I just liked this picture as I had no other pictures for the post 🙂
I keep seeing posts on a day in the life, and I love reading them-I think I am quite nosey about what other people get up to! So I decided to do my own- for yesterday (Wednesday).
6.50am- Alarm goes off (Radio 4)- visit bathroom, get dressed, blink in the bright lights.
7am- Empty dishwasher while porridge cooks in microwave. Put lunch in lunchbox with ice pack, fill up water bottle for work.
7.10am- sit down to read blogs/ email/ facebook while eating porridge and drinking water. Publish my WIAW post and link up. Reply to the cupcake decorating email- I have booked on to a Christmas cupcake class!
7.30- realise that time flies when I am on the internet- quickly clean teeth and finish getting ready. Brush hair.
7.40-Rush out the door, get bins from around the corner, get car out of garage (grr I used to have our parking space but since Andy bought a bigger car his now can’t fit in the garage!). Listen to more radio 4- tune out and only realise it is the weather forecast when it says about the weather for Wales- ahhh I missed it for the south east!
8am-Arrive at work. Set up classroom for the day (I won’t list all the things I do as it will get very long haha!).
8.55am- let children in- get on with teaching!
10.30am- break time (not my duty day so I get a break)- make a cup of dragonfly rooibos chai tea, and have a cocoa mint nakd bar.
10.45am- break ends- more teaching.
12.15- lunch time- do some marking.
12.30- lunch time meeting- eat my hummus and carrot pitta and pear while in said meeting.
1.00- meeting ends- set up for afternoon lessons
1.15- children back- afternoon lessons
3.15- children leave- tidy a few bits away and get out a few things for tomorrow. Put marking aside for tomorrow morning.
3.30- after school meeting- data analysis makes my eyes go funny. How can people spend all day staring at a computer screen? Makes my eyes hurt!
4.50pm- Leave work and drive home- on the drive home think “Now it is all dark, maybe I should skip the run. We could have a walk instead. Who I am kidding- we will not want to go out on a walk in the dark and cold. Plus we have to wait in for the shopping. So just miss the run? But then I would have to run on Friday instead and I much prefer coming home straight away on a Friday. OK, maybe just a short run then.”
5.15pm- arrive home, quickly change into running clothes.
5.25pm- go out on a short run. Wow it is cold out there! Feel pleased because I did over 3 miles when I really didn’t feel like it much at first.
6.05pm-Arrive home, put dinner in the oven to heat up, jump in shower (while Andy unpacks shopping which arrived an hour early!)
6.15pm- out of shower (I didn’t wash my hair which saves time of drying it later on too- bonus).
6.30pm- Sit down to dinner- yummy vegan lentil tofu moussaka and roasted carrots, butternut and sweet potato left over from my lunches. This was so tasty and I wanted to take a photo but the batteries in the camera died. Ah well, you can picture it (or click on the recipe links to see them!).
7pm- Make some chocolate cherry brownies- these are for the final prize as Bronagh lives close by so she is going to collect her prizes. No photos though as the camera batteries are still charging!
7.30pm- Check emails, blogs etc.
8.30pm- realise the time and turn off the computer! Sit down to watch some TV with Andy.
9pm- Have a cup of mint tea and my last date almond bar.
10pm- Make my porridge for the next morning, get my lunch ready, clean up in the kitchen, put on dishwasher, get ready for bed.
10.30pm- Read for a bit in bed (and feel pleased that I got to bed pretty early!).
11.20pm- realise I have read for far too long and now will not get my 8 hours! Ah well, will try again tomorrow! 🙂
Now your turn- tell me something interesting about your day.
