We’ve had to come up with a name for a new committee. One of our English teachers really rose to the challenge and gave us a heap – these are some of my favourites (school name changed):
"Kirkus’s educational English performance improvement team supporting improvements, moderating performance, & lifting education standards through understanding pedagogical improvements& developments" – KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID
"Literacy intervention and redevelopment squad" – LIARS
"Developing educational advice & development of Writing, oration & reading at Kirkus" – DEAD WORK
Busy today. Started at about 4am with an early wakeup (precipitated by "still on work time sleeping schedule* husband wandering the house in the wee hours). Got Master Seven ready for school, got Miss Four organised for a big day, and played with the baby. Took Bub and M4 to National Simultaneous Storytime at our local library (we usually go on Thursdays, but thought it might be nice to do it on the proper day), which was fun. The home to wait for M4’s best friend and her mum to go up to watch the Dora the Explorer "live" show. Kids loved it. I almost fell asleep, despite the incredible noise! But they enjoyed it, which is why we did it :) Then it was home, only to turn around an hour or so later when babysitter arrived, to go out to Gold Class for Robin Hood, which I quite enjoyed, although I felt that, despite the already long length, that there were some important bits missing. In fact, I think it would have made an EXCELLENT (if expensive) television series – one season, with the same basic story, but with a lot more secondary character development (and some more women would have been nice) and relationship development. That’s just me though.
So that was my day. And despite being really really tired, I’m still up, because I’m watching the Lost season finale. Even though I’ve never seen an episode before. And even though I missed the first hour of this one. The things we do!
got this as part of an email from m’mother:
