Summary: It's quite pleasant at the moment, doing what has to be done, enjoying a lunch break - a 'Training Day'! All Hell will break loose tomorrow.

Peaceful corridors
lend purpose to the day's work;
school starts tommorrow.

This really made me smile. My youngest daughter is a primary school teacher and I am sure she would know exactly how you feel!

Loved it!!!

I remember these days...but I always found the empty corridors a bit spooky without the kids..
Nicely captured Janie, Good luck with the term ahead!

So true! (My mother and aunt were both teachers, so I've heard this feeling described many times!). And beautifully succinct.

But: "tomorrow"!!

Thanks for your response, Holly! 'Tomorrow' is now a distant memory.
