More “relieved” than “happy” in honesty. Not been a great day, but I did get all of my S4 class’s prelims marked and I’m (generally!) quite pleased with them. Just glad to have finished another big stack of work.
Not an easy one today. After working a very long day and getting home after 9pm, I was tired and just needing to relax and feel comfortable. Only things just got worse when I got in and I’m utterly bloody miserable. The only thing today which raised a genuine smile and made me feel happy was getting a hug off my kids before I left the house at 8am. Everything else can just jump in the sea (to be polite).
OK, it may seem a little mercenary, but I usually struggle to find pupils to tutor. Maths and English definitely don’t have this problem, but Computing isn’t a compulsory subject. So I was rather chuffed this week to get two pupils, who live a couple of streets apart. Both good students, and I still enjoy teaching so it’s a win/win. Assuming I help them get good grades in the summer at least!
