Undeniably the week’s highlight was when England beat France (untrustworthy Gauls) in France in the World Cup Semi-finals. And the England soccer team beat Estonia 3:0.
It was a good week for me at school; a postal strike meant no post, so it was an unbelievable reduction in reading matter, even the electronic mail went quiet (must be some link there?). During the week we had interviews for the new Head, the Governors appointed a guy that had been on Teachers TV (he takes over in January, and good luck to him). On Friday I cleared THREE carrier bags of dog muck from the school playing field, he can look forward to that now! The Governors in their generosity decided that as I had now sorted out all the problems left by the previous incumbent in the post, I would stay on the Head teacher’s salary until I retire (Wow! there is a tooth fairy after all).
Sarah attended a swimming Gala in Peterborough over the weekend and had a sleepover with a friend on Friday night. She made tomato soup at school this week and got an A+ for it. I tried some of it the other day and it was certainly A++++!
Jamie has a NEW girlfriend, she seems a little too sophisticated for him and quite mature, she is certainly good-looking, so probably the relationship won’t last. He was in London during the week at a Fashion show (he was working there with his boss). They stayed at a Thistle Hotel next to the City of London Airport. Jamie doesn’t drink alcohol, but they had an entertainment budget of £3000, I believe they somehow worked their way through most of it! He recently bought a mini-motorbike, and most days has been whizzing around the patio on it with his girlfriend watching on (I don’t think she is impressed).
Charlotte is fine though oddly she has taken to covering herself in olive oil whenever the phone rings (I don’t know why). Sue has been busy with schoolwork and helping Sarah with her recipes. She made a delicious shepherd’s pie on Wednesday.
