sorry that i havent been updating much lately. few ppl have been asking for fotos on facebook and on here. i have been very busy. i have taken some of oakham. i am just waiting to put up some fotos in the flat before i take some of the house....been a good week. very busy at work. started playing staff football, soccer to those down under. basically a group of 10 - 20 men who rock up each week and turn a friendly game of soccer not so friendly. a couple of them tried to have a crack at me being the young new guy but i came out allright. my football skills were and still are nothing flash but i have been given the call up for the staff team in a couple of weeks. might have a look into that. some of you may be aware that i am in fact coaching a u14 c hockey team. and apart of that is in fact joining in at training. last week i was absolutely rubbish but today picked up the stick again. the boys may be nearly 4 years younger, 40 kilos lighter and struggling to keep fit but i am happy to announce that i actually could rival them. it was good fun and is a fast game so should help me keep fit. the last bit of news (if you call it that) is what i am up to this weekend. the school has a 'burns supper' which is a black tie, scottish dinner. bought myself a black bowtie today and will get all dolled up drink scotch whiskey, dance and laugh. should be a great night am very excited. have a halfterm holiday coming up in early feb. i am planning to go up and spend some time with nick jack, a mate from school, in nottingham. should be some good times and gives us a chance to catch up.
the school is paying for the gappies to go to birmingham soon. its for a 'gap students conference' but what our 'boss' said it is basically a chance to catch up with other gap students over the bar and make contacts. his words not mine.
anyways must run.
love to all
