So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria, God and life, teaching and gardening plus the occasional cow

Glad, Bad, Sad

My course seems to be going ok, I’m really enjoying the teaching, but maybe not so much being in a stuffy classroom, maybe its my age, but I’m often too warm, the students have found the thermostat and keep on turning it up!!!

Friday was a busy day, and after the first snow and tackling Present Perfect we were all feeling a bit knackered. Then came a call from the Boss, confirming just the number of books I’d ordered- and being tired I started obsessing over it, not being able to get the numbers right. Then the Boss rang again, offering me a job in April one day a week for ten weeks -Yay!!! That afternoon I had to go to St Margarethen to meet one of the owners of one of the flats I’m key holding for , and they had done all the shopping that was needed for the flat. Glad!

After work was over, I went to meet Dave at the carpark and there was a terrific bang as two cars collided on the junction, someone had ignored a stop sign, there was a lot of shouting, it shook me up, maybe after my own accident.  Bad!

Then in the evening, I had a message from my friend Elke, whose dog, Lea  I might just have mentioned, as  Swingle’s great play and run buddy. But Lea is no more. A typical teenager dog (a year) she  was wont to sneak out (especially if no one was looking) and take herself for a walk, despite their best efforts with fences and tying her up. And yesterday she met a car on the road. I’m so sorry for the family and kids, have sent my love and will pop round soon. I do hope they find a replacement quickly. And I will have to take Swingle one day to see her friend is no longer there. Sad
