Well, they say all good things come to an end. Day zero has dawned. Good-byes have been said (or not, in certain cases outside my control!), the children have waved farewell to schooldays until September, mums have stocked up on paracetamol/tranquillizers for the duration and I have trekked across the Runcorn Bridge for the last time.
The surprise party Remember?
was a great success, thoroughly enjoyed by all and, I'm afraid, paid for by many this morning! In spite of not hitting the sack until 1.30a.m. I woke at 5.55a.m. ready to leap out of bed but remembered just in time that I am now a free agent.
The weather is beautiful, the sun is shining, I have no marking or preparation to do. Welcome to the first day of the rest of my life :)
Demob happy teacher? Ecstatic ex-teacher is more like it!
