At work today, one of my colleagues suggested I try to beat the World Record for eating Ferrero Rocher which currently stands at 9 in one minute.
She lined up 10 chocolates for me and started the clock. Sadly, after one minute I could only manage 6. Still, I enjoyed trying and will attempt the record again in the New Year with some new strategies.
The end of another summer holiday from teaching and it was time for the annual gettogether. BBQ in our garden.
It took a while to get ready. New turf as the old grass was ruined. Take down old shed and build new one. Repairs to decking etc etc, clean pond and count fish (60).
We don’t have a huge garden so it was a bit of a squeeze at times. It was great to spend some time with family, friends and work colleagues. Two of them are the leaving the country shortly and so it will be a while before I see them again.

George and Ruth with their Pavlova. Yummy!

Christian left the College on Friday 22nd June so we all met down Millionaire’s in Langley for some drinks and food after work.
Thanks to Anita and Christian and some cans of silly string, it soon descended into chaos with people running around the car park trying to avoid being caught.
We went down Bar H afterwards for some more drinks, pool and table football.
