I get back to work tomorrow after nearly a fortnight off due a back injury. It’s been the longest period off work I’ve ever had – I think the previous record was a couple of days with flu (and not just man flu!)
On reflection I think I was quite lucky that when I fell I didn’t do any lasting damage – it’s frightening to think that just a few inches can make the difference between a bruise and a wheelchair.
I’m looking forward to getting back and hope I can get up to speed fairly quickly. Thanks to all my colleagues who have wished me well – particularly my secondary head teacher friends who sent me a lovely bottle of Shiraz – very nice!
