I've decided to edit my own poetry magazine it is going to be called A New Ulster and is a homage to Fortnight and the Honest Ulsterman both of which went out of production recently.

Paint that dragon

I just thought I'd alter that to highlight the intent ;)

I think Inso is giving a subliminal message that he wants it to be green

Edited that I don't think Inso wants to wee green as my previous typo said.

I'm getting there .......... you never know what colour it may turn out ! :wink:

I had to go to work last night for a couple of hours due to a power cut and as the boss put it, "dumb & dumber cant get the tills working" :lmao
Anyway I hung round for a couple of hours to make sure there wasn't a repeat as it is an unknown building electrical fault causing everything to trip - decided to go at midnight and my phone went just as I got home to say it had happened again - no tills and a 500 diesel sale on the hgv pump with no way of processing it !
Went back to find an irate lorry driver on his phone to his manager - as soon as he saw me his exact words were "It's ok Sean's here he will fix it"
Just goes to show - I'm just like the ravens at the Tower of London, I leave and the place literally falls apart !  :lol:
Oh and the boss said to book the 3 hours down at double time as I am on holiday - not bad for pushing 2 buttons and flicking a trip switch !

The only problem with being the one who sorts everything out is that everyone always expects you to sort everything out.

Next year I've just been offered a 1:1 digital classroom to work in. That means each child in the class will have their own computer to work on and books will be all but done away with. I'm quite excited about this. The class will be so much more engaged in what they are doing (not that they aren't at the moment but the potential...)  :woohoo: :woohoo: :boing: :yup: :cool: :D

I am officially ready to pour $1000 worth of concrete. :blub:  That's a lot further into debt I'll be going. :tantrum:  But on the plus side, I'll have a garden wall, three large raised garden beds, a wall down my driveway, and a fence with two gates next summer.  Now my other half will REALLY be pushing for a dog.

Driveway section nearly fell over

This post sounded almost like it should be in another thread.  But having that all done does make me happy and less stressed.

Today I put up fibreglass insulation in my basement.  Now my entire floor is insulated, so, hopefully I will have muchly reduced heating bills this winter.  I officially hate fibreglass with a just cause.  I used to just hate it on speculation.

Sounds exciting. I just got an iPad for work a few days ago. Even got to go to the store myself with a mate and buy three of them and choose the colour of the protective case. It's lots of fun :)

Along with the new iPad I received a few weeks ago, and the new laptop for general work with my students which all staff got about a month earlier, Ive now got a netbook to play around on with Windows 8. Soon I'll be found starved under a pile of technlogy unable to break free.
The netbooks are what each member of my class will be using next year so I need to get up to speed on them before I have my new class. No doubt they'll teach me as much as I teach them but that's all part of their learning :)

Well, if you end up with too much technology I'll gladly give some a new home.

I posted in the angry thread so now I have to balance it out.

So yesterday, Nov 30 (as it's still Dec 1 for me), was my other half's birthday.  After taking her out for dinner, I proposed.  She said yes 8)  :lalala: :blink:

so :jawdrop:  :woohoo:.... sorted on a wedding date yet?

In a similar vein...just "celebrated" (ie we both forgot, but I remembered soonest afterwards  :angel: ) our 19th anniversary of being together.

We took our time to make things "official" and then even longer for the sprogs (that take over your life)
