Visiting churches

Hey hey, I'm improving. Not sleeping so well but what the heck, you can always catch up on that. Busy day at school, and it rained on and off the whole day. I spent my time sprinting from my classroom to the admin block to the library all morning. Taking my big, dysfunctional RE class to town on the public buses tomorrow, to see the churches of Wellington. Should be fun although it's a bigger class than last year's and less well-behaved students, so I'm a bit nervous about it all. I hope I have it all covered. We leave after Period 1 and get back for lunch. I just hope it's fine weather, pleeeeeeeeeeeeease. I've brushed up on my neo-Gothic and Roman stuff. I know my cathedra from my nave... damn, I remember seeing Chagall's blue windows in Mainz like it were yesterday. It was like breathing blue air. I love love loved it.

I seem to have a lot of friends for whom I don't seem to be able to offer a comment much. If you're irritated about that, please let me know.

ManU champions again! Who's cheering? Just me, Rob my GP ...and the males in our house, of course. Rob phoned the other day about medical stuff and was cheering the team on. Funny to have that sort of allegiance from the other side of the world.

My Ethics class is studying injustice case studies. Makes for interesting classes this week.

But man, I'm beat. Going to bed. See you tomorrow, dudes. Another fun day ahead of us? I hope so. I think I'm ready to take life on again.

-But the little village churches are the best because they've obviously been there for centuries and they give you such a sense of history!
OMG that'd be so great to see. I really need to go on a long trip! Overseas.

-when we're committed to travelling more slowly with some friends, in order to take a car out as well as the van and have a mini-holiday en route.
When I travel with the children, we have an agreement, that if someone wants to stop for a photo, then if possible, we stop. No rushing past things! Sometimes I have to do a u-turn to get back to something we flew past at 100km/h but it's usually worth it. Like that house we saw in Queensland that was being eaten up by the bush. We barely saw it first time, and had to go back to get a better look, AND photos LOL!

We stop quite often (and even go back) for Colin to take photographs, but I've never bothered, because he's the 'official'/semi-professional photographer! So I would feel odd asking, even if I remembered!! In August he'll be taking the van with Charles and I'll be in my car with Carol and her teenage daughter so it will be different! (We'' meet for meals and hotels).
