Starting the week

It’s sunny here and I’m ready for the day.  Yesterday Steve and I went to the park.  When we walked outside, immediately I felt that familiar heat and I was so excited to be outside.  We went down to the park, had some ice cream, fed the ducks, and then sat on the green and listened to a live music at the bandstand.  What a nice day and a great way to end the weekend.

I got myself up early today but there was no call for a teaching job (yet).  I’ve been watching BBC Breakfast since 7AM and I watched a piece about how the teachers are going on strike this week. The debate was that while teachers are going on strike, the parents should just come in and help.  The teachers argue that everyone who deals with children needs a Criminal Background Check (CRB) and this wouldn’t be fair to just let anyone, albeit concerned parents, to come in and take over for a couple of days.

I figure that’s why the education agency asked what my schedule was for this week.  I wonder if I’ll be stepping in while the teachers are out.  No matter.  I’m excited to go back to work.  It’s fun to be home and do my own thing but doing something else with my time in the name of productivity is nice too.

With that said, Steve is up and ready for breakfast so I’ll be walking in with him this morning.  Since my ankle isn’t ready for jogging yet I’ll head to the gym for the stationary bike.  A nice trip to the library will be in order too.  I don’t visit there nearly as much as I use to.  I’ve been reading Twilight so I’ve not needed to exchange books just yet – that one is fairly big.
