The start of what is always the worst few weeks of the year for me….school report writing! Thirty to do, each of which have 7 pages, ugh! You’d think after all this time it would get easier but no it gets harder. First of all we have to input up to 104 assessments per child and then write about four sentences on how they’ve done in each of six subjects. One report takes about an hour and a half. Once I’ve done one I’m not usually ready to write another for a good while as I have to clear my mind and start thinking about the next child. Back in the days when I used to smoke, it would be ciggie time between each report, I found it very helpful! This afternoon I’ve updated all my assessments and written two reports so am quite pleased with that. The biggest accomplishment is to actually have started as that’s always the hardest part of all.
Last night we watched ‘The Last King of Scotland‘. A fascinating account of the rise and fall of the Ugandan dictator, Idi Amin. Forrest Whittaker so deserved his best actor Oscar but the scrumptious James McAvoy wuz robbed of the best supporting award! His acting was faultless throughout. I can’t remember who he lost out to now, he better have been good!
Thought I’d just post a couple of photos of something I bought on Saturday. I’m a bit of a sucker for pot pourri……not just any old pot pourri though. It has to look beautiful and be very tastefully scented. I find that M&S fulfil on both counts. This week I bought a box of sweetpea and hyacinth and one of lavender.
