On what was supposed to be my first week in school (granted, for inset days), I fell ill with one of the worst bugs I’ve had since malaria circa 2009. It started with a groggy feeling and ended with a drip inserted in my arm, aching all over, sampling the brand new hospital in Vigo. On the plus side, it did give me the chance to sample the Spanish system compared to the UK one. After staggering to the doctors, I was able to see one immediately and was then referred straight on to the hospital, so things happened quickly. At the hospital, I waited for about two hours (which I didn’t think was too bad!?) and then they did all sorts of tests to discover….nothing! Apart from a suspected virus, probably from something I’d eaten or drank. Anyway, this “thing” happened after I’d previously been suffering with a chesty cold for the best part of 6 weeks already. Enough moany awfulness now. But yeah, like I said, its been interesting.
After missing three out of the five inset days I was able to get in for the first day teaching the kids. The children are great. They are all lively and enthusiastic about their learning. This do
