No Turning Back Now!
Well i've finally taken my first step to a return to reality and there's no turning back now. I decided i couldn't wait for my wounds to heal, its not that i'm impatience...well OK maybe i am just a little!!...but more that if i spent another day in my four walls i swear my brain would of turned to jelly....so last Tuesday i returned to work. Smelly, rude, teenage boys who have not intention of even trying to learn....my god you've no idea how much i have missed them!! I am supposed to do a phased return but just couldn't help myself and worked the full day....OMG!! completely knackered, too tired to even cook my own daughter her tea, zonked on the settee, she woke me up at almost 10 o'clock....note the little monkey knows her bed time in 8.30pm!!....she pulled a fast one there!! Anyway HR have gone ballistic that i've broken the terms of my phased return...something about them not being insured...silly me for a moment i thought they may have actually been concerned about me!!! Anyway i was frogmarched off the school premises at 2pm today and told to only work four hours a day next week!!!!....come on, what can you get done in four hours?!! Anyway it feels good.....really good.....life returning to normal, maybe i am still normal afterall! And i've realised that outside of the bubble that i've been living in for the last 7 months, life exists, all the same problems, all the same stresses, all the same fun, all the same friends, all the same pleasures in life...so now i'm thinking how good it feels to still be alive
