Day 274
This week I am going to sue a single word to inspire your journalling and photos
Prompt 274

Today I spent the day at our annual assistant SENCo conference, networking and learning, sharing and discussing all that we needed to for the children we CARE about and for. If we didn't care we wouldn't be in the job as we certainly don't get paid for what we do, or necessarily get the recognition for it either not that we look for any but you know what I mean.

day 263

Day 263
Prompt 263
I was a woman never thinking of others and my life was so lonely didn't care for anybody but then I happened to meet a begging man in the street as I turned down his praying I heard someone saying: "ah -Treat him well, he is your brother you might need his help one day we depend on one another love him that's the only way on the road that we're going we all need words of comfort and compassion treat him well, he is your brother love him that's the only way"
He is your brother - Abba

I struggle with this as I frequently am told off for being the opposite to this. I try to help where I can but have been known to buy food and drink for a beggar rather than hand over the money just as I'm a little sceptical as to if that's how it would be used. Just a pic of me and a buddy having a good time today as no begging men met.

What has made you feel like a Super Truper today

I arrived at work this morning to be nabbed by the head and told she was altering the timetable again. Well we've only been back a couple of weeks and we're already on version 3 so this is a bit of a pest. At the staff meeting this evening though it turns out I'll need to be a real super trouper as it's going to be different every week for a couple of weeks due to various problems.
