Ta to all peeps who left a message in my jounal :-)

Another busy week, lesson observation went ok, apart from being in a kitchen lecture theatre and then playing up as some new was in the room. The rest was fine.

Went to manchester to Friday for inspection training, oh my god is all I can say about that. I'm dreading it

Went down the pump last night which was very nice and saw some nice peeps. It was floggies B-day on Thursday so we all went out for pizza which was also a good night.

Apart from that not much else going on other than teaching, learning, observing. Dull :-)

current mood: okay

Hurrah! Finish Context of learning, yipeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Only 25% of module 6 left to do (which I hope to completed tomorrow)

Professional Journal upto date (whoops didn't do it since Jan, lucky I remebered the main points)

Wish I could send Anna stuff to proof read instead of waiting until we are back at college.

At this rate I might even be able to enjoy the easter hols after all. It will be so cool to have the whole of next week off!

Meeting Annie for lunch, the tonight of down out of the vaults, joy oh joy!

Hope quinnie gets me a fab Easter Egg, though I said I would expect a pink roberts DAB radio insteed (ha-ha as if, think E egg)

What a laugh was teacher game. Totally gave it a 100% work and play, had a great time. Who would of thought a week in Bedford could of been so much fun. Though I think I need to give the booze a rest for a few days ha-ha! Mad some great new pals. Realised how team work is important and how those who only do I, have no place in team. But apart from that great!

Went to beer festival yesterday, not bad, Quinnie had one to many and was v poorly, bless him. Want to party tonight! Need to see what peeps are up to. Tryed to get onto DMU's VLE, plie of shite couldn't get on. It been a total waste of time. Signed up for doing my Level 4 Numeracy Speicalist yesterday, did OK in test but forgot how to do bastard equations. Need to do some revision between now and september. May also look into doing Key Stage 2/3 qual so I can teach in school too, one must always keep ones options open.

Meant to be my early afternoon, but after sorting out offical written warnings for checky students and then going into the staff room and boss wanted me to find some bit of paper from 6 months ago, so ended up spending 45 minutes clearing up my desk with manager offering files for me to store stuff in, most poxy waste of time. Finally just got home, ummmmmmm 1/2 hour before I normally do, so much for time loo. oh well. I should spend my time writting my other journal (teacher Ed), but can't be arsed. Applied for Level 4 Numeracy speicalist for next year, more f*ing journal to keep. The stupid thing is I am sure 98% of teachers journals are made up. Oh well.
Still have cold, managed to blag a facial for free today of a NVQ 2, 2nd year student and a manicure for next week. Though didn't sign up for eyelash perming, there are limits! Bless they are always looking for mugs to that treatment on.
Write back to journal threads, boring

current mood: bored

Been so bloody ill this week, rotten flu, Loads I wanted to do, but spent time in bed. Not good. Most sad to miss M's b-day though saw her today and must say she did look like the glamour queen with her new stylings.
Weds and Thurs were study days at college, boring waste of time not helpped with 10 tons of snot, though made some good suggestions on ILP's which went down well with management. To ill on Friday though, bit better today so I might do some more of module 6, as next week I'm on planning day in Bedford, then it's Maths camp weekend and bedford for the week after. Hate being away from home esp. when it is stuff I don't want to go to :-( oh well. now where's me cough mixture?

Crazy couple of weeks, on the skive from work at the moment though technically not as I should be at college, and today we only have tutorials so a good chance to catch up on were I should be on my Action Research and do some personal devlopment work for module 7. So two lovely hours of hard work before going back to Abbey Park Campus.
So what have I been doing? Well the Quinn and I had lovely Birthdays, meal in the Case was tres bon fab. Both Quinnie and I had a touch of illness so wasn't as wild as we had hoped.
Had college xmas meal for Certed course at Pizza Express. ended up a good night through pricey!
Went to see Miles Hunt on Thursday, Fab gig, got pissed, sang along, got a kiss of the man himself and signed CD with a lovely personal message on (bloody stalker ha-ha) I bored poor quinnie to death, though I think he enjoyed it too.
Saturday night went to Woodhouse eve's for MJ Hibbett and Tube Bar, what a fab night that was. It was like a wedding without the wedding, great to here Hi ho Sliverling as well ha-ha. Stayed over at Bill and Jens and went for a lovely meal the next day. It was likr a mini break.
Right better pull about 500 words out the bag before I go back to college. 4 days of term left... hurrah. Hardly any lesson this week as student are all on IV week a good chance to catch up on some.... lesson plans?

Went for Red this time, it looks very good and it was a real bargin only got charged £10 for the colour :-) Last night went out with girls and had a fab time. This am went to Fosse Park and brought Ma xmas gift of wine glasses. So all in all not a bad little weekend. Just doing more boring college work, Though I should get use to it as if I follow all my ed needs I will be study until I am 36! but this must be done for world dommination or gaining a headship before I am 45 ha-ha.
