Oh, so that was why there was the big pile of "pancake stuff" in the supermarket this morning.

Even though I could have pancakes any day of the year I'm like a child with pancake day. Sadly today I have a tummy upset and other problems so won't be eating much :( It just wouldn't be the same on another day.

Unsolicited advice - dontcha just love it??

In other news, I am procrastinating from going to bed. I had really better do that, seeing as how I was half an hour later than intended getting into work this morning…

Help me! I am currently procrastinating from marking the yr 9 assessments. I just cannot be bothered to work right now, but they need to be done.

Anyone fancy joining me for a G&T?

Slackers; how come you didn't finish it? Why don't we make a cocktail that I 'invented' when I lived in my old village, hence it was called the Strathyre Sling: home-made sloe gin topped with Prosecco*, served with a smile :)

* I suppose Champagne would do as a substitute :)

Any suggestions on how to avoid doing courses gratefully received, thank you.

Wednesday afternoons are meant to be "not available to anyone afternoons - we're doing training/meetings etc".

I HATE THEM! I think I've done every course known to mankind, yet all the practice manager can ask, as she did today, "what course are you doing today, Liz?"

Out of desperation, I'm gathering together as much paperwork as I can to prove I think I've done them all and I don't need to do any more.

Rant over.

I got to that stage about training courses, Liz, and took to pointing out that it was (a) a waste of resource (b) I had so much else to do that it was limiting my efficiency and (c) it meant that nobody from my team was available to deal with the public. Fortunately I had at least halfway sensible management at that point - good luck!

I have to do a certain amount of training every year as part of the rules of the governing body, and I know a lot of other jobs are the same ... but it doesn't make it any more interesting!

There seems to be rather a lack of staff training days at the Chalet School ... :lol: .

Thanks for the sympathy, Alison H and Noreen.

I've done all the courses available to my grade and in connection with my workplace and I'm still the same grade, they haven't helped me up the promotion ladder one little bit, and once I've done them, that's it - no further mention of them, so just can't see the point.

Liz, could you suggest that they might like to fund you to do some training/development beyond the standard courses that you've already done? An Open University module or similar? If you found something that would have some relevance to your job they might be quite keen on that (not sure that 'the role of the doctor in children's literature' would fit the bill but you could try :) ).

Every topic this afternoon I see Finn being excited. :)

Will this take your mind off things?

I have a hoodie with that text on it :) well, the first two lines. Enūma eliš, or the Epic of Creation. My old professor hates it!

Enūma eliš lā nabū šamāmu
Šapliš ammatum šūma lā zakrat

Etc. ad inf. ;)

I'm impressed. It looked to me like one of those IQ tests where you see 4 symbols and choose what the fifth symbol should be.

It's a script called Neo-Assyrian and it's horrible. I prefer Old Babylonian, which is much more interesting and intelligible! :)

There are over 600 cuneiform signs in regular use. It's a fun language to learn!
