Social Interactions

I took part in the social contact survey!

I took part in the Social contact survey, which said that if I were a celebrity, then I would be a Amy Winehouse! Go here to find your contact type, and help with scientific research.

I just took part n a social contact survey, it's a proper scientific survey that's asking you about the people you make contact with on any given day. The results above are for Tuesday, which is a busy day for me as it's Rainbows and my knitting group. While I'm not at work alot of my social interactions are made via the internet, but if I was at work I dread to think what that shape would look like, as a teacher you make alot of social interactions!

Signs of summer

The Swifts are back. I am rather lucky to have a colony of Swifts who live in the eaves of my house and a house over the road for me. They've taken a very long time to arrive, but this morning I unmistakably heard them calling as they swooped past the window. They're actually pretty rare so I am lucky to have them but crikey having 20 of them swoop past your window makes a fair racket. You can hear them here.

I think my chances of getting a good photo of them is pretty small, but now I have a new camera I might have a go when the weather perks up a bit, at the moment it would be black bird against grey sky, not very photogenic!
