I’ve been full on sick since last week, a raging stomach infection and a bitch of a cough. I’m hoping at some point the medicine will kick in and I will start to feel better ‘cos I couldn’t do another week like this. I made it through but I would have happily let someone kill me just to put an end to it.
I hate being sick. I don’t cope well. Plus it makes me miss my mum even more. No matter how old you are, when you’re sick you want your mum, ‘cos mum’s just know how to make it better.
It was interesting to see how the kids cope when their teacher is ill. Normally in my classes I’m really ‘on it’, filled with energy and giggles etc and well this week all my energy just went on standing up properly. And bless, the kids they were so sweet about it. Even more well behaved than they normally are. I’m always grateful for teaching in a school like ours but this week even more so.
Because I’ve been sick and low on energy I didn’t do anything this weekend apart from vegetate and watch tons of bubblegum telly. Finally managed to watch Sharknado, which all my friends in the US had been raving about a while back. If you haven’t already seen it, you must watch it. You must! It is quite possibly one of the worst pieces of television you will ever see. The production value is so bad and the acting so awful that it is hard to choose a favourite bit. I totally loved it and I think fair play for whoever came up with this genius idea. I cannot wait for the sequel: Sharknado, Sharks on a Plane.
