Chai And A Chat #125 #ChaiAndAChat #CoronaDiaries Week 49

You know, I sit and type the post title, and wonder when the Corona diaries will end, and it will simply be an update of the week? But right now, it is still very much that time, and so we sit back, drink in hand, and think of we were up to last week.

You siting comfortably?

  • If we were having chai I’d tell you school was bit of a mad rush, this week, as we coped with the remote learning, while also teaching in school, and preparing for the full reopening of schools today. It was hectic. I am almost nervous at the thought of being in school with all the kids again… will I be able to do my job properly? Have I forgotten what to do? But equally, I am so excited to see them all, too. We went on a little walk today, and I bumped into three sets of parents, with their children, my pupils, and they were so happy at the thought of being back again, it made my heart soar! And, in order to prepare for my two to go back, I had to take them into school, too, to have Lateral Flow Device tests done, so they were clear to start back on the Monday. All done, but now they also konw how horrible it is to have those tests! Poor kids!
  • If we were having chai I’d have to mention the highlight of the week which was World Book Day. You know me, I love a bit of dressing up, and usually we as a staff, have a theme, but this year it was different. We still celebrated it, but with a twist. I’ll embarrass myself further by showing you a short video of my craziness this year!
  • If we were having chai I’d say that we’ve had a couple more viewings, and things are moving along in the right direction, so fingers crossed!
  • If we were having chai I’d proudly say that, despite an awful headache on Tuesday, I smashed all my stepping goals this week, and either walked or exercised every day, apart from Headache-gate, and managed another 3lb loss, too! I’m nothing if not determined!
  • If we were having chai I’d leave you with a pic of the gorgeous Sonu Singh, who is going to miss having the kids at home every day, doting on him, as they go back to school. This is him being rather cheeky and trying to get me to feed him early, but sitting on both my laptop and kindle!

This week, we will be getting settled back into school, ensuring the children are happy and healthy, before the araduous task of assessing how they are faring academically. It’s also Mother’s Day, so that will be a lovely way to get them to talk, as well. Other than that, I can’t even think about anything else! But I am sure there will be plenty to tell you when I meet with you, then!

    I hope today at school went well. Our middle lad has to have one of those lateral flow tests every time he goes in to work she he knows what they are like.
    I am sure all will be good as you are such a great teacher!
    Love Sheila ! And Suno Singh!💜💜💜

    I think aside from the tests it will be back to the regular school days faster than you may think. The kids might be so uncomplicated and adjust quickly.

    I hope all goes well with the kids returning to school full-time, Sister. Hopefully the nuttiness of this all will die down soon. 💜🙏🏽

    I hope the first full week back goes well. I have to ask, when you say there were some kids remote and some in class, did you have both? I don’t know how you would be able to do that. Ritu the magician 🙂

    Espresso ready! 🙂
    You are honored that you feel sorry for the little ones because of the tests. There are teachers who are very harmful. 😉 Crazy video, Sis! What are the Marshmellows doing on your hat? Lol Bravo! Sonu now also knows what smartphones and laptops can be used for. He charges the two parts with induction. Lol
    Thank you for the weekly briefing, Sis! Stay well and save! Its going on! Michael

    I love your video, Ritu. Your Australian accent is quite impressive – but rather a soft, gentle one, compared to some flavours of Aussie speak. I lived in Australia for four and a half years (and my daughter is there now, studying at uni). I never cultivated an Aussie accept while I was there. But I’m well aware of the Aussie accent, and also I’m called Sheila! Bit unfortunate!
