Never mind reaching for the feather duster to clear away the cobwebs, it’s more likely that I need to bust out some WD40 to crank up the internal gears of the keyboard.
It’s been a while! Over four months, apparently (WordPress helpfully pointed out my lack of writing achievement a few days ago. But at the time, consuming mince pies was more of a priority).
And I can’t say I have much of an excuse for my absence, except an acute case of ‘Couldnotbebothereditis‘. It’s fair to say I’ve experienced one of my most intense terms at school since qualifying, which has left me drained at times. However, I’ve still managed to do other things, just that picking up the lappy hasn’t floated my boat.
So, I thought I would do a quick round-up of what I’ve been up to since August – because I suspect you’re all falling over yourselves to know… 😉 Also commonly known as ‘shoehorning a post in before the end of the year‘!
“…D4 damager, power to the people!”
In other words, as Wild Child and Fatboy Slim once said, I’m “back once again, with the ill behaviour.”
Well, perhaps no ill behaviour, I’m very low key rebellious these days…
Hello! Have you missed me? I’m mean I’ve been gone a whole two weeks, I’m sure many will be experiencing symptoms of withdrawal by now. Or is that just me? 😉
If you’re on Facebook, you’ll be familiar with those little throw-back reminders they periodically give, bringing up old photos and events.
And then there’s the December ‘Year in Review’ montages that generally tell me I have a love of Game of Thrones, cake and… well just put those two things on loop!
But sometimes, FB takes me back to some status updates that I have no idea about where they have come from. I recognise a few as song lyrics (I was clearly being creatively cryptic!), some I gained context from the attached comments and others have been gems of quotes from children I’ve taught or odd things I’ve seen. But there are many that seem like I was either under the influence of some dodgy substance or just corroborate that I’ve always been weird!
Anyway, I started reading, and reading some more and eventually went back to the beginning of my time line (I highly recommend this, it’s quite entertaining. Unless you only update about the weather…). So to make it not seem like a waste of my eye time, I decided that I’d share some of my favourites. Maybe you can suggest what on earth I was talking about!
