procastination

Last day of the school holidays and all and I don't think I really remember them going so fast before.....maybe I didn't have as much correction to do before...

I was at dinner last night with a good friend of mine who is a physics/chemistry teacher at her school and both of us agree that this year has been the craziest year for year 12s. We both have felt slightly bombarded with year 12s this year. Same with a music teacher friend of mine from another school.....Might be the year for it.

I am also a little befuddled at the moment......Daylight savings has begun. A couple of years ago they decided to bring forward the starting date of daylight saving, which was after a successful delaying of the end of it. Essentially we have 6 months with and 6 months without. The only way I remember which way my clock goes is through a mantra I got from someone on the internet - thank you.....Spring forward. Fall back. You should have heard me last night with muttering as I changed all the clocks in the house. Perhaps it's best that you didn't.


I do like this particular time of year - each day holds so much promise as you feel like you are getting more into the day. But then I love all times of the year. Winter, when you can snuggle up and watch the tv without feeling like you should be out. Summer - spending long evenings enjoying the warm weather. Autumn with the falling leaves......I love all seasons. I just hate extremely hot days.

I suppose I should finish the corrections.

I think the holidays get faster every year. I love the spring break, yet it just flies by........
