Today was the day of the last A level maths paper my guys sat. I spent the morning up in my classroom, as various students came and went: BTEC guys were finishing their assignments [ohhhhh so SLOWLY], and a couple of A level students were prepping for the afternoon. So mostly, I just needed to be there, and be ready to help out if needed, or cast a jaded eye over the latest dreadful mess of non-mathematical BTEC drivel.
Well, it’s boring.
So I took in the narsty buttonholed collar piece, and all relevant bits and bobs. I threaded needles, waxed thread, unpicked diabolical buttonholes, rejected BTEC assignment after assignment…and did some calculus. Yum.
Then I handsewed a couple of buttonholes. Not too bad. Could be better, if they’d been done under my magnifying light thingy, but as these ones will be under the collar, and invisble to all, they’ll pass muster. Pics in due course. Unless I change my mind!
I might as well plough on and do the ones on the front… this is probably going to be something I’ll regret.
Anyhew, can’t do it tonight, marking deadlines and all that, so I’ll most likely take it in tomorrow and sew while I wait for the rest of the BTEC stuff…productive at any rate!
Oh yes, the exam went well apparently, and I got a nice bottle of wine and a lovely thankyou card. Sometimes teaching is the dog’s bollocks!
