The good, the irritating and the seriously grumpy..

The best was really enjoyed work today. Several coaching meetings, and a team session, all of which I love doing (and may even be good at). So even though it was Edinburgh, and an early start, it was a good day.

Hannah had: made pizza dough in breadmaker; done Latin (English to Latin, so quite hard); did some more comprehension from her GP English book; some NVR; reviewed angles from her maths book; did her Spanish (we are using this, which seems to really suit her); and finished a Sequin Art project which has been on the go for a while. Looks surprisingly nice.

I came home, and ran her down to Tesco, as she wanted more Sharpies (really encouraging the mind mapping atm), Bob came home and assembled the pizzas. Hannah has gone to athletics, and I am fuming about the non-reporting of my recent scans and biopsies. I felt I fell through the NHS net a bit, went private, and while it accelerated the process of getting things done, IĀ  CANNOT get anyone to call me with results, despite VIS promising faithfully he would do this (and has taken down my phone numbers 3 times now). I phoned the hospital, discovered he had now left for a long weekend, and was told “I’m sure he would have called you if there was anything to worry about”. Er no, we dumped that philosophy about 20 years ago. Called my GP, and he can’t access them as they haven’t been signed off yet. Upset, angry, fed up.

But did sell another course this evening šŸ™‚

    šŸ˜¦ about all the health stuff. Not sure what else to say šŸ˜¦

    Wondering about mind mapping for Fran, since she seems to struggle with organising her thoughts. Any recommendations?

    Spanish looks interesting – pretty good value too there. Gwenny has an American “Spanish in 10 minutes a day” book, which is good in that it encourages her to do it every day and she can do 10 minutes and not get bogged down too much, but althoguh she is learning lots of vocab, she doesn’t have much idea of pronunciation. Might offer her this one too šŸ™‚ Does H have Skype? They could practice their Spanish conversation together šŸ˜‰

    Merry: we use Buzan’s Mindmapping for kids book to get started. We did have Kidspiration software but it had to be well patched for xp and have never managed to get it going on Vista.

    Alison – its the best we’ve tried, but the pronounciation is still a problem without feedback. Still looking for a teacher šŸ˜¦ I uninstalled skype – my initial idea was to use it for coaching calls but our broadband isn’t stable enough. Iplayer a prob as well for same reason.

    Nic – I did warn you šŸ˜‰
