Zigzag Street strikes again...

It is so hot here! I mean, really hot and humid. And the sun isn't even shining. It's amazing. We're not really used to it at all. It's like Australia. I've done a lot of laundry. And I have been working most of the day on schoolwork, in a patchy kind of way, swinging from one thing to another. I know a LOT more about philosophy now. And I have worked out my Social Justice scheme. I've planned my Year 9 beginning. I decided to text one of my teachers to ask her about what order she'd like to set up her year level topics so I could make a roster. I'm keen, huh. Still. I wanted to get things organised early. But in a particularly Richard Derrington fashion, I got a text back a few moments later, which surprised me: Jenny, you sent this to me. Jane. Jane is my Principal! OMG! I texted back in a shocked fashion, saying that she was listed in my phone under another teacher, but at least this proves I am working (it's still summer holiday time here)! She said she was impressed! We had a laugh back and forth, considering who the teacher was - she knew who I'd sent it to... *sigh* I think when that Year 11 girl died, I put their numbers into my phone so we could organise the funeral arrangements, and I must have gotten them mixed up! Yikes!

And in a moment of domestic bliss (it's Wellington Anniversary today so Steve is home) and perhaps reminiscent of Antipodean picnics in the summer at the bach, I have made a bacon and egg pie. I have not made one of these before. I am not sure how it will come out. I'll let you know...

So. Hot. Sticky. Not a breath of wind. Overcast skies. Even the rabbit is lying down. Phew. You northern hemipherers, please go lie in the snow for me *g*

Cold, wind and rain. Oh dear.

-It's nice that you're learning too, e.g. about philosophy - that's what keeps your teaching fresh and inspirational!
Yes, but I am so not a philosopher! Maybe when I've read the whole lot, I'll be inspired...

And I am so HOT! I'm going to lie on top of the bed. No covers tonight! I went outside to talk to the rabbit and the guinea pig and it was no cooler out there, and it's half past eleven at night.
