The Best Things in Life are Free

No, I'm not talking about the song by Janet Jackson and Luther Vandross (not as good as the one sung in the musical film), I'm talking about real life.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day.  Blue sky, fresh, refreshing breeze and white fluffy clouds.

My little dog came up and snuggled in beside me on the couch.  Uncritical adoration shining out of its little demented brown eyes.  (I say demented, because I farted just as it snuggled in, and it didn't seem to care)

My beloved gave me a peck on the cheek as I climbed out of bed to go to work.

We teachers here in NZ had another day of action, where we refused to teach our year 9s (11 year olds), and the Ministry can't/won't dock our pay.

Pest Free
Actually it meant that we had an abundance of Free periods all through our day, and the school was Free of the little pests. (Not all, but many)
Twice Free.

Eat more Lettuce
I decided yesterday that my gut had expanded enough to warrant some action.  So yesterday (and for at least the next 2 months) I was/will be Fat Free, Alcohol Free and Sugar Free.
Guilt Free.

Three of my year 10 girls decided to skip my class and have a wander around the school.
Sense Free.
I know the title of this little post is The Best Things in Life are Free , but as these girls cause more mayhem than the rest of the class put together, believe me it was for the Best.  My class was then Free of disruption and I was Free to actually get some real teaching, learning and, Praise Be to the Everlasting Deity of Education (Not Anne Tolley), some assessment done.

I really hope this isn't the God of Education
So as I lay my (not so weary) head down on the pillow last night, I was Free from Care.

Until this morning, when I have to start worrying about timetabling, exam arranging, room allocation, new course implementation, report writing, report generation and as always, relief supervision.


  1. Ah yes, bloody reports! I too am busy with assessments. It seems that, every day we have a strike day, I don't teach that level. Still, I agree about the best things in life being free.

  2. Alcohol Free - No more Stein Lager?

  3. It amazing how no matter what the topic you manage to put a scantily clad young lady in.

    Well spotted. I dont let such a weak brew past my lips.

    Only Whisky.
