Sun in England!

This week has been fairly uneventful, except that the sun was out every day!!  Everyone at school, including me, broke out the short sleeved shirts for work, and I even wore a skirt without stockings.  Unfortunately I had to have Friday off work, as I wasn’t well.  It seems I just have a cold, but it hit me pretty hard at school on Thursday, so I didn’t want to make myself worse, or infect anyone else … plus I just didn’t have the energy to be standing up in front of classes all day.

On Friday afternoon I got a phone call asking if I could come in for an interview.  Going back a step, I spent the week applying for 5 different jobs – to start in September, full-time.  To cut a long story short, apparently what they do over here is have an interview with you, and then give you some time to prepare a lesson, which they then watch you teach.  It means you have to have a day off, but because they all do it, the schools don’t mind too much.  I still think it’s a bit rude, but if that’s what they all do, then I guess I’ll have to go with it.  The interview is on Wednesday at Langley Grammar School.  I was told it was a really nice school, so we’ll see what happens.

In the meantime, we are having a lazy weekend, pottering around.  I spent the morning talking to Eenie and then Mum on the phone, which was really nice.  We put a load of washing on, and Adrian just got back from doing the grocery shopping.  We are now going to have lunch, and then go and test drive one of the new VW Fox cars.  I think we’ll then go to the butcher, do some more washing, do some housework, and have another lazy day tomorrow as well.

Although nothing exciting has happened, I thought I would fill you in.  Love to all xoxo
