Soooooo tired, too early for bed

I had to work today. I nobly volunteered to do taster sessions at the new study centre in Ruthin which had it's grand opening today as part of Adult Learners' Week. Unfortunately it had to be a Saturday so that people who work full time could come along.

The centre is really nice: lots of pale wood and it's quite spacious compared to some rooms I have to teach in. I felt that the interactive whiteboard didn't really produce a good enough image for photography classes, but it may be that the setting can be tweaked. Of course I still don't know how much use the college will be making of that centre, which is on the grounds of the secondary school and I hope we will continue to use the present centre, which is more central, handy for my little 1 mile circuit around the town and conveniently near shops.

We hadn't a clue how many would turn up, but I talked non-stop for four hours and didn't even get chance to grab anything to eat. I therefore missed out on the chance to visit the themed cafes arranged for the language courses! (Welsh, French and Spanish, each with appropriate cakes.) By the time I'd finished, the cafes were closed. I was so hungry I had to pull over and eat part of one of the still lifes on the way home.

Anyway, I took lots of names for courses in the autumn. So it was worth going. If I'm going to work at a weekend, I want to actually work. :)


This wasn't the still life I ate. I'd also taken along a bowl of apples. ;)
