Today’s daily prompt says do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you? Photographers, artists, poets: show us PLAY.

Given I’m a teacher there’s plenty of playtime in my normal life…there’s a bit of basketball on occassion, there’s pushing the cherubs on the swing…even when I don’t really want to, there’s teaching them new computer games and playing them with them and helping them with them.

Outside of work and the cherubs there’s not a huge amount of time for play…my life contains work, study, housework, sleep and having a break usually consists of watching tv whilst doing some work or study…as I am now…season 9 of NCIS is on the DVD, dinner is in the oven and I’m writing this while burning 22 CD’s for the cherubs to practice their Christmas concert songs.

So here’s another view of play…

    Hey, you have the same blog theme as I do. And I am a teacher, too!

      There’s a few teachers on here that I’ve found, or have found me…I’ve just followed your blog, but I’m get to have a read of it.

    Question – if you had one full day all to yourself, what would you do as a form of play?

      Where I live there isn’t much to do for play…people go fishing or out into the bush, I can’t stand either of those things. I’d much prefer to read a book or magazine or watch a dvd or tv show and have some time to relax completely as it doesn’t happen all that often.
