The strawberries are over

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

Keyvan has posted up about his library look up code. It’s exciting that we might all be able to find libraries with ease and have the library records incorporated in our usual internet book searches. I’m back in Norwich after finishing the CELTA course. I’m taking the opportunity to spruce up the house a bit. […]

What’s new

Wednesday, July 25th, 2007

I’ve just taught my last lesson on the CELTA course and it went quite well so I’m feeling quite pleased with myself and ready to go out and get a English teaching job. The school at Camden is winding down and preparing to be gutted and turned into something new. It’s kind of sad to […]

Wednesday, July 11th, 2007

Day Seven of No Sugar! I’m doing fine although I do have to keep reminding myself not to eat sugar. It’s hard to remember, especially when you are hungry, to eat something sensible and not just munch on a chocolate. However I don’t really miss it much. I do feel a tiny bit thinner but […]

We just say we exist

Monday, July 9th, 2007

So much has been happening lately. I was so pleased to hear that Alan Johnston had been freed that I cried. I became suspicious of Facebook and their data collection. I finally finished an assignment for my OU course. I gave up sugar and feel a million times better and I rediscovered Cake – the […]
