Chai And A Chat #60 #ChaiAndAChat

Happy Monday to you all! Can you believe it? we’ve been sharing a cuppa every Monday for 60 weeks now? That’s mad! Now, if you’re ready with yours, let’s go!

  • If we were sipping chai together I’d start by telling you the lurgy hit the household this week! Hubby Dearest and Lil Man were struck down by Man Flu, then Lil Princess did something to her neck, and was full of sniffles too. The bins have been overflowing with tissues… perfect! And me? Well, I think I have saved myself mostly from the lurgy, but the pains, well they are still around. Anopther Dr’s appointment has been booked but it’s not for another two weeks… And at school we haven’t been safe either. On Monday I had 21 students in, instead of 29, many off with a Norovirus style bug. Then we ended the week with one confirmed Chicken Pox case… let’s see what this week brings…! I’m due to have my flu jab on Friday. Hope I can last until then!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d tell you that we had our anniversary last Monday. Being a school/work night, we didn’t really do too much, and with Hubby’s Man Flu, we’ve kept our celebration on ice for now. But I was gifted beautiful flowers and a gorgeous figurine by my wonderful man, as well as a T-Shirt I was joking about… what do you think?
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d have to mention that despite my aches and pains, I had a date with Lil Princess and our friends, to go and watch the real Little Mix in concert on the Thursday night! It was a rush to get there, after school on Thursday, but we did it, and had a great meal together, before watching the band. The girls loved it, and I think is mums might just have enjoyed it a little more!

  • If we were sipping chai together I’d tell you that I was shattered by Friday. This out on a school night really is too much for me now! I got through the school day, and rushed home to get cleaning done, and then whizzed to the shops for the grocery, then once I got home, I was ready for bed. I had a fantastic sleep! And we did nothing this weekend, bar rest, eat, read and watch TV. A much needed set of downtime!
  • If we were sipping chai together I’d have to tell you about something really fun that we did at school this week. We have been learning about seasons and decided to make season bottles with the children. I have to say, I was pretty proud of the ones we made with the kids in our class… Check them out below! And nativity song practice is in full flow too. We have been singing our play songs each day, and the children have really impressed me with how well they have picked up the words! And I have mentioned this before, but they really do sound so angelic. I can’t wait for the performance!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d mention that the week may involve less children, due to sickness, but it also affects adults, and I already know one of our team is going to be off for one day, due to her own kids… Tis the season to be sicky, fa la la la la, la la la la!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d tell you that I am a little nervous as I am being observed on Thursday too. Being observed is never fun. I hate that we have to be judged on a 20-30 minute lesson, when I KNOW I am a good teacher… but hey, at least I know my observer well!
  • If we were sipping that chai together, and possibly reaching for cake or cookies I’d let you know that it will be my Finndian nephew #1’s fifth birthday too this week… where did that time go? And that means that I’ll be celebrating my five year Blogiversary too this week!

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

    Well, Little Mix, fabulous season bottles, sick adults, sick children! Anniversaries, blogging and Marriage and Findian boys all worked out by you! Good luck with the inspection Sis I will be rooting for you. Sorry it took me so long to get here but it’s been not so good here as I’ve been unwell. 💜💜💜

    Can you believe I’m getting to Chi and a Chat on a Monday? I am not sipping or drinking anything because it’s past my bedtime, late, and, well, and…
    Yesterday we spent the day with my “grandson” in a town about fifty miles from ours and ate seafood out. It was a lovely day. Today was a totally frustrating Monday–nothing I wanted to accomplish worked out. Phooey!
    The thing I do to keep from “catching something” from my stressed-out, immune-system-compromised students who are often parents of day care kids is take vitamin C and a zinc tablet to boost its efficiency. It works for me.
    I love the T-shirt. Your hubby has good taste in cats and women!
    I also loved the season bottles. I’ve made bags and boxes with my Sunday Schoolers, but intend to start saving bottles for future projects.Thanks for the idea.
    I’ve enjoyed our time together, but my eyes are closing…closing…zzzzzz

    I love the season bottles!! How did you do it? Is it water or oil? I do hope you’re better, Ritu. Getting a good night’s sleep and having a quiet weekend is awesome!
