School's out!

on Thu Dec 21, 2017 9:23 pm
Well, school finished yesterday - not back until Jan 8th. Off to the Wirral tomorrow, so not the best day to travel.

Coming back on Christmas day, as my wife is working Christmas night. Makes for a quiet drive home. Will be nice to stretch the legs on the Jag. May even achieve 25+ mpg!

Then I have a job interview on the second day back at school.

What are you lot up to?

You know what teachers are like??

Oh, we really need a new head of photocopy supplies, and a new head of department in the staff room biscuit supply department ...... of course we’ll pay you more, although we’ll have to put you through a capability interview to keep the Governers happy, but the jobs yours !!!

It is the same school / teaching Photography. I'm applying for Head of House - this involves being in charge of the pastoral welfare of 240 kids! With a significant pay rise....

Good luck

Out of interest, do you get much of an issue from teachers that you’ve spent most of your career not being a teacher?

No, quite to opposite. I bring experience to the table - having my own company, working for Damien etc etc. Teachers can be quite dull - until they're in the pub for Christmas drinks; but that's another story.....

Many teachers have gone straight from school to university and then back to school again. Our school has a fairly good mix.

Good luck Hugh.
I'm back tomorrow, or actually today. Being awake at 3am doesn't bode well...

Thanks Teeps - annoying when you can't sleep.

I'm back next Monday; quite like breaking up closer to Christmas (20th Dec) and not having to rush back in the NY.

I made it out, went off to Budapest in Hungary, Drove to Passau in Germany and a river cruise with mainly Germans and some French who became quite friends to Hungary and of course back. Or I wouldn't be posting. Only a few miserable hours sleeping in freezing temperatures in a motorway stop near Passau... because I'm a super fast driver and got there a bit soon.


Not as good as time as Crix on some other thread. But OK for me.

A wonderful and successful new year to all of you.

I said a small prayer to fix my weaker leg at a Jesus in Spitz, Austria. Don't know if it worked. But I was up the mountain near my work and I swear the path was clear when I went up and when I came down one tree was over the path and I heard another 3 crack as they fell down. I returned safely and really fast, Leg didn't feel so weak, in fact I ran like the wind itself over some ridge where the wind was super strong.

I was fitter, but I've kind of found out my left leg is not really in a good condition, but it's bits and pieces I guess going wrong and not the main part of my body thank goodness.

It's a good laugh for me, we have gym at work and those guys and girls come out slightly sweaty after a work out with their bottles of water. I come back, in shorts and wind proof jacket, breathing like crazy, wet hair and totally red faced.. after being out in the cold for more an one hour.

There is keep fit and there is just go totally mad..

I am very interesting in going to the gym. The trouble is....mainly to just see women jiggling in as little clothing as possible. Preferably i'd bag a treadmill with a view of the pool, too.

I suppose my right arm would get a workout.

Not quite yet - still enjoying the 500 bhp with lashings of noise - slight fib; not much use on cold, damp roads. Also very much liking the new Brabus!!

Well done Hugh.

500 BHP ouch. 110 BHP through all 4 wheels here. The only way I know I'm accelerating is - I have the fuel consumption on instantaneous read out. Razz
