I've lost it

I got my copy of our corporate plan (no, I don't know why schools have such a thing either but I've found it best to just keep quiet) So, I'm reading my department's section, I'm not too fussed about the other lots, just my bit. I read about what our plan was for last year and how we acheived it and it all sounded very what splendid.

I read about how we had appointed AG as a Subject Specialist and that this extra cost was justified as we had a complete 100% pass at A level etc blah blah blah. I momentarily wondered why I'd never met our subject specialist and mused over how strange it was that we had the same initials...

Yep, it's official, my brain has retired.

Didn't anyone tell you, that once you hit the big 40 your brain goes into nosedive. Ahhh, the joys of middle age grey hairs, double chins :) TFX

My brain has retired, yet I'm only 25. How weird is that?

Oh dear Auntie Gwen but I agree with Annie, it's not exclusive to the over forties x

Mean Mom said...

What a coincidence! Who was it, then and why have you 2 never bumped into each other??

Jannie Funster said...

My God, those are beautiful kids!

Saw you through Lena's site.

I'm 44, brain's long-gone.

100%? Clearly brain not lost, merely left in the classroom for the benefit of the ungratefuls

Isn't there a song something about, "Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most" ?

I've had so many senior moments, I have become my kids' main form of entertainment.

I think you'll find that AG is you, you twit.

This is my first time to your lovely blog. We both frequent Indigo's art rich blog. I have to say, your children are insanely beautiful and trust me I am not prone to hyperbole about people's children.

TF - joyful ain't it ?

Annie -I'm sure mine retired in my 20's too

Berthddu - I'm sure it's because not only do we have work, but all kids stuff,house stuff, family stuff and the stuff that no one else wants but ends up with us !!!

Mean Mom - I've not met her yet, not sure I'd recognize her !

Jannie - welcome, glad it's not just me then ! and thanks, they're not too shabby looking

NB - why thank you, I might post about my fecker of a day with my 6th formers who are EXTREMELY ungrateful

Shirley - loved the comment about you being the main form of entertainment, BBD does an impression of me that's too accurate but none too flattering !

Lisa - it'll be under a pile of unwashed sports kit or something

Barry - thank you so much, I'm very proud of myself now, get me, a subject specialist !

La Ballette - thank you, I love them very much. I'll be returning the visit asap

Well done, but do they take it off you for having a mush brain? (Don't let on and no-one will ever know)
