July is nearly done.
Still waiting for the Summer to arrive to be honest but today I think that the Summer might well and truly be over. Nothing much to look forward to - just a monster of a Dissertation which hasn't really started yet. 15, 000 words in 3 weeks. Haha.

It's all in my head. Honest.

Alas, July has been interesting. Both in a good way, a bad way. Perhaps I'll get round to filling in the blanks later along with posting some photos.

On the 'to do list'. Amongst other things.

Been busy.
Which, for once, is actually true.
I started teaching again last week. I had a class of 16 Austrians to contend with but thankfully they were fine. Being teenagers there was every chance of getting a couple of them who were 'pains' and this group was no different. One of them just didn't want to do anything. So, I beat him around the head until he promised to show something motivation. I didn't actually but the idea was in my head.

This week I have spaniards, a few Swiss, an Italian, an Icelander and a Russian. A bit of a melting point but could be worse. I even asked one of them to leave the class! It was more of a 'go outside and calm down' malarky but it felt good to get the 1st one out of the way.

Alas, i've not really had a chance to say much about the wedding. I'm not sure I really have to. I think it spoke for itself. I will simply wish the happy couple the best of luck for the future.

Might get round to an update soon but might not given the arrival of someone unexpected.
