This is the lovely Marilyn on crutches. Sadly I've looked decidedly less glamorous as I've hobbled round school for the last week. There was a low point on Thursday evening when I had to hang around for four hours to play one short piano accompaniment in the Key Stage 3 Prize Evening. There was an even lower point on Friday morning when torrential rain got the better of me somewhere between my classroom and the Head's Office. I staggered into the meeting, apologising for looking like a bag lady...
"My Dear Jan," the Head replied smoothly. "Bag Ladies don't wear Berghaus!"
It didn't make me feel much better... The coat in question was a present from Mark about seven years ago. It is well-used, much loved and well on the way to being extremely scruffy. The Head was just being polite ~ bless him!
Anyway, things are looking up in our household. Mark went back to work today. I also did most of today off crutches. I have an immensely busy next few days - concerts, parent's evening, a fashion show and the Prom - so it's been a relief to be able to move around unhindered. In all this chaos I haven't been posting much, but it's been lovely to read everyone else's news.
