This half term break has been the most relaxing, and to some boring, break I've ever had. My boyfriend and I have stayed in most days, hanging out it jammies, messy buns, instant coffees and watching Canada kick ass at the Olympics. I could not ask for more. I know the other NQTs at the school are off in the Netherlands, Poland and Czech, and probably will find my break incredible dull or a waste, but its exactly what I need before I go back to lessons on Monday. I was disappointed two weeks ago when everyone was booking flights and deciding what to do, but now I couldn't imagine doing anything else this past week.
A and I did go out a few times this week (we're not exactly the hermits I may have painted). We went into Windsor twice this week. When looking at places to live before we came over here I really wanted to live in Windsor. It is beautiful, charming with narrow roads and lots of things to do and see. But, way out of our price range.
We visited the castle, my absolute favourite thing to do (I have a year pass to the castle). I love going at different times of the year. Seeing the garden change throughout the year, different installations and just the ornateness of the place.
I know I'm not supposed to take pictures inside the rooms, but I couldn't help myself. This room was beautiful. The wood panelling on the wall, the throne, the perfectly lined up chairs with the gold against the deep blue.
A and I were supposed to go into London today, but there was some sort of problem with my pay from the agency, again, so I won't be paid until Monday, again. Oh well, we did have fun this week and London is always only 30 minutes away. Next weekends adventure!
