…In so many ways.
My job is definitely at risk, but management in their infinite wisdom will not be breaking the news of their decision until we’re all on holiday. Lovely. So we get to fret for another week and a half, while being asked to plan and prepare for September…but have no idea if we’ll be still employed.
This does not make life very pleasant, and I’m not optimistic tbh. Older, experienced teachers are also pricey by comparison with the noobs. Of course, there aren’t exactly hundreds of jobs being advertised right now, with schools and colleges on the brink of closing for the summer.
So I rant and rave a lot. I don’t do calm and accepting, too much rests on my income. Like a roof over our heads.
Meanwhile. Exam marking plods steadily on, no stress there, and I cheered myself up by ordering some goodies last week which should arrive soon…oh yes, and my lovely new Singer buttonholer attachment arrived! Squee!
Remember I cut out 2 style arc tops WEEKS ago? Well I’m cracking on now. The red one should be done tomorrow night, and the purple one will follow shortly afterwards. The red is done bar side seams, sleeves and hem. Meh. Maybe two evenings at this rate.
The heat made me stop tonight- the sewing/dining room is very small and stuffy, even with the window open, so the addition of iron-generated heat and magnifying light-generated heat made me start to melt. Cold shower and bed I think, another ‘training’ day looms tomorrow .
Here’s a few shots I took before going to work this morning- the sunshine on the lilies and evening primroses was so lovely, and just look at those strong colour clashes. Yum!
