After a weeks break I am back with fix-it-friday. This Friday I'm going to share the video I created on Monday (instead of going to a lecture), that was aimed at making people vote for me and Lana caterers on the committee of the High PEak Club, despite the fact that I graduate next year, and will have managed 4 years at university without being on committee I've managed it just as I am no longer a student!

Anyway here is a video on how to make a mountain cake! (Be warned if you are easily offended I'd maybe give this a miss, it's not extremely offensive, but a cocktail stick did get a little misplaced!)

(Sorry, google video has decided to disable it (copyright?????) , it takes ages to dispute it (and it might be breaking copyright, who knows??) so I'm trying to upload a youtube version and we'll see if that one stays up.

School days should start at 11am!

quick question-
Can I have days like this when I'm still a teacher?
I'm still in bed, and while I have been working since 7.30am it's wonderful to be able to be a bit more time and relax. It's very much needed at the moment! The reason for my laziness, we've got 2 days in university and this morning is individual appointments with one of my tutors. I got lucky and got an appointment at 11.20, so I've actually been able to catch up. Well if you ignore the pile of marking to do!

This weekends high Peak Marathon was a wonderful success, no one hurt themselves, and everyone got home in one piece.
Here are a few quick photos of what was going one, note the stripey wellies, and yes i was me driving that minibus that left the red blurs across the car park!
