I have just finished tonight boxing up my professional life. This is what it looks like :
Why this excess of tidyness ? Well, after thirteen years, I have decided to redecorate my study space. It was originally done out as a nursery for my youngest (now age 13) and as you can see from this photo below, the teddies and stars on the wall are perhaps in need of an update !!
Packing everything up into boxes was not only intensely satisfying, it was also quite therapeutic as a way of saying goodbye to the old year before heradling in the new, with its new challenges and classes.
Packing up boxes means that at some point, the boxes are all going to be unpacked to take their place in my shiny, newly-decorated office. I am going to be ruthless. Just today alone I binned an impressive quantity of old lessons and exam papers. Bac exams dating back to 2004, when I know for a fact that all resources are on-line. BTS lessons from 2005 are now out of date and so, are now filed under WPB, as my Dad always says. (Filed under WPB = Waste Paper Bin !!).
In the coming days, I am going to hit the paint big-time !! First decision – what colour scheme should I choose ? This is going to keep me busy for a while, just deciding !! No more teddies, but do I go for cool and restful or funky and colourful ? Decisions, decisions, decisions !
Watch this space to see how things progress and to see how long before I get my life back into some kind of order !!
