The greves (strikes) are showing no sign of stopping any time soon.
Have had fun and games with water AND electricity bills tonight (turns out EDF weren't quite as efficient as they seemed...)
Had an awful CE2 class today...has always been the worst and it didn't help that the teacher decided to have a meeting with one of the teachers at the back of the classroom today so there was their talking before anything else! But seriously they just went nuts.
The rest of my lessons this week have gone really well. CMs are doing so well with their evaluations, and a few of the stars in my youngest classes have cracked 5 questions and answers, including "What is your nationality?" "I am French" etc...pretty good for a 6 year old actually.
I don't have to go back to school until Thursday because I'd rearranged Friday and Monday's lessons, Tuesday the teachers are striking and Wednesday is day off. :-)
I went swimming yesterday, was super cheap and felt sooooo good.
AND, I'M GOING HOME! In 24 hours time I shall be at home with my family, on the sofa, wathing neighbours and in 36 hours time I'll be with my Joe! Tomorrow evening we're going to my favourite restaurant in Exeter, Harry's, and then I shall probably watch Children in Need on the TV which is always jolly. Saturday and Sunday I'll get to spend time with Joe. Saturday night is Alex's birthday which should be really fun. And I shall be expecting a nice roast dinner at sometime too. As much as I'm loving it here, I do miss people, and now I'm going so soon I'm very excited about just being there. Just got out my purse from the back of the wardrobe with my English money in, felt really weird. Can't believe how quickly I've got used to things...am sure I'll be saying "Bonjour" to people when I walk into shops.
So yeah had better get packing...wooooooo!
A bientot my lovelies
P.S. Properly cold and frosty here today
