Cobwebs and crumbs

The vicar and his wife came to tea, and the dust was fine. It helped that the sun was not shining. The cobwebs were not so visible. I was to be seen grovelling on the floor picking up the biggest crumbs just as the bell rang, to my son's amusement, but then I just tossed them onto the floor again. I mean, how can you greet visitors with a handful of crumbs, I ask? Just feeding the birds as you toss them into the garden before closing the door? No, I don't think so. I would have had them thinking I was decidely odd. In true blogging fashion, I feel it necessary to announce that I will be doing the housework. Soon. If nothing more interesting comes up. Maybe. You will be the first to know.

Today I did an "assertive discipline in the classroon" training course. Tomorrow I am on an observation timetable, observing excellent teachers in the classroom. Nothing has been confirmed yet re work, but I seem to be on a crazy meteoric rise up the educational ladder. Completely unexpectedly. I will tell all as soon as I can, but at this rate I will be Chief Inspector of Schools by September. Or Education Secretary. Quite ridiculous. And very amusing too. I walked into a textile class today, and so help me, the kids were being taught to sew zippers in using zigzag stitching. What???? On chiffon. WHAT???? Where was the calico? Not a zipper foot in sight. My muttering became quite distinct at that stage. Good grief. The mind boggles.

So, apart from iced up cars this morning, work, supermarket dash on the way home, vicar to tea, cooking supper, and house group this evening, it has been an uneventful day. According to the news, yesterday was supposed to be the most depressing day of the year. I have no idea why. It does seem a little random, but apparently it is fact. Certainly there seemed to be a lot of foul moods about. Isn't it amazing how one person in a bad mood can change the entire atmosphere in a department? Maybe there is some truth there. Just as well yesterday is gone then. It is out of the way for the rest of the year.

Oh my, oh my, oh my!! Zippers with zigzag stitching on chiffon! I can't even imagine how ghastly that must have looked. What a laugh!!
