There is only one way to handle going back to work after more than 2 days off. And that is to prepare. So 85% of my marking was done, all seating plans, practicals planned for ks3 etc. Work for the supply teacher, etc. Not time wasted my friends. I felt confident going in this morning.
In terms of personal: I made enough cauliflower chickpea curry last night to cover today and tomorrow's lunch, prepped break time snacks of tuna mayo and Ryvita and an apple, skimmed milk for the coffee.
I get up at 5 am for ablutions, tea and then wii yoga or fitness blender.
Went for a walk after supper to get my steps up to 15,000.
Pleased. Onwards and upwards! Roll on this next term!
