End of Cert TESOL this week, and fantastic weather too. Everyone has been having lessons outside and enjoying the unseasonable warmth. Normally I have to put in a request for some nice weather for my moderator, but this week saw days and days of wall-to-wall sunshine.

Slight change of timetable today, as the voice I lost over the weekend hasn't quite returned. We decided to do some of the paperwork which we will need at the end of the week. I will probably be run off my feet marking, and won't see much of the outside world, so don't expect much in the way of interesting pictures this week! I did, however, spot this in the college car park! It tickled me as it looks the way I feel - a bit cracked!!On the other hand, I feel sorry for trees which are buried under concrete and can understand the bid for escape:-)

Yes! The first camellia is now open. I'll send these pics to #ELTpics as an example of sequence, which is this week's category.
I've just got time to go down to the village to check on the arrangements for our party on Friday. We always do a 'thank you' party in the afternoon for the students who come for the Free classes, before going out for a meal at the end of the course. We are having incredibly low (Neep) tides at the moment. It almost looks as though you could walk to France across the sand. Every time I come down, there is no water in the harbour. You can see the silt in the picture too. I think they will be dredging the harbour in the near future, or the boats will have even MORE difficulty getting onto their berths.

My trainees gave me this beautiful bouquet too.
