It’s very unusual that anyone says their holidays seemed much longer than they actually were. More likely, complaining voices claiming that the holidays just “flew by”, or that they “just weren’t long enough” can usually be heard echoing around the staff rooms of most schools. However, my recent 6 week long service leave (explaining my absence from this blog) seemed, happily, to linger far longer than the number of weeks stated. The Covid related restrictions forced us to remain in WA so we took an opportunity to truly relax. While we did manage a few “mini breaks” in the capital city and along the southern coast, watching the days slide lazily by at home left the impression that time had really slowed down. It was bliss! However, all good things come to an end (so they say) and I’m back in class, working with a wonderful group of young people. Check out tree of my holiday photos, including one of a full size replica of Stonehenge.
