Sunday night blues have been replaced with a fantastic monday, despite the horrendous winds and rain and general darkness. But I did not notice it, because I was inside staff rooms and classrooms, busy for once in my life! This kind of day would have sent me into a spiraling bad mood a couple of months ago.

I’m glad I got to finish reading this before the hardcore lesson planning and stress of the teacher training started. 
The final section affected me a lot, it was very touching indeed. I love novels like this that cover such a breadth of time and character/world development.
In other reading news I have been reading all the KS3/4 texts. Bunker Diary… Boy in Striped Pajamas… Now is the Time for Running…. Maggot Moon… Anita and Me… Private Peaceful… Some good, some not so good, I still prefer my adult reads!
