Have had a superproductive day. Have actually, for once, got everything done which I planned to on waking up and by 20.30. This never happens! It's usually about now that I start writing the to-do list for the next day. I guess thats what you get for waking up in the MORNING on a Sunday rather than LUNCHTIME. (Getting up at "midi" 3 days a week and 6.45 the others was just not working...)
So yeah this morn I read my new little librio guide to French literary movement from the medieval ages to the 19th Century. Its a fantastic little book...like very very very concise but brilliant for putting everything in context, getting me back in the litterature mindset. Then I finished off my lesson planning: Sports this week. Gonna do it with all levels I think and varying degrees of difficulty etc etc but it meant the first, "vocab introducing" lesson was easy to plan. I wrote my blog entry about vocabulary in lessons and stuff...had been meaning to get all my ideas down somewhere together for a while. Then it was to the laverie, did some washing and started on my new grammar book while waiting. This afternoon I spent hours and hours looking at careers stuff. Mostly the different teacher training options, deciding which one to go for (EBITT GTP i think, he he he Employment Based Initial Teacher Training Graduate Teacher Programme, although its very competetive so will apply for PGCEs too) and where I want to do it (probably the Bristol/Bath area although tricky as want to try and keep my plans roughly in-line with Joe's). Also looked at jobs in a few other areas, namely BBC, Comenius/CILT and the Civil Service Faststream (Diplomatic service/European Fast Stream). Could all be cool if the right thing came up but we shall see!
And then decided it was treat-time so I pulled on my hoody and hat, grabbed my keys and 5euros and ran round the corner (in the wind and rain) to the err "Tunisian" (read Kebab shop) and got me some dinner! mmmm!
Ooo yeah other news is that Mum and Dad have booked another Dordogne break for the Spring and got a car booked too so we can do all the places I can't get to sans voiture, so that'll be awesome.
Monday morning will soon be here. 3 weeks till the hols. The countdown has kinda started now.
