The secret to success is constancy to purpose.
It was good for me to read this quote today. It beamed out like a beacon.I am back at school. We have had 11 kids start and I am in bit of a quandary as to where to start with my lessons. I guess the main thing to go back to is the purpose of what I am doing and who am I trying to please. My purpose is the welfare and learning of my students. I need to be consistent with this and not let the politics of the workplace get to me.
It is raining lightly. A bird has just landed in a tree outside. it is difficult to get a good view of it through the rain.
I had always called these Wonga pigeons or Wood pigeons, but after much hunting in Neville Cayley's What Bird Is That ? and on the internet I finally decided it must be a Brown Cuckoo Dove, otherwise known as a Brown Pigeon - Macropygia amboinesis.
Looking up through the trees on my front footpath the sky is grey.
But as soon the sun is out again and I can just about see the grass on my front footpath growing before my eyes. It loves this weather in summer.
I need to get out and cut it but I have an electric whipper-snipper and I don't like to use that unless it is completely dry.
With school issues and some personal issues, life is just a bit hectic at the moment, so I may not get as many posts out for a short time. Hopefully things will calm down soon.Interesting sites
