Well that’s it the summer break is over. I can’t write back to work on Monday as I’ve been in every week, not every day, but I have managed to reduce my to do list!
This past week I have enjoyed wonderful weather, with fantastic company and great sport and entertainment.
Last Saturday at Twickenham to watch Ireland v England was full of fun, although the tramp experience on the tube home will provide a lasting memory on Debbie and I!
Sunday began with a walk , the four of us, then brekkie in the garden.
There was the third ashes test to save, but after 3 quick wickets it was looking unlikely, and then there was Ben Stokes-phenomenal innings from him to win the game. I was getting ready to go out, but delayed drying my hair it was so 😬.
I’d booked to see a screening of Romeo and Juliet ( Baz Luhrmann ) as it was in a Chapel and soundtrack sung by a gospel choir.
Amazing, emotional and poignant for my friend Debbie. Kissing you by Des’ree, a favourite of her son Luke’s, as was the film which Debbie had never seen, was stunning to hear in the epic venue of the Union Chapel. Suffice to say we both had a very emotional reaction.
A tramp free journey home this time, which was good!
Monday and a drive to Surrey to visit Kevin’s cricket club. One circumnavigation of the pitch, a catch up with old players ( one of Kevin’s old PE teachers was there! ), great food as per, then the journey home. We bought some raffle tickets and I won a £50 voucher to spend at Ely’s, a Wimbledon department store, where Kevin’s Nan used to work!
Tuesday to Friday found me at work mostly tidying up loose ends and prepping for start of the new AY. Our sixth form numbers this year look very encouraging; challenge now is to ensure we have sufficient facilities to meet their needs!
I have also had more emotional ups and downs, this month has not been the best, and they say from the mouths of babes, and that has definitely been the case.
New month tomorrow, and I intend to finish the last third of this year on a high ( at least higher than I am now) and finding my joie de vivre! I need to accept that only I can change how I react, how I deal with things, I can’t change others but I will find peace if I accept who I am, with all my foibles.
I have much to look forward to coming up so I’ll keep you posted. 💕💕💕
