One-Liner Wednesday – Habits

One Liner Wednesday #1LinerWeds

“It snowed, I walked, and slipped – Inevitable, isn’t it?”

Ritu 2021

Don’t worry, Peeps. I am fine! Had to walk into school for a couple of days, due to ice and unsafe roads. Yesterday, I walked along, happy as Larry, and stepped on an old plasaatic advertising board that had fallen on the ground, and got covered in snow, so it wasn’t visible.

I felt the ground slip from beneath me. (Well, actually, it was the board, but you know what I mean!) Couldn’t do anything to stop it, and landed flat on my newly padded arse! Thank goodness for that extra Lockdown Layer that I have cultivated, while we have been too busy eating too much! A padded bum definitely cushioned my slip!

One Liner Wednesday #1LinerWeds – Give Thanks

“A simple ‘thank you’ can mean the world.”

Ritu 2021

Again, one line, above☝️, with a little explanation.

Today, I was working from home, and spent the morning phoning most of my pupils families to check in with them, and make sure they were okay, accessing the learning easily, and generally, checking their wellbeing.

The amount of parents who said thank you, and even one who wants to bring something in to show her appreciation, meant the world to me.

I don’t need gifts, and I said that to the parent in question, but those thank yous meant everything. It is so toug, right now, as a teacher. We want to do the best for our families, and our students, but remote learning will never be the best way, regardless of how you deliver lessons.

So, instead of hearing gripes, every call was filled with positivity.

I can sleep with ease, tonight. ❀

One Line Wednesday – #1LinerWeds – Vaccination

“If it’s offered, take the vaccination, please.”

Ritu, 2021

A few extra lines to support this one.

It appears that so many in the BAME community, a community of people disproportionately affected by COVID-19, are not taaking up the offer of the vaccinations that are being given, right now.

Why, I don’t know.

Thing is, we will never get ourselves out of this hole if we don’t all do all that is humanely possible, to help the situation.

Please, get vaccinated, and if you have an elderly member of your family, ensure they take up the offer.

I haven’t seen my family in months, and until we get things under control, I have no idea when the next time is, that I will feen the embrace of my parents.

I know many of you are in similar boats.

Pops and I are working with a friend of mine who works in the NHS to help create videos in many languages, with the simple message, to send out to the BAME community, in order to reach those that may not understand, or be fearful of the injection.

Let’s work together to do this.
