I've had such a fabby day today I am really buzzing from it. I always enjoy Fridays in school because we have a really good routine and it is always enjoyable. Today as usual we spent the first hour in the computer suite which went really smoothly (possibly because we had 6 missing!!)

After break I was really chuffed when the teacher said she was gonna let me teach a session, my task was to teach the children to read the word 'the' it's quite a tricky one for them to learn because it's not phonetic but we used a really great activity for them to learn it and they seemed to pick it up well. She said I'd delivered the lesson really well and I really enjoyed it.

I also managed to find time whilst I was doing some jobs to have a chat with a couple of members of staff that I get on really well with which was really nice. Being off work for so long really makes me appreciate the social contact of being in a work environment. They both had some really encouraging advice for me and it's really building my confidence for the interview, I'm almost excited!

I've also been really proud of myself this week as I've made it into school despite having very little voice and a bad cough. Not a big achievement to most but only 6 months ago something like this would have had me laid up for days and certainly not allowed me to keep working. Anyway my reward for my hard work is a lovely relaxing weekend so I can fight this cold off. I'm gonna do lots of scrapping. I have two Christmas pressies to finish, a Gogo kit to sink my teeth into and I might make some decs too, bliss! Add to this a dose of Strictly and maybe a spot of shopping and I think that sounds like a rather lovely way to spend the weekend!

Anyway, enough about me, what are you lovely peeps up to this weekend? Hope whatever you do is enjoyable xxx

p.s. Thank you for sticking with me through a rather self indulgent post!!! xxxx
