Let's be honest: Janathon was a disappointment. Only managed to run for 22 days, barely reached the 100 mile mark and found the second half of the month very tough. Cue an endless list of excuses: cold, snow, ice, busy at work, snow, cold, ice, dark nights, busy at work and it was very cold.
Following on from the monthly projects in 2012 and Janathon I feel like a bit of a rest is needed in February.
Work has been very busy and I've been working hard to catch-up with marking in an attempt to have a pretty quiet and relaxing half-term. The hard work has paid off and I've somehow managed to do everything apart from a class set of Y10 controlled assessments that need doing. A week to recharge the batteries this week because the next term is probably going to be very busy: exam preparation, after school sessions and other general rubbish.
So the start of half-term began with beer, some vodka martini in a James Bond style, some blue stuff…
….followed by some green stuff….
In other news….I have managed to bag some tickets for a few gigs in the coming months:
- Beans on Toast in Leicester – 10th March
- Frank Hamilton in London – 3rd May
- Billy Bragg in Stratford – 2nd June
