An Example of Hoar Frost Jan 10

A Wonderful World

Moving on to the boat is the best thing we ever did. And as the Apocalypse continues to wreck havoc with friends and family, it’s mornings like this that remind me that for all the evil in the world, there is still beauty in this world of ours. The photos below capture a phenomenon called […]

Day 1 of Apocalypse 2: Small Wins

I don’t like change. I suppose it’s because I’m somewhere on some special needs spectrum, which when I was at school was called the Lazy-Thick-Naughty Scale. So the 12 hour scramble to Remote Teaching notice knocked me sideways and not because I wasn’t ready. I was. I had a new laptop. The old one stopped […]

A Very Happy New Year

May it be more predictable and safer than the current Apocalypse

Guess who’s back?

I haven’t heard Bill Hates Youuu for a long time. But the summer was a busy one and, what with the Autumn Term of the Apocalypse happening in reality rather than virtually, my times for hearing him have been limited. But I took the dogs out for a quick wee wee walk, in the mud […]

My Arthur Dent Life

Since this Lockdown life began, like most people I have had good days and bad days. Days when the technology works, days when it does not. Hours of frustration, moments of amazing joy that I am still making a difference. In the old normal, Wednesday was the hump day. The one we all slogged our […]

Show me my photos

(This is a Google prompt inspired piece written by predictive text. Enjoy. Or not.) Happy New year and thanks for all the work you have done. I’m currently working on the project and I have just finished my PhD thesis with a couple of other locations. The first chapter is very often a little past […]

A Frustratingly Ranty Day

Technology is a wonderful thing… Assuming it works. If/when it doesn’t… When I started teaching technology was an overhead projector and whiteboard and a photocopier; replacements to the outmoded chalk board and bander machine of my youth. Now we have computers, interactive screens, and all manner of technology. All of which require that voodoo called […]

After Banana

I will admit its been a struggle to find something to write about in the last week or so. Where could I go after Google and the banana bread? I couldn’t, could I? I threw myself into my writing. Got my Bluetooth headphones to work and listened to “Shady Solicitor” just one more time – […]

Banana Bread Broadside

Not been sure what to write about this week. Not because I lacked inspiration but because I lacked motivation. And because I feared most of my writing would turn into ranting. Cue Google “Ask me how to bake banana bread,” said the little microphone-thingy that invites you to engage the Internet in conversation. I do […]

Sleepless

Head full of thoughts Tumbling, jumblingI stare as Heavy dog, resting his head On my foot, dreams. Twitching happily, Running free.I envy him. For me, sleep dances out of reach So I scroll through Facebook, twitter; play pokemon and candy crush In the witching hour Hoping to feel my eyes become heavier than a dreaming […]
