SATS week.

This week is a highly charged one, Beth is doing her SATS and Carl starts on his A levels, so its a touch on the hectic side at home. So far Beth has said that the science and English have been OK to good. Tomorrow is the final day with the Maths tests. Unfortunately that is not Beth's favourite subject . She finds the mental maths all a bit daunting, she has been having a tutor at home and has come on leaps and bounds. So I am hoping that tomorrow goes well for her.
Carl Has his first A level on Friday, but he seems pretty laid back about it all, so fingers crossed for him as well!!
This week has been a hard one work wise and its not over yet. Its had a real low with the death of a colleague on Monday. We have also had lots of unfinished business which has taken a lot of time up and I have come away feeling as if we are not in a good place. I suppose I will have to grow even thicker skin to deal with it.
I am looking forward to Friday, the last day at work before two weeks leave. I am going away on Monday with Beth's class for a school trip to Streatley Upon Thames, taking in Windsor Castle, Legoland and a deer sanctuary. I haven't stayed in a youth hostel for a huge number of years!!The week after we are off to Great Yarmouth for the spring bank holiday.
