Sorry again that I have been MIA for the past few days – I finally have the internet sorted in my flat!
So the time has finally come – on Saturday I moved to Taunton to start my new job. The move was pretty smooth – I have the flat to myself until another girl moves in when term time starts in September, and I have finally sorted the internet out – woohoo!!
I am just about settling in to the day-to-day routine which starts at 6.45am when the wake-up bell goes off and I get the girls up and to breakfast for 7.20am. Once I have ensured that the students get to lessons for 8.30am I am off duty – it appears that I will normally be using this time to go back to bed for a few hours!
I have free time then until the ‘afternoon shift’ starts at 3.30pm with registers and an hour of sport. The sport varies (the facilities here are amazing – like seriously, the best I have seen in a very long time!) – yesterday I was working in the fitness suite, but there are options of rounders, volleyball, swimming and croquet amongst others!
After sports and dinner, the students either have free time or an evening activity is arranged. So far the activities have been archery, jewelerry making, a dvd, and tonight we are off to Brean Leisure Park…
Bedtime is at about 10pm, when we are then on duty overnight until after breakfast the next morning. So far so good – the first night was pretty hectic, and we have since has fire drills etc which meant getting everyone up, but other than that I am settling in pretty well.
The verdict is – very full on and hard work, but good fun
I have a feeling I’m going to enjoy my next year here…
Posts coming later on about how I am managing my diet
or not, and fitting workouts in here.
What is your daily routine?
ps – Sorry this is all words! I need to start cracking out my mad photography skills around here!
