Chai And A Chat #143 #ChaiAndAChat

So, we are finally at the penultimate week of term, and it’s going to be different, but that’s for next week! Last week? Well, read on!

Let’s give you a quick recap, along withour weekly drink! Ready?

  • If we were having chai I’d let you know that we had another interesting week at school. It was all a bit higgledy piggledy, because we had staff in and out, school work experience pupils in, and with Monday being a staff INSET day, that left us with just 4 days with the children. We also had the height, weight and vision xhecksfir them, that are usually done much earlier in the year!
  • If we were having chai I’d mention that we did manage to have our children’s first ever sports day, of sorts. it wasn’t the way things usually are, with the parents coming, and EYFS and KS 1 joining together, because of needing to avoid bubbles mixing, but the children had a whale of a time! We had balancing races, the egg and spooon race, the over under game, a sack race, as well as some running races at the end. And, I won the teacher race too! That is more of an achievement, to be honest! 😂
  • If we were having chai I’d tell you that data and reports are done, all proof read and printed out, ready to go out.
  • If we were having chai I’d let you know that I am trying so hard to make sure I read, little and often, as it isn’t easy right now, and I need that wind down time, but it’s little and not as often as I’d like!
  • If we were having chai I’d share that Lil Man had the last match of his Under 16s league and their team won. He was even more excited that he came out as the top wicket taker of the team for the year so far! I was extremely excited that I got to try a new Kitkat at the match!
  • If we were having chai I’d also remind you that I am still doing Sacha’s challenge over on Instagram. Head over if you haven’t seen!
  • If we were having chai I’d tell you that I am writing this before the BIG MATCH. As you are all mostly going to be aware, England are in the Euro 2020 finals, and the country is going mad. The first major tournament final that has been reached by the Mens team, since 1966! Still got my fingers crossed! UPDATE: So, it was a nail-biting game, with an early goal by England, which got equalised in the second half. Another 30 minutes of extra time gave no winning joy. So, we went to penalties. And in the end, Italy won at 3-2 penalties. Well played Lions. We’re proud of you. I dread to think how fans reacted, last night, though…
  • If we were having chai I’d end by updating you on tha cat of mine, Sonu Singh. He’s been doing his usual, and though there was no sneaky treat stealing, he has been begging for food a lot more! Oh, and he spent lots of time with me, up in my writing room, in Saturday, as I read, while he lounged on the armchair with me!

This week, it may feel a little slower, but that doesn’t mean I get an easy ride. There is still so much paperwork for me to do, along with keeping the kids (mine, as well as my class!) on track, so I will just keep trucking along, and hope the week passes smoothly!

    As I read this catching up, I realize you are now out of school and on a big break. Have a great summer, Ritu. Of course I rooted for England in the big match. We are glued to the Olympics over here.

    You seem to be busier and busier at work, Ritu. This is what happens when you get promoted and have more responsibility. You must be very proud of your son and his wonderful achievements.

    What you do with Sonu is almost torture. Lol Do you believe in rebirth? Then you have to be afraid. 😉 Otherwise everything seems fine. I am pleased! Yes, the paperwork has to be done, mostly in the free time. Have a nice week, and find time to rest in the new yard. xx Michael

    Once it comes to penalty shooting the two teams are equally good (or bad) to me. However, that team wins that makes the most goals… I can only imagine how disappointing it is when a team is just a sniff away from the victory and loses.
    Have a great Monday, sis!!

    Sounds like a really busy week. Well done on winning that teacher’s race, I bet your class were thrilled. Never enough time for all the reading here either, but as you say, little and often is good. I hope you have a good week and that it isn’t too manic!
