Ticker to Goal

Spanner in the works.

Don't you just hate it when things do not go to plan?

I'm behind with my school work because I was enjoying myself far too much (having fun with A2, working out and watching TV) over Christmas to get it done - d'oh!

We started back today with a day of meetings. There was no coffee in the staff room. At break time I headed down to the dining room where we were being given chocolate croissants. Yum. Then at lunch I choose the ravioli (a small portion) rather than the burger and wedges but was then given a chocolate doughnut.

I was cross with myself after I ate it. I texted A2 about how they were trying to corrupt my good intentions.
"Just don't eat it!" he said.
"Thanks babe," I replied, "that hadn't occured to me."

Later this afternoon I was given some sad ish news. It's been expected but I'm a little sad nonetheless. The teacher I am covering for is hoping to return to work after the half term break in February. I'm loving it so much at this school with my lovely class, I shall really miss them. I am pleased she is better though. That's a good thing. I just wish there were jobs for both of us.

In other news, our very own Beth has started a new blog. Stop by and say hello.

Ugh. I hate when the workfolk bring in bad treats. And it's always right when I'm trying to start being good. Bummer about the job.

That Beth chick is boring. More A2! :) Hope you find another new and even better job/class!!

Is that Beth Ann? I'm trying to follow, but I can't find the button! I'll keep trying!! Sometimes it's hard to remember we do have the choice to not eat something - I know I've felt countless times in the past that once I've seen it or thought of it, or been handed it, that it's inevitable that I'm going to put it in my mouth! Stay on it girl - you can do it!

Uncertainty at work is crap! My school had 9 teachers leave at the end of last year (including the 4 executive) and 4 newies coming! It will be crazy when we start in February.

There are days when I wish people brought crap into work but most days I'm glad we don't. It's a hard fight to go through.

I love the "just don't eat it" - oh, if only it was that simple...

Oh no, are they able to find a place for you at the school? :(

Also, "don't eat it" is terrible advice after the fact! LOL
