Hello everyone. Life has been hectic in the CC cottage for the last two weeks. Ali had a couple of asthma attacks at Uni last week which were caused by a nasty chest infection. So she went home to Granny & Grandad for five days to recover. Thanks to G & G Ali has returned to Uni today ready (almost) for lectures. We went down to Dorset for a visit over the weekend and enjoyed Granny's delicious braised steak hot pot; and we celebrated Tony's Birthday which is this week. We also had the added bonus of seeing Ali, which was lovely. Earlier in the week with school I went on a visit to Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth to look at reimaging and rebranding with A level Geography students. The weather was horrible but we went up the Spinnaker Tower and had a reasonably good view. The shops were nice too. The students spent time doing their research and assessment but it wasn't easy for them in the pouring rain.
