It really looks like being one of those from where I stand.
On top of a normal teaching load with its associated preparation, delivery and marking, this week I have parents' evenings on Tuesday and Thursday and a Year Team meeting on Wednesday. To add to that I have about 170 pupil reports to write (due to be completed by the day we return from the half term break - I managed to complete one set over the weekend), a similar number of assessments (most of which I need to do before writing the reports), and materials to start creating for the learning platform we are in the process of setting up.
In all of this I really need to build in the self care stuff. Tonight I have a massage booked. If I can just keep my eyes open long enough to get there, that is... I recognise I am feeling overtired and overstretched. I am struggling to keep a realistic perspective on various things. I'm fighting against reading into situations things which I possibly shouldn't read into them. I'm not ready for that battle again and I won't go there.
