Out to dinner...


I got my department to go out to dinner tonight. A first, apparently. We had a lovely meal in Lyall Bay, at a place called Elements. Nice. Good to get five really REALLY different people talking, both about work and about other things.

And I'm so tired, I'm going to bed even earlier. Look, it's only quarter to eleven. Busy, busy, difficult and challenging day, including two nails in two car tyres at once. But oh, we played the trading game last period and it was freakishly successful!!! I'll tell you about it at the weekend. The girls wouldn't stop until they were halted by the bell at the end of the day!

And I now have to become an expert on church architecture for my Year 12s. So I might need all your photos!!! Lucky I went to all those churches in Germany. I have many stained glass windows in my file. But now I need to know the differences between churches in different eras, art, architecture and music. The textbook is turgid and dull, so I suspect I'll be surfing the net over the weekend!

That's always nice, to get people away from work and having a good time. Good for morale and communication.

I hate tire problems! Such an annoyance.

Glad to hear your trading game went well though!

-I hate tire problems! Such an annoyance.
I must need coffee! I don't think I'm awake enough, I sat there thinking 'what the hell is tire?'!!! Duh! Tyre!!! Heh.

And yeah, I think the RE dept will be stronger now that we have had a dinner and a kind of - well, bonding!!! It was good to see how the deputy head (who teaches one class in my dept) is really just another teacher when it comes to problems in the classroom. Kind of levelling. And it meant we can feel more for her, instead of seeing her as just one of the admin team.

Haha, I thought about that when I typed it, but when I typed it tyre it just felt so unnatural! I had to change it!
