The prompt this week was ‘but my poor old feet’
I tried, I really did, to keep up with the others. They were fitter, younger, faster. And seemingly better equipped for the journey. I plodded on but my poor old feet were squashed into old boots that were falling apart and had developed a leak just to add to my misery. Each time I looked up I seemed to have fallen even further behind. I rummaged in my pockets for a sweet to keep me going, but found only empty wrappers. On reaching the summit, clouds came in and we could see nothing.
This half term we have been doing coursework. The experiment that was chosen was adding an indigestion tablet to acid and counting the bubbles that were produced.
Difficulties included – no decent response with 0.5M acid, but far too many bubbles with 1M.
– students couldn’t count the bubbles fast enough, even over 15 sec. In some cases they couldn’t count high enough!

You may remember that I went to find a number of Gromit statues back in 2013.
Well, now there’s a range of Shaun the Sheep ones, raising money and awareness for the same good cause, supporting children in hospitals. Only this time, the trail is bigger. Much bigger. There are 50 sheep in London at the moment, with a further 70 due to appear in Bristol at the beginning of July.
I went to London last weekend, with a group of wonderful teachers, the majority of whom I have met on twitter, and most of them I had previously met in real life too. We had a fantastic day, walking around London, enjoying the sites and hunting for sheep. It was great to switch off and be me again for a short while, not worrying about exams, results and the pending school move….There were also enough of us that there were lots of people to talk to as the (very long) day progressed. Apps downloaded and phones in hand we managed to collect 45 of the 50 sheep over the course of the day.
Here are some of my favourite photos that I took
