As I sat in the staff room finishing my lesson plans, I was toying between the idea of either going to the pub with my colleagues or going home to a pizza in my pjs.
I didn’t have to wait until 6:45 for someone to finish work. I didn’t have to spend a fortune buying junk food for 2. I didn’t have to worry about being freezing cold in a crappy room in an uninviting house. No one to hover over my shoulder as I did the scratch card, telling me I wasn’t ‘scratching’ it properly. No music blasting out at full volume. Just a little bit of peace, quiet and calm.
Pjs. Pizza. Salad. Donuts. Hot Chocolate. Book. Gavin and Stacey.
This was an absolutely perfect way to spend my evening after a really stressful week.
I love my job, without question, but I’ve barely slept this week and it’s really taking it’s toll on me. I’ve been over-emotional, agitated, grumpy and I hate feeling like it.
At the end of the week it’s been just perfect to wind down on my own, in my own space.
Contrary to yesterday’s over-emotional post, I’m feeling much better about everything today. I suppose I just needed to pull myself together, but thank you to everyone who messaged me – I really appreciate it! xo
