All quiet on the teaching front. Or not, as the case may be.

Well, 2009 has been rubbish for me so far writing-wise! Probably Mars and Pluto up to their old tricks but honestly, how long does a Cancerian have to wait for a favourable heavenly wotsit?

And on the teaching front - just as bad! - a series of misadventures among the students involving suicide threats, drug dealers hanging round, self harm, petty theft, and final warnings, has made life interesting to say the least. Bring back the calm old days. I'm assured that the Asian ladies I'm soon going to be teaching for 4 hours a week will be a doddle to someone used to dealing with disaffected youth. Let's hope so...

Fingers crossed!
No wonder you havent had time for writing!

Good grief, no wonder you're not writing. I hope the Asian ladies restore calm to your life.

As a fellow Cancerian, I've come to the conclusion that the price of being such wonderful people means we have to miss out on all favourable heavenly wotsits. ;o)

Oh dear, Honeysuckle, sorry to hear 2009 isn't being very kind towards you, but hey I think there's a favourable conjuction coming your way!
