Just a few (!) photos from our long weekend. We went to the island of Mallorca, and stayed not far from Palma. It was lovely! We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a family room which was on the terrace just above the beach. The weather was perfect, the water was warm, Palma was beautiful and it was a lovely thing to do on the last weekend of the holiday as there was no time to fret about going back to work. I have chosen some of my many photos from around the place. Not much explanation needed really!

Steps to the Cathedral with these green man water fountains.
We had an interesting trip back, surrounded by this very posh family who had four children, two of whom were well behaved and two of whom were not. One of the not so well behaved children was a little boy of about three. He was very clearly and well spoken and was asking lots of clever questions such as why was the plane going backwards? ( We were reversing to go to the runway.) Instead of answering him his Mum basically told him to be quiet, so he kept repeating the question more and more loudly. Shortly after this she said to him ''Soon you will go to school, and your teachers will ask you to sit down and be quiet!'' Well you can imagine my thoughts at this point. I was extremely tempted to turn around and let her know that before I asked him to sit down and be quiet (!) I would praise him for asking such good questions! I didn't though! He was a very interesting child. They all had great names which I made a note of on my phone in case I ever want to write a short story about them!
Work has not yet managed to spoil my holiday mood though it came close. The morning was related to planning but was a bit of a repeat of things we did last term so I could have been doing something more useful instead. The afternoon was spent trying to clear up the dirty heap of stuff that has been
dumped moved into the new classrooms. I went for a pizza with my friend in Blackheath after work and that was nice. I am going to try to go in early tomorrow so I can get something useful done before yet more inset, involving things I have done before.
