A New Job, A New Layout…

Two months ago I started a new job. It might surprise some of you to read that it is not at a school but in a pub near to where I live. It’s only part time but I have been working as many hours as I can to pay the bills and I have been loving it! It has been physically exhausting, mainly because of the heat behind the bar as the bar air con doesn’t really work that well, but its also because there are full washer trays of…

FlyLady Pages Added To Files Page

For those of you that have requested the file I created of the 11 commandments and the the 31 baby steps, I have finally found the file and have edited it so that it is suitable for anyone to print on whichever sized paper they have (the original one I created was set to A5 page size as I print straight to A5 paper). I hope it helps you get started/continue in the FlyLady way! Obviously as it is in Word, you can change the colours and font to suit…

Teacher’s Organiser Summer Pages Now Available

For those of you that Teach, you may have seen the Spring 2013 Organiser pages I created with the help of Ray ready for you to print and use.

I have based the main option on Essex (because I live there), but the Elsewhere option covers an earlier Easter along with an earlier term end. I also know some schools don’t finish until the end of…

Too Much of a Bad Thing

Tonight I have been laying awake in bed worrying. I have not done this for quite a while thankfully, and yet tonight I find myself treading an all too familiar path of worry about things I have little control over. I cannot even begin to explain why I am filled with all these thoughts and fears but they are there and as long as I am being kept busy they hibernate fairly well. They have reared their ugly, nagging head this time because I quit my long term supply position…

The Challenge Ahead

The email I had been waiting for finally arrived Thursday, it was confirming that I would be teaching at the school I talked about in my last post. This is quite a big event for me as I have quite a lot of responsibility combined with some challenging students. Not only do I have to get them through a Functional Skills in ICT qualification, but also their English, Maths and Science qualifications plus any additional awards such as ASDAN Bronze Award or their Food Hygiene certificate. I have to work…

A Week Filled With Challenges

This week has been a rollercoaster of events and emotions. The week started with a trip to Ilford to meet with yet another Teaching Agency followed by a similar trip to Brentwood straight after to meet with one there. I arrived in Brentwood with 2 hours to spare so I walked to Sainsbury’s with the aim of getting some food. Before I had even set foot inside the store I had a phone call from the guy I met with in Ilford, how did I fancy 4 days’ work this…
