Let's take a break from the Summer 2013 posts to tell you what I have been up to till now in September.
Well, of course I go to school every day.
This year I will be teaching English to 1st,3rd and 6th graders.I have prepared my books and everything so we will be starting lessons from tomorrow.
That doesn't mean that schools will function properly. Thousands of teachers all over Greece have not been yet placed in their positions, hundreds are facing redundancy and we are all getting prepared for a striking September!
In the meantime....I have been Spring(!) cleaning!Well since the flat was closed all summer what did I expect?It needed that now. To get ready for winter!Although it is too hot to be speaking about winter at the time.
I had to radically clean my son's room as he had accumulated so many books and papers in it at his last year of High School. As he will be studying to sit for the Entrance University Exams again in May his room had to be cleaned and his desk well organised.
I have also finished the bathroom, the bedroom, the balcony, and most of the living room!It is only the wall to wall bookcase that is left.Only???!!!!Oh and the kitchen of course but part of it is ready too. So I guess I haven't got that much left. So maybe I will manage to find time for hobbies after finishing the house chores!
All that with a bit of a cold added to them and a nose running.....
Hence there were some visits to doctors for annual check ups too!
Also the Teachers' Association Drama Club started its performances already.September and October will be heavy in performances and rehearsals.
The play "Griothesia"(Old women's Adoption) was presented at Drymos village on Friday the 6th. We were given a beautiful amphitheatre,
and did a rehearsal
and then a preformance.
The view was lovely.
The sunset was wonderful from the top of the hill where the aphitheatre is!
But it was cold and maybe that's how my nose started running!
The performance was followed by dinner at the restaurant and a birthday cake for our friend Areti.
Next Friday the 13th we will present the children's play "Koutornithia" (Silly Hens) again at Drymos at Tsoukies Amphitheatre.And again on the 21st at Nea Elvetia amphitheatre in our city.
September is also the month of the International Trade Fair in my city.
Therefore there is a war like preparation atmosphere where streets get blocked by the police.
More about September tomorrow.....
