For me that always means doing the jobs that came along during the term and I thought (to myself) - I'll do it in the holidays.
So far, that means redesigning my music room - a.k.a. Abbey Road Three (ART) or The Vault.
As a kid I'd love redesigning my bedroom into various configurations. It's a great way to do a big tidy up, and conduct a 'Ray clean' - you know, vacuum all those out of the way areas and dust stuff to an exacting detail
(BTW, 'Ray clean' references Seinfeld in The Statue episode).
In this case, two days have been devoted to reorganising my prized possessions.
Holidays are also great blogging times. My Wozza's Place blog is currently contemplating the start of my teaching career and life during my first three schools: New Plymouth Boys' High School, Macleans College, and Waimea College.
While doing this I've been reading old school yearbooks and digging around the photo archives. Some great memories with a load of great people that I've had the pleasure to meet (and teach) via my career.
I realise what an honour this is - to pass through many people's lives and maybe have an influence.
I. Love. Being. A. Teacher!
