    Cleaned my desk, it was full of treasures!

    I've finally got a free hour (yes they do exist) and had cleaned out my desk and good lord the treasures are bountyful!

    I have in my possession
    • A box of 2000 staples
    • 4 staple removers
    • 9 hold punches
    • 3 filing cabinet files (empty)
    • 6 old newspapers
    • a jar of mayonnaise (it has been opened) with a use by date of 2009.
    • 6 mugs (2 of which had life growing)
    • A box full of kettle leads and other assorted wiring
    • and 3 dictation machines.


    Quite glad I did it, it was a good clear out!

    I cleaned my desk once. I found out it was made of this strange wooden material rather than the layers of crap that's usually on it

    Oh and

    I never got the chance to clean it from when the previous incumbent had been sitting here. I've given the whole desk a thorough wipe down with antibacterial wipes and will be replacing the keyboard as well today.

    Worst I ever did was clear a classroom out which was to become an IT room...never again...ever...I found a dead mouse, coffee mugs from the previous teacher who left 5 years before I got there, and yoghurt which was literally alive

    I wouldn't worry about that. It's not an issue unless it's developed language skills, then perhaps you have a moral dilemma - disinfectant or peace treaty?

    I did our staff room fridge at the start of the holiday. There was some cottage cheese with a use by date of April... at least the tub said the contents were cottage cheese. I didn't dare check.

    I would have normally as well however I wasn't given a permanent station until 2 months in and every day is mayhem. I managed to book myself an hour free to do this...was glad I did.

    There's so much space for activities.
