Normal Life

It seems like London is returning to normal... well, all those who weren't too closely touched by tragedy last Thursday, I suppose. Thankfully, no-one I know personally was affected by the bombings, other than getting stuck in the city centre. Hmm, that's not strictly true, as I suppose we are all affected by these kinds of things, thinking just how quickly our whole life could change. Yet, we must put it into perspective, London still seems a safe place to be.

Starting tomorrow I'll be teaching a big group of Italian teens ("Y'know - all sunglasses and scarves" says my boss) on an intensive two week course, on top of my normal teaching. I've finally been given the course book, so am now off to sit in the sun and drink a beverage whilst I prepare my lesson plans. Ciao!

YES! THE REALITY OF THE SITUATION HAS 'STRUCK HOME' TO SO MANY PEOPLE NOW; WE ARE ALL POTENTIAL VICTIMS FOR THE INDISCRIMINATE EVIL MACHINATIONS OF THOSE WHOS ONLY REAL AIM IS TO CAUSE DISRUPTION AND CHAOS TO AS MANY AS THEY CAN. TERRORISM CAN NEVER BE DEFEATED AS SUCH, WE CAN ONLY TRY TO MINIMISE THE EFFECTS AND, HOPEFULLY, GET ON WITH OUR LIVES AS BEST POSSIBLE.
 
All's to do is go on and spread more than your nornmal dosage of random acts of kindness to offset the random acts of violence I guess.

Italian teens huh? I look forward to hearing about those adventures.
 
Hey, glad that you or no one you know was injured. it's a really horrible thing that happened, yet it still feels in a way as if it didn't happen. I guess that's cos I'm in Ireland and I've also been away from news + things for a couple of days so it's still got that unreal feeling.
