Phew, made it.

Three weeks done. Another week of tears (mine) and stickers and chocolate. Still feeling grateful for all the support.
When I got home this afternoon, Adriano had arranged a mini treasure hunt for me and a card to say well done for completing another week. How cute is that? I LOVE HIM SO MUCH!!!
Then we rushed in opposite directions: he to a night out with old schoolfriends in London, me to a night of bingo.
Yep, you read that right. I went out to bingo with a bunch of teachers, and was home by 9.50pm. I am the business.
As I didn't win, I guess I'll have to go back to work on Monday.
It was hilarious: I felt like I was trapped in an episode of Phoenix Nights. As we left one lady croaked at the top of her voice "antibiotics can sometimes give you diarrhoea".

Today I taught the difference between there, they're and their; equilateral and isosceles triangles; pilgrimage to Mecca; and (supposedly) how to sit and listen to others' opinions. One kid, aged 8, told me earnestly that he wasn't allowed to use the red pencil to colour in "because red is the colour of the devil". Um, ok, how about the green one then.

My beautiful niece is 13 today. Happy Birthday my lovely!

I'm sure I read somewhere that bingo is the thing that all the beautiful people are doing these days, which probably makes you a fashion icon :)
