Weekend Coffee Share: A Gratifying Week

wordswag_15073188796611453091488.pngIf we were having coffee, I would greet you with a big smile on my face. This week has been gratifying. Why? Because I achieved so many of the things that I wanted to.

I, of course, completed my assessment of my students – just in time to complete their report cards. Friday we had a PA day; that is, a day set aside during which teacher’s could work on their report cards. Last week I started toiling on them and, I am pleased to say, Friday I was able to complete them. They may need a tweak here or there, but for the most part they are done. It is a big relief and I am glad to have that task out of the way.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I went to my second BodyPump class at the gym. This weight lifting class is something I will attempt to do every week now. I am lifting light weights until my body gets used to the activity and, in this way, I will not hurt myself. I went to the class with my colleague., leaving school at 4pm to walk to the gym together. I never thought that there would be a time when I would go to gym with my mentee 🙂

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I FINALLY went to see the latest Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi. I had planned to see it with my family on my birthday – but we were too engrossed in watching Game of Thrones to go and watch an episode of another epic tale. My response? I loved it! And I am so glad I had the opportunity to go and see it on the big screen. I enjoy the story that runs through all of the films and I hope they do not stop filming the struggles of the Rebellion. I do not want to wait for over a decade to enjoy the scenes originally thought of by George Lucas.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the last few days have felt like Spring. For the second time this year (that is, since the beginning of 2018), we are experiencing a Spring-like thaw. What a pleasure it has been to go outside hatless in 5c weather wearing a lighter coat. I am sure, though, that by the end of the week we will be experiencing Winter once again!

If we were having coffee, I would tell you to enjoy your week. Now that my deadline for writing report cards has been met, I now have other obligations to fulfil.

What would you tell me if we were having coffee?

  1. Glad you finally got to see the film. I enjoyed it too 🙂 🙂 You mentioned 5C as Spring temperatures. That still seems pretty cold to me, but it’s all relative, isn’t it? We’re supposed to hit 12C tomorrow, then slither back down to 6 or so 🙂


  2. So many good things. It sounds like you had a great week!! I’ve seen this idea of the “pretend coffee/tea party blog post” before, but never tried it myself. I really like the idea of getting to know a blogger better this way. It makes the rest of the blog more interesting as well.
