After a genuinely wonderful few weeks, work starts back today. I work in a good school with lovely colleagues, but many of my teacher friends aren’t as lucky and consequently my Facebook feed has been filled over the last few days with proclamations of dread and anxiety, funny memes and a wish for a time machine so they can relive the last two weeks all over again. Over the years, I have joined them – it’s difficult not to focus on the dark, cold mornings and the fact that this term (for me at least) is the most pressured.
In the spirit of a New Year and a new start, I have decided to adopt a more positive approach. Therefore, I was awake bright and early this morning, I’m dressed and ready to go and I’m actually looking forward to catching up with all the people that I haven’t seen in a while and hearing about their holiday escapades. In an economy where millions are unemployed and cannot afford to heat their house or buy food, I am lucky and I am grateful to have a stable, well-paying job, and this year I am determined not to forget that.
I hope you all have a lovely Monday!
