So here I am eating my sandwich and sitting in my miniscule hotel room – which actually couldn’t be smaller if it tried. Cats and no swinging come to mind! Not that I’ve actually ever tried to swing a cat! And the soundproofing between rooms is – well how can I put it – non existent!
Decision taken: I shan’t be staying here for the course I’m on in March. OK for one night. NOT OK for 15!!
Now about the course. It’s good so far! There are 12 of us and two presenters. Out of the 12, two people are asking most of the questions and also supplying most of the responses to those posed by the presenters. So that’s me and one other!!
Anyway so far I’ve understood everything. Which is in itself cheering!! And it’s been good fun. I particularly liked the exercise where they put us in two groups and we each had to take it in turns to say one thing about ourselves and then repeat the one thing each of the others in the group had said. Then on the 2nd time round add a new bit of information and again repeat everything each of the others had said. We got up to 5 pieces of information each and the class clever clogs (me!) reeled off all of it about all of us without hesitation. Which is more than the others could do!!! Pat on the back to me! I fear I have a competitive streak!!! I just didn’t want to be the worst!
Anyway that’s all for now. I will write more tomorrow!
