A long time ago in a town not so far away

Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl. He lived in costal North Yorkshire and she lived in urban South Yorkshire, over a hundred miles apart, how would they ever meet? The boy was a romantic but geeky soul and he placed an ad for a pen pal in SFX magazine. The girl was also geeky and romantic and replied to the ad. They wrote to each over for a few months about things like "Buffy" and "Angel" and "Joss Whedon". And then the decided to meet.

That was eight years ago today. They met in York and went to see "Minority Report" and six months later they were married.

I hope you found what you were looking for darling, I know I did.

I may very well be crazy

I mentioned fairly vehemently before about being made redundant. No one ever wants to be redundant.

Well I now have a plan about what I want to do post current job. I'm going to train as a teacher. I know I don't want to keep on doing what I do at the moment, job satisfaction is a distant memory for me.

I come from a long line of teachers, going back well over 100 years. I grew up in a household with four teachers in it, which is more that a little bit intimidating. And what do I want to Teach? Well Design & Technology of course. There is the little matter of getting on to a course, surviving two years with not a lot of money and then actually finding a teaching job. Yes, I think I am crazy.
