Back to school blues….

Early morning indigestion

Motorway congestion

Students fully of germs and bugs

Too much work and brain fug


Brow burns

Streaming snot

Sore throat

Head hot


Wake up feeling dreadful

First cold of the season

Grateful it is weekend

And I don’t have to pretend or reason


With unruly students, pesky pests,

Procrastinators, sharp-cornered desks

Eager beavers and teacher pleasers.

Sat in bed instead with TV and Maltesers.


Pass the tissues, please. XXX

Fire burns at back of throat

I’ve got the lot

I am a school teacher and a mum and a red cosmic skywalker, and sometimes a netball coach...but beneath it all I am a writer...
