So this week was BAD
but I've got some good excuses.
Do you like that, not even one excuse, but some excuses.
We went out to eat at TGI Fridays (which btw just opened here) and it was delicious (seriously, I'm shocked. The TGI's in the states is meh). So needless to say one workout not done and extra yummy food eaten.
|Birthday present - he'll definitely help me make healthy meals|
Wednesday was a real game changer.
Lunchtime rolls around and all of a sudden all the staff are in the staffroom. My headteacher walks in to tell us that Ofsted, the school inspectors, had just rung to say they were coming Thursday and Friday. Cue massive panic. Instead of my korfball practise, I was hunkering down at school with the rest of the teachers making sure all our assessment tracking was up to date, plans were written and included everything they would be looking for, and materials were already prepared.
School inspections are a big deal. A bad inspection potentially means your school could get shut down.
Thursday came and the inspectors arrived. It was tense for everyone wondering if and when they would come by to watch their lesson. We actually get graded on our lessons and this can influence their reports. I was blessed to have not only the lead inspector, but my headteacher arrive mid-way through my maths lesson. That was a really tense half hour and I actually started sweating at one point.
If that wasn't scary enough, another inspector arrived for my afternoon lesson! (Some people didn't get viewed once on Thursday).
I'm happy to say I got an outstanding (the highest mark) for that maths lesson and a good for my afternoon lesson. Phew!
I finally managed to pick up my present from my mom...
I'm happy to say that yesterday was the first day I got a chance to wear it.
My word for this next week is SUSTAIN and this pic from yesterday is what I'm aiming for.
Good luck to everyone this next week.
