good little lifesavers
us getting organised for our scenarios
This week has been more 'full on' than the others. Being in real school mode has meant that my students have begun to reveal their true colours. I still feel very lucky in this regard as I do have a wonderful class who are doing their very best to follow the new routines and ways of learning.
This entire weekend has been spent doing my Bronze Medallion which I thankfully passed. This meant that none of the regular cleaning or school work has been done so that's frustrating. I also chose to skip the pub on Friday night as I wanted to be bright for our 8am start. Oh well, there's always next week for improving my social life.
We did get to play out first game of mixed netball on Wednesday night. We have some very tall men which helps out alot. Unfortunately we got a flogging. I think the score ending up being 19 to 41 or something as equally ridiculous.
My legs muscles gave me grief all week actually. After pump class on Monday night I could barely get out of bed and after netball the soles of my feet were covered in blisters. Although I'm
whinging, I'm really enjoying the sport and social side of things.
We are currently sitting on Blue alert which is the first stage in a cyclone watch. There is talk around town of it getting to a yellow (the next stage) which we are all up for as schools will then be closed!!! Last night the lightning and thunder was spectacular. It's certainly a sight to see... and feel as the whole house shakes from the vibrations.
On Friday afternoon I went down to Woolies as I knew I wouldn't get there on the week end due to my Bronze course. It was a sight and a half! Due to the roads being cut off from the Canarvon floods no trucks can get through. Woolies had signs up everywhere explaining that they did not know how long it would be before another delivery. I got there about 4.40pm and there was almost no fresh produce and alot of the shelves were empty. I guess people get panicy and stock up. I have never seen an Australian shop like this before.
Next week will be a big week and I am already looking forward to it being over. I
have my parent info session, assembly and class mass all on. I also have to finish KIMLIT tests and... it is my final full week of being 28. How depressing. On that note it is definately time to look on the bright side and do this week's top ten.
1. Getting my Bronze Medallion
2. Swimming my Bronze Medallion timed 400m swim in 8 minutes (definite PB)
3. Being on cyclone watch (the possibility of a day off this week sounds like Heaven)
4.Watching the thunder and lightning on Saturday night
5. Riding my bike over to Katie's house for Friday night drinks (no worries about driving)
6. Actually knowing most of the people at Monday night Pump class (my social network is growing)
7. Staying healthy when everyone else at school is sick at the moment
8. Getting to the shops on Friday before ALL the food was gone.
9. Nearly finishing all my programmes for school
10. Finding a stubby holder @ the shops (drinks get hot in seriously 3 minutes)
