Post Removed

I wrote a post here earlier today about a study support session I’d had and how it had affected me. But then on further consideration, I felt it was perhaps not fair to talk about my students at all, even in the abstract. I forget what an open, public arena this is! And for me, the benefit came in writing about what happened, and I felt better for having just got it all off my chest.

Anyway, apologies for the rather messy posting today. I’ll write properly tomorrow.

  1. No need to apologise but it was reassuring to know what happened to the post. I suppose a limited-access blog might be a better place for it since it’s not public and you know exactly who is reading. I’ve always found it very helpful to have that support (although sometimes when it feels I most need it I can’t find the time or energy to write).

  2. Dear litlove, I didn’t see the post but am glad that writing it has been good for you. Agree it’s probably better not to leave it up though.

    Crikey a mouse has just run past my foot!

    Have a lovely weekend.

  3. Pete – oh I don’t know where I would be without the support of my blog friends! But I think for me, sometimes the posts that are written when I’m not sure what I’m thinking (and I write to find out) I think are irritating afterwards, or at least they irritate me! I don’t think anyone could have traced back the student, but then I thought hmm, maybe better not to write about that at all. I think you’re right that the private-view blog is a better place if I need to write that kind of thing.

    helen – I am concerned for you with that mouse! We get them in occasionally. Once, one ran into the kitchen while my son had a friend over. I screamed (naturally) and the boys came to see what the fuss was about. My son’s friend put his hands on his hips and sighed and said, did I want him to remove the mouse for me? I was hugely grateful and the boys set to with my son’s fishing net. They were both about 9 at the time and did enjoy being superior! Have a lovely, mouse-free weekend, too! 🙂

  4. That’s a great story! I think sometimes it is a great trial for a boy to have a mother…

    I hate to write this, but we have rats in the ceiling as well! We hear them scampering about at night. My little daughter now has the added social grace of pointing at ceilings (not always ours) and shouting ‘Rat! Rat!’ I am fond of the rats and as yet my partner has been dissuaded from doing anything about them. As for the mouse, it was very bold and even ran across the bed when my daughter and I were playing on it this afternoon – all during dinner it was scooting about and E was shouting ‘Rat! Rat!’ (but she’s always seeing imaginary animals, mainly peacocks) and my partner never saw it. However, the mouse went too far and strolled across a very well-lit patch of sitting-room floor; K finally spotted it and is talking about traps. I know, Beatrix Potter has much to answer for, I feel sad for the mouse.
