DD goes to Australia in less than two weeks so we have been sorting all last minute paperwork, banking, phones, luggage locks, travel adapters etc because I know it will all be MY fault if something gets forgotten!! I just keep on feeling I'm going to burst into tears at any moment when I stop to think she really is going - I don't know how I'm going to cope with the worry :(
Did a flying visit to my parents in the north so she could say goodbye as they won't be seeing her for the next 8 months and took in a bit of shopping and sightseeing in the city of York. We decided against having tea at Betty's as the waiting line outside was too long!
This weekend she will be going to visit her other set of grandparents at the opposite end of the country.
I have been taking the opportunity as the weather has been patchy to start to go through years of teaching files as I now do not need to have all subjects kept as I will not be returning to the life of a full scale classroom teacher - this too is a little difficult to get my head around but as I am now concentrating on special needs I know this will be my area of interest from now on so goodbye to many of my geography specialist resources and files! The sad truth is there is little point in passing these on to anyone else at school as I know they have so little time and inclination to actually do anything with them or plan other lessons except those they already have for their classes so it's into the recycling bin they will be going and books & CD Roms to the charity shop.
And finally a little freebie the rest of these ghostly numbers to 10 for anyone else who would like them :)
Have a great weekend!
