End of the week update

How did I get on this week?

Considering I lost such a massive amount of time – Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday – I didn’t do too shabby.

My English student cancelled for this week as she wasn’t feeling well, so the fact that I didn’t plan a lesson or teach said lesson had nothing to do with me.

The university assignments were harder. While I made a start on the research, they require more uninterrupted study time than I had this week. Looking at the list, you’ll probably think that I did get a lot of studying done nonetheless. And you’re right, I did.

However, these are bite-size modules that require you to read a few texts and watch a few videos and comment in a forum. Assessment, if at all, was through quizzes (which you can attempt several times), researching how a topic was handled in your local area or contributing to the discussion forums – not remotely as challenging as written a ten-page paper with a long list of references.

If We Were Having Coffee… On March 28

Hello, my lovelies!

It’s great to see you again. Please come on in for our Weekend Coffee Share!

Today was my granddad’s 90th birthday party and I’ve had about 5 cups of coffee already but I’m happy to make you a cuppa. I might need one more anyway. So take a seat and kick back.

Hello my lovelies!

Come on in and grab a coffee for our Weekend Coffee Share!

It’s chucking it down outside, and it’s gone really cold again so I’ve turned up the heating again. Happy start of spring, by the way….

Spring Nope

 

Oh, and did you get to witness the solar eclipse yesterday? I didn’t really, as I was at work but except for the cloud cover going slightly darker for a minute it really wasn’t that impressive here.

If We Were Having Coffee… On March 14

Hello my lovelies, glad you can join me for this week’s Weekend Coffee Share.

If we were having coffee today, I’d warn you that this is a very short coffee break. It’s going to be instant coffee, I’m afraid, but I’d also offer a bowl of cereal to those who’d like one.

It’s been a hectic week for me, and it’s not over yet.

If We Were Having Coffee… On March 7

Good morning my lovelies!

It’s still early here, and I couldn’t sleep, so I’m grabbing a coffee to wake up properly and get started on my study modules I have to get through today.

You’re welcome to join me for a coffee at the local coffee shop. I was planning to get it to go, but if you’re there we can grab seats and have a bit of a chat and a Weekend Coffee Share.

If we were having coffee today, I’d have a ridiculously large cup of coffee with milk and sugar. Nothing fancy, just straight up caffeine. And possibly a fruit juice.
