I made a startling discovery today. I have mastered the skill of time travel!
This morning saw me jump out of bed before 8 o'clock, which I haven't seen in quite a while! I bounded into the school yard for the first time in two weeks. The first week was busy, busy with Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day. Then when all those festivities were out of the way I still had another week to relax and recharge the batteries.
Gosh, it seems like a month since I was here.
Into the breech and faced the crowd.
When little break came an hour and a half later I dragged myself to the staffroom for a much needed cup of tea.
God, it seems like I was never away.
How quickly the euphoria dispells!
