The Very End - R2BC

This month's final Reasons 2B Cheerful and, as usual, I'm joining the R2BC linky with Becky on Lakes Single Mum. 

The very end of the long summer holiday.
I can feel that the evenings are already cooler. I am so through with the heat of July and August. Even though September can be just as hot as August, psychologically, it's not so hot even if it is, iyswim. We went out for pizza for supper to celebrate.

A week of sickness, but it was this week and not next week.
We came home from a lovely weekend away last weekend but all our plans for the week were sabotaged when DD got strep throat (a fever, very sore throat, and a hacking cough that would not go away) and was put on antibiotics. Then she got an infection under her crowned tooth and we had to have it removed (luckily it was a milk molar and we saw the adult tooth growing under the gum on the x-ray). I thanked the universe that she was sick this week and not next week when we are both back at school.

I have my timetable for next year. 
I'm a bit panicked as I have extra teaching hours and an extra day at school. However, as I keep telling myself, it's just a matter of having a routine that covers everything you need to do and being strict about sticking to it. It's the last bit I'm not so good at but on September 1st anything is possible.

Poster girl.
At the beginning of the year I set myself a loose target of  10 blog posts per month. Today I'm back on target with 80 posts on the last day of August. Yay me.


  1. So glad you have enjoyed your summer and as you say better ill before back to work! Hope your extra hours work out well. Keep on blogging I am back at it with a vengeance!

    1. I'm finding a place for it on my routine schedule. :) Thanks Becky. xx

  2. Love the concept of a poster girl for blogging! Made me smile which I need this week. I too love Autumn and am not the hugest fan of the heat at all so here is to cooler days with warming food and woodburners

    1. Warming food and woodburners sound wonderful. I was going to buy vegetables for soup this week but I forgot. We're still in summer weather for another month or so even though it will be a b it cooler.

  3. So sorry for DD, two very nasty infections, apart from that, lots of positive news - I'd noticed that you'd been doing a lot of blogging, but I can't keep up at all!!!! Though that might change if things continue as they have this week...

    Also I hope the extra teaching hours also mean extra pay? x

    1. I'm not sure I'll be able to keep up with the blogging so much now that we are back to real life. August involved a lot of sitting around indoors escaping from the heat.
      Yes the extra hours means a bit more pay but otoh, it also means giving up some extra occasional work from my college that fell at the same time. So it's a very little extra but the times are better - more windows during the school day so when I'm home I'm finished with school work.
