    Teachers work very hard @helensaramay, and it’s not always the kids that are the problem, it’s the endless govt. inspired form filling on top of the marking and the planning that means a lot of them work long hours at repetitive tasks that take them away from the stuff they and the kids really need.
    At the beginning of the school year older daughter looks healthy, happy, no older than her years. At the end of it she has dark circles under her eyes, looks at least ten years older and far less healthy. And she loves the subject she teaches, the kids are mostly great, she enjoys making time in class as cheerful and fun as she can. As soon as they’ve paid off the mortgage she’ll be going part time so that she can live while she’s alive.

    Yay! Day off :) Supply teaching is good in that you don’t have to do any marking, planning etc (although I do that for my Friday job share) - the volume of stuff my colleagues have to deal with is eye watering. I couldn’t do it. But supply teachers get treated like poo by not just the kids but some of the teachers too. Sat in the staff room at lunch yesterday and was totally ignored by everyone. I’ve built a few good relationships with my Friday kids and colleagues though - it’s surprising how much difference just having a lanyard that says “staff” instead of “visitor” makes to their attitudes.

    Yes, I remember that too. The first week was amnesty week - stress tempers and illness. Not good. And I taught 16+

    Morning all,

    @Mel dCP the cat is getting a bit better each day, and as he's started to eat a bit Vet has said to reduce his tube feed, so still looking positive.

    I was going to make some comment about yesterdays discussions..........:rolleyes::hilarious::hilarious:!

    Lovely. Glad I’m not a cat, I like washing in a shower. Purple walls, stripey broomstick - beyond Terry Pratchett

    That's a huge difference! I haven't a Libre and think I might lose patience with one. Do you find it valuable?

    Aye. You can always rely on him to be licking his bum for a photo. Fidel just likes to chill in an elegant manner.

    I dunno what it is at the moment. Most of us seem to have blood mixed with sugar for some reason. The insulin is just something we inject for fun for all the good it does.

    Mine’s on the low side today but libre built a hill again last night. Raising nighttime basal again tonight and it’ll be the first time the night one’s higher than the day one. Is there a dastardly plan being operated somewhere? By a man with gold jewellery and a big fluffy white cat?

    Totally. Sooner or later the demand for all our money will arrive, and once we pay up our insulin will all be restored!

    We need a plan!

    I’m a bit all over the place today too. Overcorrected for the foot on the floor, then overcorrected for the resulting low, then overcorrected for the inevitable high. Should have just done what Loop suggested instead of trying to be clever... :rolleyes:
