This is the unemployed supply teacher’s biggest enemy, so I thought I’d share a few tips for alleviating the boredom.

Worthy things: Clean the kitchen, tidy the dining room, hoover, bake cakes for a grateful husband, trawl TES for new job prospects, write applications for jobs, organise resources, catch up on your reading, go for a run (yeah right), run errands.

Less worthy things: Play on games consoles (I recommend Harry Potter Lego and Wii fit), blog, read blogs,  watch multiple episodes of Star Trek, read depressing TES Supply Teacher Forum, stalk people on facebook and last but not least Stumbleupon!

Things to avoid if possible: Eat excessively, open a bottle of wine at 10am, make increasingly desperate calls to your agencies begging for work (not dignified!).

    If it’s any consolation, I do many of these things at work. Naturally, I don’t drink at work. Although I have considered a hip flask.

    Seriously, I hope this ends for you soon. Keep up blogging! It’s a wonderful distraction… 😉

    I used to do a lot of those things at work too when I had an office job. It’s how I got so practised at whiling away time. 🙂
