Chai And A Chat #54 #ChaiAndAChat

Happy Monday to you all! I hope your week treated you well. Here’s my update!

  • If we were sipping chai together I’d start by telling you I’m still tired. As Spidey helped me to tell you all, the exhaustion is pretty bad still, but I have made a doctor’s appointment. Here’s hoping he can help me work out why… Saturday saw me go up fir a little nap and surface three hours later!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d let you know that school is going fine, for me, but there are changes afoot in school with staff ins and outs… always a bit of an upheaval for everyone. My extra special Beaut has been given one to one support so will be coming in for longer as of next week. Here’s hoping it helps!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d say that on Thursday, the local paper had a supplement in it, entitled First Classes. Every year the local paper takes a photo of the Reception classes in all the surrounding schools, and it goes in the paper. Our pic was there. My with my first proper class! It was lovely to see! I’d post it, but I’m not sure of protocol, so better safe than sorry!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d share this beautiful sunrise that I saw one morning. The colours were just magnificent!

  • If we were sipping chai together I’d let you know that I have been trying to build my collection of fiction craft books, thanks to recomendations from several great writerly friends of mine. As you know, if you read the post on my Author Blog, the publisher said no. Not a rude no, but more of a great idea, but it’s not for us kind of no. So I’m back to deciding what to do. First off, another round of finishing the editing tweaks as recommended by my beta readers, then the big decision… to Trad or Indie?
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d mention that I have been rediscovering older poems of mine, and posting them on Facebook and Instagram. It’s great to read old words you have strung together!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d say that despite the tiredness, it was important to celebrate the birthday of one of my special Tootie Frootie ladies. We had a quiet night out, four of us, chilling, chatting and chomping!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d tell you that I don’t want to wish time away, but I can’t wait for the weekend! It means we have finished for this first term, and I get a week off. Much needed. First things first will be to try and get an earlier doctor’s appointment. and REST!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d mention that it is Harvest Festival today at school. We have been practicing a short song with the children, and this will be the first time they have gone to a whole school assembly. Actually the first time they have been to ANY assembly! So fingers crossed, they actually sing!

Right, that’s me done Peeps! Let me how your week has been.

    Your newspaper photo and Tooti Frooties night out must have been highlights of the week. Super poem, keep up the rest, and fingers crossed the doctor can help with your exhaustion. ❤️

    My son’s also have half term coming up, Ritu. Unfortunately, I will be working as I am very busy at this time of year. I doesn’t sound like a bad week.

    I hope you get things sorted out regarding the exhaustion. That sounds so un-Ritu.

    Want to have a week off too. 😉 But you really have it well deserved. Wish you good luck for the assembly. With us in Germany, they say, “Keep a sack full of fleas!” LoL Best wishes, Michael

    hope you find out the reason for the tiredness, that is a bit concerning. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Good luck with the assembly, I am certain it will bring many smiles. Thank you for your words, as always you are an encouragement. Cathi
