With all the time in the world, you'd think I'd be writing more. I think I could be doing a whole lot more, but really, there seems to be a whole lot of nothing.
School starts again tomorrow - for my class, this is an entire class without internet or technology at home to do anything. I've been sending them stuff in the mail, but 2 weeks on, some of it is still out there. I had no time to do anything before schools shut - we had about an hour's notice this was happening. We had had PD on the Friday before (I was off as am asthmatic and was wheezy that day and was not sitting in a tiny room with 20 other people!); then only 3 of my students turned up on the Monday (I was still off as at 11am had been told by doctor I was going back to school till who knows?! I still don't know - NZ still in lock down level 4 for at least another 10 days. Even if we drop to level 3 , i still don't think schools will reopen as normal. And I'm also pretty certain many of my students won't turn up, even at level 2, until cases truly do drop. I'm also very worried about the area I work in, as it already has pretty dire health outcomes, over crowded houses, food availability can be touch and go etc etc). My students also will get boxes from the Ministry of Education and School Kit. It's all pretty generic stuff though and many of my students are ESOL, so it might be a bit beyond them too.... There WILL be an impact on them missing regular school.
Who really knows where this will go. I am proud of our prime minister who has moved fast ! I'm so glad we went into a total lock down when we did!
Crafting... well it's what keeps me going. I've been on a dishcloth bender knitting 15; have made 12 6x6 rows of little squares into bigger squares; unearthed a long lost cross stitch and found another quilt that just needs binding finished being sewn down!
OH - can't seem to upload photos today... no idea why!
Anyway, hope all is well in your part of the world. It's hour by hour here really and an awful lot of tea drinking which I love. I might bake some cupcakes today - a friend kindly dropped off 2 huge containers of flour for us!
