I spent this afternoon at Sports Day with my form group. I expected it to be 3 hours of baking in the sun. Actually, it turned into 1 hour baking in the sun, and the rest of the time dealing with what we “Professional Teachers” call “An Incident”. Which means Girl X attacked Girl Y in the bathrooms and left scratchmarks all over her neck.
Flesh wounds aside, I have one more day left, and I am very happy. Besides, it also looks like M and I will be off to Indietracks festival this weekend to be Members Of The Press. Lovely Helen and Lynnabeth at For Folk’s Sake are letting me write a review for them. Here’s the line up:
