Short and tweet

School inspection last week in November, goodbye any life or free time I may have had.


The hail jing bang is my Scots (word) for today.


"Gentlemen, we have run out of money, now we have to THINK" - Winston Churchill. #GIRFEC is our way of thinking differently.


Looking forward to welcoming BEd student today for start of enquiry week, lots of two-way learning :)


I start my new job tomorrow. It's a school with a lot of aspiration, so I've included chorizo and some date and walnut bread in my lunch.


Favourite question of the week from a pupil: "Are you always like this?"


Watching My Fair Lady. Which is about a woman in an abusive relationship, who also has a stalker.


Pressure sensor connected to my laptop and 100W guitar amp is scaring the crap out of trick or treaters with screams.
