  • April Fools
    on Apr 1, 2011 in Uganda indulgence school
    Friday at last ...After the adrenalin rush of the triathlon, Monday hit hard. By mid-day I was virtually crashing out in the classroom and decided I would have a week of total rest and pampering myself! My hair is now chocolate brown again and my fee...
  • The Sprint (?) Triathlon
    on Mar 28, 2011 in sports Uganda Lake Victoria triathlon
    There's probably something wrong with me for thinking that taking part in a triathlon constitutes a lovely day out of the city, but the Lake Victoria Triathlon always has a brilliant atmosphere. School was well represented, with six teachers particip...
  • Switch yourself on and ignore that Earth Hour nonsense ...
    on Mar 26, 2011 in power cuts Uganda solar earth hour
    Today I received multiple invitations to attend 'Earth Hour', which is apparently a great opportunity to save the planet by switching off the lights for an hour. Well excuse me if I do not jump up and down with enthusiasm, but I have had about ten in...

    And the challenge for March is ... a sprint triathlon. This year, the organisers have moved the venue to a pool, so there's no risk of drowning in Lake Victoria or contracting bilharzia - phew! It's a 400 metre swim, 20 km bike and a 5 km bike.
  • Must try harder ...
    on Mar 9, 2011 in International Uganda work school
    Right now we're right in the middle of reports, so as usual, I find anything I can to distract myself. It's funny how I can churn out endless amounts of rambling on my blog, but when it come to reports I am totally uninspired.Maybe if we could write...
  • Shhhhhh - it's a silent disco!
    on Mar 6, 2011 in Uganda entertainment silent disco
    This weekend, I attended my first ever silent disco. I have to say I was a little dubious. The idea of dancing in a room with headphones on seemed a little strange. We went for pre-disco cocktails in the bar next door and wondered how we could tell w...
