Why? How? It Always Happens to Me!
No pictures again today – I did take some but I haven’t had time to upload them – so something for you to look forward to tomorrow.
So on the online learning thing I am doing our teams were assigned today; I hadn’t seen the announcement until I read a post in the forum saying that a person was in a team and the team lead was “the excellent Cathy” … this always happens – I just be me (helpful, calm and patient) and the next thing I know I am the leader … would one of you take a good look at my back and see if there is a sign there telling the world to make me a leader …
… anyway I teased the poster that I already had a “nickname” but that whilst I would try to live up to excellent there is no I in team and so we would all swim (or sink) together …
… since then two of the team are still incommunicado which when we have just five days to collaborate online and submit an assignment isn’t long -so tomorrow if they are still a no show it will be a team of two! At least the team leader hasn’t gone AWOL as n one of the other teams apparently!
What amazes me are the number of folk who are unhappy that they are assigned a team rather than choosing who they work with … I mean it is not like they have to get married or anything – it is a week’s commitment to cooperate; I love opportunities like that … am I odd?
The day started off on a sad note with a fatal road traffic incident in the town – lots of emergency service time taken up and road closure – the works. On the plus side Pup and Dog walked past a garden where two yappy terriers lie and although Pup was pulling to get through the hedge to say “hi” Dog was silent – if a little skippy! So he earned them more smelly fish for their tea – it is great I only have to say the words “smelly fish” to remind him to calm down.
After that I popped into Forfar to get my Disclosure done for my Steps for Health volunteering; exchanged a brief half a sentence with Weather Guru, had a light lunch and then went to visit Evelyn. Back to Forfar for a quick supermarket visit and then home to feed the boys – and do my homework.
