first day of term

School time has come around again.  It was my first day back yesterday.  All the new students had to give a short presentation on themselves and their work.  I was getting nervous just watching them!
I drew everybody next to my notes to help me remember who said what when I start teaching properly.  I think some are more flattering than others... hmm... they can all get their own back on me when I have to give a talk about my work next week!



  1. Ooh, I remember giving that presentation...just the memory brings me out in a cold sweat!

    By the way, I always loved The Selfish Giant...apart from the ending. I thought the Christian bit was so jarring and unnecessarily dominant. I know others will disagree, but I think the story is subtle and beautiful and is better interpreted in the reader's own way. Your version looks the business and I'll definitely be buying it. :)

    1. oh, thanks! Yes, standing up in front of a room full of strangers and telling them about your life in fifteen minutes is a tad stressful! Only fair that they make us do it too!
