+ The warm weather has awoken all the local wildlife from their winter slumbers. At night the noise outside from the frogs in the dam is incredible. There are lizards on the roads enjoying all the sunshine, and there are birds everywhere. I know it will get cold again, but boy have we enjoyed the last few weeks!
+ I got a tablet this week. Mostly for work, but so far it is a lot of fun. I’m on the hunt for some good android apps for managing all the data teachers need to have, and a few for the kids too. All suggestions gratefully received.
+ This weekend we are heading to a nearby fireworks spectacular on Saturday night, and then on Sunday there is a fundraising day for the local education foundation which gives scholarship s to local kids. In between that, I have exams in to mark (my least favourite thing about teaching), and hopefully some time spent taking photos!
+ I read this post by Dad Down Under and got may ranty pants on in agreement. I often wonder the same thing!
+ I’m so glad that the election is over. Pity I can’t say I’m happy with the outcome. As a teacher, I am naturally concerned about education, and I’m wondering if I need to start training for another job. I don’t hold out a lot of hope for the future of education.
+ I’ve just finished reading Julie and Julia. It’s only taken me a couple of years to get around to it. When I first started blogging, I got asked constantly if I had read the book or seen the movie. At last I can say yes.
+ Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!
