Where is the time going?
Today has flown by and I've had virtually no online time to catch up with LJ and the other sites I read. I have skimmed my friendslist, but sadly I have no time to comment on posts. Ditto no time to reply to comments on my recent posts, but I will catch up towards the end of the week, I promise.

I was teaching today and then after that there was a staff meeting and then I drove straight to the supermarket to buy food. I was really hungry when I got there (it was a "strict" day on my diet), but I was (mostly) good and the only "naughty" foods I bought were bars of dark chocolate, which we eat very slowly, one square a day. And we had almost run out. :)

I've just been doing more lesson prep and so I'm more or less organised for tomorrow, which is my longest day of teaching, but then it's downhill to the end of the week. I can only cope with four days teaching nowadays, so Friday is the start of my long weekend. And then I take a deep breath and start all over again preparing for the next week...

Current Mood: busy busy

Talk about time flying by! It seemed to whip past today. Not done half the things i was going to.

I'm still struggling to get the balance right. I don't have the energy and stamina I had when I was younger, but I don't want to become a couch potato during my free time. I need to set myself targets, but I need to keep them reasonable.

Teaching 4 days a week really takes it out of me know I'm older. I'm still struggling to get the balance right. I don't have the energy and stamina I had when I was younger, but I don't want to become a couch potato during my free time. I need to set myself targets, but I need to keep them reasonable.

Helen, I'm too full of this horrid/boring head cold (& feeling sorry for myself) to notice! Needs must & no one could ever accuse you of not being a good LJ friend.

Hope you get some downtime very soon. :)

I had a very lazy day yesterday, just walked Brith and had a cup of tea with his owners and helped them finish the crossword. Then in the afternoon, I listened to the radio and began a new crochet project. I feel much refreshed this morning!

I hope you manage to fight off that horrible cold. Colds always seem to make one more miserable than the severity of the illness really justifies.
