You probably already know that is because I am preparing for another camino, and as such have been concentrating on my other 'CAMINO' blog.
For the next couple of weeks all posts will be live from 'THE WAY' and this blog will be 'dark', 'quiet', 'silent'
Please follow our amazing journey at
First we are walking the Camino Ingles, from tomorrow.
Then we will continue to Finisterre and Muxia...
SO all my Melbourne chums, Check out the details on the site, and book your ticket now.

It feels like something is telling me to step back from the computer.
For the last few days the desktop PC has been playing around. On Friday it decided to lock me out completely. No matter what I tried I couldn't get it to start up.
Today I unhooked all the peripherals and took the tower off to the repair shop.
That was this morning. They couldn't say how long it would take but so far I haven't heard anything.
So this evening iam typing this on my phone.
I just hope it's nothing serious.

It's the end of term, almost, and the exams for the advanced class was last week so I thought that a film was in order. They are all happy to improve their colloquial language in this way. As Julie's and Liam's classes are in the same position we have combined our groups for a couple of classes.
I had seen the ads on TV for the film and thought it looked amusing - Little did I know just how funny it was going to be. It is written by Seth MacFarlane and is in the same irreverent style. The language is a little 'spicy' shall we say, and there are some adult scenes, but my students are all adults, or near enough.
I can honestly say I haven't seen anything so funny in a long while. Julie, Liam and I have been laughing heartily, and wiping tears from our eyes. Now some of the humour has gone over our students heads, but on the whole they too are having a good laugh.
We've only seen just over half the film and I'm looking forward to next week when we'll be watching the rest...

This will mean I Will not feel quite so pressured with writing a monthly double sheet of TulStig News, yet will keep those of our friends who wish it, up to date.
I have updated the format somewhat too. The newsletter has been going for over fifteen years now and was probably in need of a facelift.

WE caught the bus into town (no parking worries and no need to consider alcohol and driving issues) and met Julie and Bill for an afternoon's libation.
For a glass (and round the neck glass holder) and four tastings plus a packet of crisps it cost just €8
We later lunched in Beverly Hills, then decided that a siesta would be a good idea so caught the bus home again.
There is the option to do this all over again tomorrow, but I'm not sure if we'll partake or not....
