It's true ... I watch Fox News because it is just so amazingly appalling. I know I'm British but I have an unhealthy interest in US politics, well probably not unhealthy, it's a healthy recognition that the USA unfortunately impacts my life on this tiny island way too much.
Thankfully this week is almost over - yesterday was strange. My boss was off with a crooked back and when he's been off before I've heard nothing from senior management. It's just been accepted that I'll step up. However yesterday I got an email from our line manager copied to the headteacher that I'll be 'deputising'. And yesterday at least three other members of staff asked if I'll be 'stepping up' when he leaves. ACK. I've NEVER wanted to be the head of a department - ever. I really enjoy teaching, I don't enjoy all the paper work and other shite that goes with the job. However, there is part of me that thinks I should give this a go. This is what has woken me up at 4am.
