HUAIROU, Beijing Province:
Back to school, felt a bit funny today - kinda dizzy & shakey... no idea why, don't know if I need to have some vitamins or something! hopefully it'll go off soon!
Lessons went fine, because they've just finished their exams I thought I'd do quite a fun lesson, so took in a bowl, water and apples and tried to play apple-bobbing with them, after teaching them it last week for Hallowe'en.
Class 7, normally one of my favourite classes, didn't get into it at all, although I think partly because I was feeling a bit funny I wasn't my enthusiastic self - it definitely makes a difference!
The other class really got into it though - I saved til right at the end of the lesson, instead of doing it first, and they found it really funny.
Anyways, got home and did more prep for our Friday tuition, but an hour before they were supposed to arrive, Tony's Mum rang Sarah and cancelled! They've rearranged for tomorrow, I spose we've got more preperation time...
We went to Woman Love for dinner, and half way through my noodles Connie called, and told me that the Chinese school has agreed to pay me 50元 per session, and I agreed to cover Sarah's earlier classes (the not-so-nice class I covered for Efren for two weeks). This does mean though that I'm doing double the work and only getting paid 2/3rds of what I was originally offered!
