It rained heavily last night and continued to rain steadily all through the day. I did go up to check the dams and made sure that all the water flowing down the road was diverted onto the field but that was my only venture outside.
My other job today was to write up the plan for tomorrow's PE lesson when I will be observed by the Head teacher and another teacher who hadn't been able to do his peer observation of my PE last term.
Outside a small flock of pheasants, 1 cock and about 5 hens, have flapped their way up into one of the trees by the stream. They look too big to be sitting up there but I suppose it keeps them safe from foxes.
