Week 35 - One Daily Positive. Back to school week.

Back to school this week, with 3 days to set my classroom up, training and find out who I'm working with this year. Then staggered intake for the new students, starting school for the first time, meeting parents and learning names. 

We've also had plenty of visitors this week and we've been out most nights. Our friends from South Africa on their way back from Europe and dinner out. Last night with the teen on Tuesday so off to his favourite restaurant. before he left on Wednesday morning, then Peter's colleague arrived in the evening. On Thursday child 3 of 5 arrived with his girlfriend for a fortnight. 

Peter is in Pakistan next week and I'm looking forward to going back to work for a rest. Then Eid and a 5 day holiday where I plan on catching up with some sleep.

Day 241 Sunday. On the beach with friends on a stop over on their way back to South Africa.

Day 242 Monday. What I'm doing now, what I do a lot of, drink tea.

Day 243 Tuesday. At Dubai Marina with the teen at his favourite restaurant, over looking the water.

Day 244 Wednesday. The sun rising as I arrive at work.

Day 245 Thursday.  Late night after collecting child 3 of 5 from the airport.

Day 246 Friday. Child 3 of 5 and his girlfriend.

Day 247 Saturday. Family photo.

  2. Fabulous photos this week. It sounds like you've been very busy with all your visitors, but it must be lovely to see your son. Hope all goes well with your new class.

  3. Good to have friends and family come to visit. Must seem strange to be seeing one son off and then collecting another.

  6. have a great time with your son while he is over. Sad that as one comes another leaves. Sounds busy with the visitors.
    What time do the children start school if the sun is rising as you get there?
