First of all, a minor irritant...is it just me, or am I the only one who ALWAYS gets those 'are you a computer' type warped letter thingies WRONG? I mean come on...I always have to do it twice, and sometimes more often than that...Grr. Don't get me wrong, if you've got them for your comments, no problemo...I can see the point, I just wish I could get them correctly the first time.
The ongoing saga of finding schools for Eldest continues.
I would really like to hear people's experiences about changing schools at the end of grade six, to go with friends, to go after a better education, to go to a school you like...whatever. What worked and what did your parents or you do that didn't work. What was important to you? If you could put it in the comments, or if your feeling very inspired blog about it and send a link, I would really appreciate the imput, be it a good experience or a bad one.
If your bored by all this audio file stuff, just skip ahead to the next paragraph.
Finally, here is another upload attempt, this time it is me speaking Catalan, I will get the girls on at some point, but they are at school right now...I am going to try and get a player embedded on the site, but I am not sure when I will manage that. Unfortunately I don't have unlimited time.
Chuck is whining to go out for a walk, or get his belly scratched or whatever, no audio tape this time.
I may be back with a photo of a ruddy great beast of a heavy door that I hauled back yesterday, much to Chuck's horror; I want to use it as a table on the terrace. Nice and big, wooden, fairly solid and we can get our legs under it properly. Wish me luck.
Finally, inspired by Nomad over at Poena I got brush to paper again today, but I am not entirely happy with the results.
Am I the only one who does this? Again on petty irritants it seems...Today I have walked the dog, got two kids up, fed, ready for school, made snack and delivered said children to school. Had coffee with a friend, dealt with e-mail, spoken to the vet, worked with moodle, showered, painted, made an MP3 and (hopefully) uploaded it, read and commented on blogs, and read part of John Irving's The Fourth Hand. I am still going to go into work, walk the dog, and buy groceries at the market, all before 1pm.
Here is my question. Why do I feel like I haven't accomplished anything?
This is the final question, really I promise.
OMGoodness, I should space these out to different posts. I am working on a book club type class over at moodle, would any of you be willing victims/collaborators and pretend to be students so we could give the thing a try when I get it in place? No real names necessary and we could even do a book club kind of thing and all read a book together.
What do you think?
Is that enough homework for you? Sign in problems, You too?
School change stories.
Do you also feel like you don't get things accomplished even when there is plenty of evidence that you do?
Would you be willing to trial run a book club style course?
Sorry about all that, maybe I'll stick a survey up later, along with maybe that picture. Gotta go walk the dog.
