Hola. Hope you are well.
Sharp eyed readers may have noticed that this blog has been published on a Sunday. In this blogs history, I’ve mainly blogged on a Monday (as is my intention), occasionally I’ve had to blog on a Tuesday and very rarely I’ve had to put it back to a Wednesday but in all my time doing this blog, I’ve never blogged early and wrote it on a Sunday, until today. Not one to overstate things, but THIS IS HISTORY!!!. Technically, I could have written the blog up, saved it as a draft and then published it tomorrow, but due to the fact I’m going away early tomorrow morning and because our internet connection is temperamental, I thought I would avoid stress on this occasion.
In addition to blogging on a Sunday, I also reached another milestone on Friday, when I completed a full academic year as a TA (teaching assistant) in the one school. The last day of school, was somewhat weird in that everyone was happy, the children were happy, the staff were happy, people were smiling, it was nice to be part of it. I’m sure the reverse will be true on the first day back in Sept.
Talking of Sept I should be back at the same school, which is good news. I’ve also managed to secure some work during August, again working with children. Part of my role involves working on my weekends in Sept. So between the two jobs I will be working 7 days a week during Sept. I’m not sure how this has happened. I’ve always attempted to have an easy life and now I’m working 7 day weeks. It just goes to show having an easy life, isn’t as easy as it first appears. And just for good measure Prong 2 has booked the 3 Prong Attack (my double act) in for a gig in Sept.
I can’t really complain, I might try from time to time, and like I said at the top of this blog, I am going on a mini holiday tomorrow. ‘Her With One Permanent Job’ and I also went away this time last year to Valencia, the home of Paella. On our last day there, we went to a market, where ‘HWOPJ’ wanted to buy a paella dish, I wasn’t so sure of the merits of adding to our luggage with something we could buy in London. Anyway, after the conversation went back and forth, we ended up bringing the dish back with us. Can you guess how many times we have used this paella dish in the subsequent year?? Answers on a postcard to Julian and ‘HWOPJ’ have yet to use the Paella dish, comp!
And Finally… we watched ‘The Graduate’ last night, for the first time, so with this in mind, feel free to let me know if you’ve ever had intimate relations with your partner’s parents.
Til next week (and a day), stay safe!
