One day, surely, I shall meet my pupils going for cycle rides through the nature reserve with their parents, and they will see me perched up in branches and say "errrr, why is miss sitting in a tree?" and their parents will immediately complain to the PTA. It will be GREAT FUN and/or I will lose my job.
Can one lose one's job for climbing trees? Who. Knows. Maybe I will have to invest in a balaclava for stealth tree-climbing activities.
I have also been helping my dad to build walls. I have never built walls before so this has been exciting. That said, he did get me to do all the longwinded fiddly bits. He's doing up an old barn, and the old outer walls are all wonky, slanted, wiggling brick, so to make the internal plasterboard walls fit without a gap you have to cut them into wonky, slanted, wiggling shapes.
I start my PGCE in, oh, 7 days. SCARY. I have been sent a long list of tasks to complete on my first placement (which we do before we've even enrolled) and I'm wondering if I'm going to manage to cram everything in. I'M SURE IT WILL BE FINE.
How are you guys?
