It's raining cats and dogs

Oh my, winter is definitely here now. It's raining cats and dogs and it's freezing cold. I don't feel like working at all, I just want to snuggle up on the sofa, watching a good movie, sipping on a cup of tea and having some white chocolate biscuits. Unfortunately, that's not what my life looks like at the moment. It's more like - You better get back to work now lady, you hear me? Or you'll be sorry tonight when your students come and you haven't prepared anything. Oh well, dreaming comes cheap there days, just about the only thing that it is now, isn't it?

It's 1.30 PM and I've already had my first 2 hours for the week. Now I'm "free" until 5 P.M. when my "little girl" comes. She's 9 and has severe learning difficulties due to not breaking completely the reading code. She still guesses a lot so in the end she doesn't really know what she's reading, and that makes her too slow to keep up with the rest of the class. I wish I could get a magical wand and help her, but unfortunatelly I'm not a good fairy so we just have to read and read and read... Hopefullly she'll get is someday soon, so we can catch up on everything she's missing now. She comes twice a week so I can help her with her homework (in Spanish).

Mondays are a tough day for me, because I teach 3 classes. Between 7 and 8 P.M. I teach English to an 11-year old boy and to my DS11. I help them with their homework, explain grammar and teach them vocabulary. It really is a relaxed class but it's still a class and I still need to prepare stuff.

Well well, time to get back to work!
