Driven to Drink! Nursery Made Me Into A Lush! #Throwback Thursday

My first class was truly a baptism of fire… Here’s a recap from how I was feeling two years ago!



*Writing while under the influence… may be dangerous, but what the heck!

Now, I’m not a big drinker, I never have been… I may partake of a tipple or 3 when we are out with friends, but never with family, and generally not at home, because I have far too much to do, then I just collapse into bed!

But this is the second time this term, I have crowned my week on a Friday evening with a bottle glass of wine or 2.

Does teaching drive you to drink?

Well, I wouldn’t go so far as to say YESSSSSSS!!!!

But I am definitely in need of stress relief more than normal!  I am being good… not writing too much about school… it could get me in trouble, you know what I mean, so this one isn’t automatic on my Facebook page, where friends, family and acquaintances are so lovely as to like my page!

(You know what I’m sayin?!?!)

Well, this is glass number 2 talking, and I think number 3 might follow shortly.  Number 1 lasted a mere 5 minutes… I thought I was sipping slowly, then the bottom of the glass stared back at me as I tried to get another drop! (yup, just ordered my next one from my personal bartender for the evening)

Lush! See, I told you!  I haven’t even finished number 2 and Hubby Dearest asked if I’ve already had enough! Hell no!!!

Well, what can I say…. maybe a a haiku will help…

My first teaching class

A baptism of fire, in short

Little Sh*ts know nil!

Now let’s tanka-fie it!

Yet they fill nappies with speed

And bite and scratch with delight!

Oh what a week it’s been! And to top it off, we have Lil Man’s schools to apply for, and there is the open days to attend this weekend, football training and matches, Punjabi school for Lil Princess, and don’t forget the dreaded homework!!!!!!

Ok, I shall stop now, before I write something silly!!!!!!

Peace out Peeps…

*looks around… Where’s that refill??!

    Too funny! Yes, teaching can make one long for a drink. And, writing about school can be dangerous! (I have tons of stories that I don’t dare put out into the “net”)

    Wow, that haiku was quite disturbing ha ha!! I don’t envy you, I imagine you need the patience of a saint. I’d probably end up on a few bottles a night if it were me!

    I am not a drinker. However, recently, I had a rough day (and a similar experience with the bottom of the glass), came home, poured a glass, and within about 15 seconds, slugged it down. My wife looked at me with shock and a bit amusement (as she knew what was going to happen to me in a few minutes). I prepped and drank a second in a more modest 15-minute span, but the results were less than enjoyable. I think I’m a bit of a light weight… but, ehh.

    Hate to tell you Ritu, but this post DID go to your Facebook and Twitter, probably because you have Publicize activated…
    You need to delete them PDQ (Pretty Darn Quick) if you don’t want them there.
