When you’re happy and you know

I am just a little bit happy at the minute. And actually that’s really pretty happy. I’ve met another human that I actually like enough to want to spend time around and a lot of the time.

What do you do over 7 weeks of holiday?

One amazing thing about working in a school is the holiday time. This is supplemented when you work in a boarding school and at random points in the holiday you get an extra week, summer holiday being one of these holidays.

As me and Alice set the world to rights,… Continue reading 11 drinks and a hell of a hangover later

Exercise and Nutrition (part 2)

My weight loss journey began with a journey to India. No it wasn’t a radical diet camp set in the Indian sun, but I took a gap year to recover from the hell that was my A levels. I went Bangalore and worked for three months at a school. I was teaching remedial Maths and English… Continue reading Exercise and Nutrition (part 2)
