End of Christmas

Today marks the end of the 12 days of Christmas. So I thought I will post the set of Christmas Lights that I photographed during our walk around the Central London.

A busy week before the busy weeks

Finally, I got around to start writing about my Padua trip which we undertook just before Christmas. I have two more posts on go, but at least I have made a start. You can head over to Memoirs of my travels to have a look at the posts.

During this week, I have been busy doing my online course on Teaching Computing from Future Learn and completing it, earning a certificate and gaining more confidence in my teaching methods. It was a tough nut to crack. It has been ages since I sat down and completed a course. I register online and forget about it after a week because it is difficult to fit in with the schedule. Apart from that I also finished my lesson planning for the next week for all the classes. It wasn’t easy but I got there in the end. That is why I could get my travel blog going today ( I am skipping my GCSE lesson preparation as I don’t have any classes next week)

My school starts Monday and I am sure it is going to be full hands-on. I do hope that this sinus and cold which has flared up again after a short respite will reduce over the weekend (have found out a herbal medicine which promises to fix it quickly, let us see) It is not a good news with the flu season at its peak now. I do hope that it gets better soon.

After a very long time, I have sat down for close to 3 hours and typed non-stop (also found some time in between to binge watch a few episodes of Mrs Browns Boys). I need a break. People who are enduring the snow and extreme cold weather, remember hot chocolate is the best remedy (like the one we had in Italy); dark chocolate (70%) with very less milk and corn flour mixed in it. You have to eat it with the spoon but keeps your body warm for a long time. Try it 🙂

Until my next post, ciao!

Representation in a cup

Now that my school is starting from next week, I am getting ready for that slowly and steadily. I needed a hot carry-on cup with a lid (side note: in a school you shouldn’t be carrying around hot drinks, even if you are sick you need to have a lid on it) of my own. I was looking for some of them online and in stores but nothing caught my interest. I came across keepcup in a magazine which gave me the idea of ordering my cup with the colours of my choice. So I decided to represent my family in this cup. An Indo-Irish (it sounds better this way, that is all) family. Given that our flags have the same colours (and Italian too) it was an easy choice to make. What do you think? Too cheesy? 😉 Well, at least I will recognize my cup anywhere in my school and trust me, that comes in very handy.
