internet looking for ideas what to get people. It doesn't seem that long since I was doing the same thing last year.

So any of my family who read this I want ideas please. if you don't give me a list you will end up with stuff you don't want. I think I will buy you something completly horrid and you will have to pretend you like it and everytime I come round to your house I will meantion it so you will have to feel obliged to have it out on sort all the time. I'm thing something like a pink flock virgin Mary or a stuffed crow, or a huge plastic carrige clock made out of shells which lights up.

So please ideas.

Dear Santa

Thank you for last years presents. This year I would like a car.

Your best friend Sam.

I can't remember summer looking this good.
I want a new car. Mine is rubbish. The list of thing wrong with it is getting longer.
Clutch is making weird noises.
Handbrake feels funny.
It no long likes petrol so when I fill it up it shoots it back out at me. My new perfume of oduor la petrol.
The electric windows have given up. (tthis is a good thig as it mean John can't wind down the window when I'm driving.)
It keeps stalling still.
It has a small but important leak in the radiator.
That is about it.

I'm back

We are going to a tupper ware party. We use to go to Anne Summers parties but we are now old.

So sorry

I'm so sorry that it has taken me so long to write this. Over a month since. But to make up for it I have prepared a list of excuses.

The dreaded Ofsted have been in.

I was kidnapped and John refused to pay the ransom. So I have to chew my way out.

The dog ate my computer.

John is arguing with BT so we can't get the internet.

Boston is a hell hole and so backward it doesn;t know what a computer is.

I'm working so hard that every evening my brain is fried.

Still living with John I can't get near to the computer to go on the internet. I'm only on it now because I have locked him out when he took the rubbish out.

Working full time has led me to drink.

I'm out clubbing all the time.

I'm not allow to use electricity because of how much it costs. John in insists on even taking to little light out of the fridge.

We spend all our time in the bedroom.

We argue so much that we have thrown our laptops at each other.

I have died.

Please appriciate the effort I have made here. I should be making books.
