After an appalling April, a miserable May and what has largely been a joke of a June some decent weather has finally put in an appearance. Even the View from the Rooftops picture taken yesterday was taken at a time when I was outisde in shorts and t-shirt (the less than pleasant looking sky was a bit like a large, loud dog – bark worse than bite).
All is still going well at Learning Works. Yesterday I helped three new learners to access their online learning, as well as my usual administrative stuff.
I notice on the news that yet more deatils of banks behaving badly have emerged – what about these people and the their sense of entitlement, Mr Cameron? Talking of which, I did some job searching today, and did decline to go for one vacancy for which I was theoretically equipped – it was based in a place called Ingham which a bit digging revealed would entail three hours travelling each way (assuming I could make all the connections at suitable times for going to and from work). On the other hand I did go for a vacancy based in Cottenham because I established that the travel for that was manageable if a trifle excessive. There would be two possibilities for getting there by 9 o’clock – leave Lynn on the 6:12 train, arriving in Cottenham at 8:05 via a bus connection at Cambridge, or leave Lynn on the 6:46 train, and again via a change at Cambridge get to Cottenham at 8:45. Sutcliffe’s first law of travelling by public transport (if you decline to allow scope for things to go wrong they will) dictates the use of the first of these possibilities should I get the job.
Some interesting photos today…
