With a cruel irony today (the Last Day) dawned overcast, dull and depressing. But with a pleasing justice the day developed into a gloriously sunny day by the time I had to leave!
Only in this country would the powers that be end a long, long year with a two-hour meeting. And only in this country would benighted teachers of a foreign persuasion talk enthusiastically (!) right up to the bitter end. I was driven to read my mobile phone to stave off insanity!
Eventually (a much used concept in my experience of school life) this too ended and after saying goodbye to various colleagues I was free to join the heavy flow of traffic clogging up the motorways of Catalonia around Barcelona. But who cares when two whole months of holiday stretch ahead!
Lunch today was in a restaurant in Gava that we hadn’t tried before: fideua, rustic chicken and a delicious chocolate cake and the usual red wine and gaseosa and all for €9. Sitting outside in the sun and no school tomorrow.
Life just doesn’t get better!
