Not the first day back at school!

As I mentioned, between years out, I teach primary school. Well, this is one of those years when I’m NOT going to teach! The decision was made because we have annual contracts here in Kuwait, and at contracts time last year I was recovering from the nephrectic laparoscopy (kidney removal), and pissed off by school politics.So, here I am, sitting on my bed at 3.30pm, having taken a shower to wash off the day’s salt…. Here’s how I spent the first day of school this year:

And here’s how I started the year last year:

Without a question they are undeniably cute. Admittedly, this wasn’t on the first day – it was about Day 4, by which time they would have stopped wailing, had they been wailers – but this class weren’t! They just came and enjoyed school!

But anyway, as I was enjoying the snorkeling on the islands today, it crossed my mind that I was missing the first day of school. And you know what? I didn’t miss it in the least! What I missed most was the hilarity when I get home on the first day of school, and my dog spends 10 minutes sniffing my legs, which I’m assuming is because the new babies I teach all hang around at that height!
