Bitez Beach

One of the worst beaches I've ever been to, but plenty of opportunities to draw the heaving mass of humanity sprawled on the beach loungers that (almost touching) were laid out for pretty much the entire length of the beach.

Teach First

Very thoughtful blogpost
However I think that Teach First have made a big mistake exposing some of their new recruits to the BBC reality TV programme 'Tough Young Teachers'. I'm glad to read that Meryl Noronha (who was the teacher who appeared to be finding teaching the most challenging) has with tutoring and mentoring rapidly improved, and this year has been classed an outstanding teacher by Ofsted, the schools inspectorate. However I'm not sure that it's fair that her initial classroom errors should be watched by millions and recorded for posterity. Great TV, but it makes me feel like a member of the audience at the Coliseum.

Boots before bedtime

Lovely, squashy, comfortable boots. A consequence of a misspent youth wrecking my feet wearing glamorous high heels.
