A ridiculously early Transpontine start, and then it was a day of new school timetables over in SE21.

Change is always good - even in a school where you are working with some very special pupils. That nice Mr Ofsted seems to agree :wink:

As ever, the day became lost in a run-around schedule from Reception through to Year 11. I have never experienced this level of variety in any other job. I absolutely love it.

Highlights included Christmas concert rehearsals, fruit salad making and then learning about the inter-relationships and connections between Medieval monks, knights and peasants.


Not even a Herne Hill downpour later in the school day could put a damper on things.

I deliberately delayed my SE21 exit to try and let the roads dry out.

Yep - I really am that poncey about getting my Brompton wet.

I stopped off along Brixton Road to pick up some much needed supplies of Transpontine Di Lieto olive bread. Mr D had already sold out. I bought a couple of lovely bloomers instead.

And then back to base, a bit of publishing and DARTS.
