Really weird week, kinda feel a bit in limbo or something. Am, tonight, very tired after 3 hours sleep yesterday (we'll come to that), and kinda sad as the goodbyes have begun, it really seems way to soon for our little group to be broken up and really not liking having to say ciao to the Americans who I may not see again for a loooooong time. Work has been tough, the kids are suuuuuper chatty and stuff, they need a break too I guess...in fact on Monday I had the worst lesson I've ever had, my CE2 class were just awful. In fact I don't even wanna really go into it now because there has also been some really happytimes going down and the weather, at last, seems to be looking up.
So last night we had a little Leaving Party for Rachel, Lynn and Katie who are leaving and Hari, Eddie and Patti who are hanging around for a bit but have finished their contracts now. We headed first to Cafe de la Place for an apero, and JP, our responsable, came along which was really cool. Then 17 of us headed to a Chinese Restaurant and had an AMAZING meal. SOOOO yummy and the staff were really good. At 11.30ish the hardcore in the group moved on to the Irish Bar (nightclub closed on Tuesdays...of course) and ordered a few "giraffes", then later headed to Eddie's for a few rum and cokes and morris dancing (Molly went in a bin and a skip on the way!) and before we knew it it was 4am! Was very fun, tres good times...amusing.
However, had to be up again at 7.45 this morning, so yeah not an awful lot of sleep.
This morn me, Rachel, Lou and Stu did some more recording for JP... "I've got guinea pigs and a fish" etc and a funny song. My singing voice hadn't been treated very well yesterday night I guess and it was scary having to a sing a song we'd just learnt in front of people and the first time I tried JP said I sounded "like I was dying" when I got the "Miaow, miaow, miaow" bit, but nailed it the third time.
Then this afternoon I went back to Montpon with Rachel and Molly and Catherine. Very probably my last visit to the funny little place :-( We had a lovely afternoon. Took Rachel's table outside and had BBQ food which was loooovely. Enjoyed the sun and had some good chats. Later we went down by the lakes and had a really lovely peaceful couple of hours chilling out, gouting and playing frisbee. Delightful.
Here is a funny story:
