Today was a long workday, but I quite enjoyed it because the people I was with were nice. The school was used for a nationwide exam and we had to monitor it. We're not allowed to bring books, so we just sit or walk around all day. Doing nothing all day is really hard work - no joke! I used to drop off for a few minutes and some of the other teachers did - it's strictly forbidden to sleep! Well I do Spark exercises at the back of the room, and some other teachers started exercising too
. It's a good way to stay awake and kill time.
I wore my usual outfit for the job - semi-formal but warm - a black jacket, grey trousers and a bright top. When I went to the ladies room to brush my teeth and generally freshen up, I looked in the mirror and thought, "I look a mess! My clothes look like sacks. The jacket is a size too big and the trousers at least two sizes too big, drooping at the waist and horribly saggy in the back. They fitted last summer. I need to go clothes shopping!
