Eyes fixed on progress

Eye'll be watching you ...

I just had to use this pic - taken in the aftermath of a scarily efficient eye examination. Made me feel like a corpse - "eyes fixed and dilated"! Even the dreich afternoon felt bright and glaring, if blurred enough to render crossing the road a hazardous pursuit. I'm happy to report that I'm back to normal now.

But I'm even happier to report that at least one of the teens from the Creative Writing blogging experiment has been resoundingly successful in her Standard Grade exams, including her English. You can read what she has to say here. It has long been my mantra that "writers write", and blogging is such a live medium for doing just that. Well done to her, and to my other student who phoned with his good news.

But I must stop thinking like a teacher - don't want to find myself inadvertently trailing up the hill to school next week!


  1. Which pupils do you mean, exactly? ;-))

    I always did find you scary anyway!

  3. Well done! Hey... we could start new blogs and call them "disfunctioning bodies". With your eyes, my Jaw and John's arthritic pinkie, we really could have a great!
