An early start for me today as I was teaching a Year 2 class all day. The teacher had left out all the work and there were no problems with the children so it was a pleasant day. On Fridays we have a celebration assembly when children from each class are celebrated for various reasons. Sometimes adults get called up for a headteacher's sticker too and today my name was called - for tea and coffee making at the parents' evenings and being ready to stand in at a moment's notice. The kids love it when the adults have to go up and make the school's special bow.
I got all my marking done at lunchtime so when I got home a quick change into shorts and Peter and I headed off to the beach for a Sri Lankan curry.
We got there early and didn't have to wait for a table. After we had eaten our delicious curries, a mix of a little chicken curry with plenty of dhal and a couple of salad dishes with poppadoms we went and sat on the beach. I find the gentle murmuring of the people on the beach quite soothing especially as I'm not responsible for any of the children.
I strolled down to the water and paddled for a while. The rash on my leg hasn't become any worse since yesterday so I haven't taken the antibiotics but I thought the salt water would be beneficial. The redness did get less probably because the water was so cold!
Then home for a quiet evening with Peter snoring in front of the tv.
