As always the first few days of term are chaos and not just in my department.
I worked from 6:30 - 3:30 today, I worked through my lunch break, the machines running non-stop, I still have 30,000 documents to print and 500 booklets, about seven hours for each job.
I also went to Helen's to look after the children for an hour so she could go to the chiropractor. She has a painful neck and back, she didn't want to have to ask me, but not many people want to watch 4 children for a couple of hours.
We used to be given a free lunch on inset days but that has stopped, my team decided to club together and buy pizza for lunch today, as usual they forgot to include me. Fortunately I had taken in a really delicious salad.
I had iceberg lettuce, yellow pepper, cucumber, spring onion, hard boiled egg, chopped anchovy's, a spoonful of hummus and one of coleslaw, yummy.
