Autumn Break

Today is the first day of my autumn break. After two months of teaching, I now have five days of holiday. Technically, the autumn break is only two days long, but together with a weekend and one day of bank holiday it’s a nice long break. My plan is to read, relax, eat well and sleep well and - as many other teachers - just be quiet. The all-day-long talking is a litle bit exhausting.

 
The day turned out to be a very warm one and after doing some random housekeeping, I set up a nice temporary “office” in the garden against the trunk of a Ginkgo biloba tree. As I drank my cup of Yorkshire Gold Tea (I had to take out a fallen leaf out of it now and then), unintentionally disturbed some ladybirds and marked biology tests of my year 6 students, I think I must have been the happiest and most satisfied teacher in the country.

 
I even felt warm enough to take my shoes off for a while and walk around barefoot. I came home energised and fresh like a happy hippie :)
