Week 45 - One Daily Positive and Project 366

A strange week, no one has really made an effort to persuade me to stay in my teaching post, which only confirms that I'm making the right decision to leave. I've been trying hard not to over work myself but I inherited a class when I started that wasn't up to date in regards to paperwork and I found it very stressful, so for my own peace of mind I want to make sure it's all in place. it's also KHDA inspection next week, think Ofsted, so there is still a lot of pressure, then it's National day and a 3 day week, then 2 full weeks till the end of term. I've left work on time every day this week, been swimming and stopped off at the garden centre and a mall for coffee. I put of thoughts of work from my mind, but I still have to do next week's lesson plans and at 4.30pm on a Saturday, with work in the morning I'm not getting much done, having spent today wandering around the Mall of Emirates.

Day 311 Something Red.
A weekend of R&R, shopping, global village for fireworks, the Souk Madinat for coffee with friends and relaxing at home.

Day 312 Fill The Frame

Day 313 8am. 
Well actually 5.30am and 12 hours later as I left for work and returned home.

Day 314 Money.

Day 315 Wish. 
I left work on time and sat at the Souk Madinat for a coffee and to update student files.

Day 316 Time.
Spent the day with friends for Brunch.

Day 317 Where I'm Standing.
Visiting the Dubai Water Canal during the day light.

  2. Quite right about leaving work on time, if you have handed in your notice no real pressure to keep on top of it all.
    The water canal looks amazing at night.
    Bob looks so sorrowful - has he been a bad boy?

  3. Sounds like you did the right thing handing in your notice. If your hard work over the last year isn't appreciated, there seems little point in putting yourself through all the stress. The water canal looks very impressive.
