Do any other teachers feel like they need to lie down in a darkened room at the end of the day at the moment? hmm

yes

.... while stuffing your face with chocolate and rocking back & forth.

Oh yes. This long autumn term is a killer.

Just now? hmm every damn day. I've resigned grin

I was THIS close to zipping myself into my quiet tent and leaving my little darlings to it this afternoon.

The mere thought of the Nativity play makes me want to rock in a corner with a bottle of tequila.

6 weeks into a 9 week term <wail>

TheDrsDocMartens Wed 29-Nov-17 20:37:50

I got in the tent today blush just seemed to be particularly chaotic today

Come on snow day. There's supposed to be a really cold spell coming up. Maybe if we all chant it?

Snow day! Snow day! Snow day! SNOW DAY!

Balfe Wed 29-Nov-17 21:14:15

Our heating has broken twice and no joy.

Is there a snow dance we can all do maybe?

MsJaneAusten Wed 29-Nov-17 21:31:11

Seems worth a go...
<joins the chant>
Snow day, snow day, snow DAY, SNOW DAY!!!!!

ILoveMyMonkey Wed 29-Nov-17 21:36:27

Snow, snow, snow, snow.

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 21:40:32

We have an "Christmas shopping day" each before the end of term. Head is covering!! Mine isn't until the last week, but still grin

millmoo Wed 29-Nov-17 21:42:22

SNOW SNOW SNOW !!
Please please please ... Iā€™d do anything for a day off šŸ˜¬šŸ˜¬šŸ˜¬šŸ˜¬

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 21:50:16

I don't want snow because i have a 60 mile round trip, and I would have to leave before the Head made a decision...

noblegiraffe Wed 29-Nov-17 21:51:26

That's ok, Fallen, the snow day can happen on your Christmas shopping day then you won't be put out wink

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 21:52:08

Oh, that would be lovely!!

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 21:53:52

Seriously though, no snow days for me for, er, 8 years, I think... Do I live in a temperate microclimate?

noblegiraffe Wed 29-Nov-17 21:58:40

Must be near me, we seem to be snow-resistant too. Staff do get all misty-eyed remembering the Great Day The Boiler Broke.
The boiler breaking now would make no difference because it costs too much money to switch on anyway.

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 22:00:40

Actually, we did have a day off last year when there was <ahem> a sewage issue.

noblegiraffe Wed 29-Nov-17 22:02:10

My head would have probably called that a 'Bring Your Wellies To Work Day'.

MsAwesomeDragon Wed 29-Nov-17 22:14:15

We have an official snow dance that the teachers perform in the staff room whenever there is the slightest chance of snow. It has not, in 12 years, ever produced an actual snow day. We have twice had snow bad enough that my dd's school was closed, so she came to school with me and spent the day colouring in at the back of my classroom or building snowmen outside my classroom window.

I am exhausted. This term is always bad, but this year it seems worse than normal. This year seems to have had more "extra" stuff than usual.

TheFallenMadonna Wed 29-Nov-17 22:18:09

We get quite a lot of new students this time of year (AP) and it is hard work.

leccybill Thu 30-Nov-17 09:31:05

Seriously feel like like we've been in November for years. Why doesn't August go this slow?

High school here - horrid, corporate academy, and the kids are getting viler by the day. And there's 2 parents evenings in December - joy.

TheFallenMadonna Thu 30-Nov-17 17:20:56

It did in fact snow today shock

Only a tiny amount and not laying obvs, but still!

Balfe Thu 30-Nov-17 19:10:37

Weather warnings for the east of the country, teachers of MN!

MiaowTheCat Thu 30-Nov-17 22:04:34

The day the boiler broke I was on a course so didn't get the day anyway!

This happened in 2003 and the injustice still hurts now!
