Back to school...


Last night I started my University course. Design for web publishing!
It felt like the first day at school. Nerves. Expectation.
Does anyone remember the beautiful smell of new books?
There were no books but the Apple Imac computer made up for them. It was the first time I had worked with one of these technical marvels.
So slick compared to my work pc!
The first lesson was quite simple but very interesting. Those of us among the twenty-or-so students, who had a background knowledge of web design found a few new tricks with the Dreamweaver software.

The next lesson is on Wednesday when we'll be issued with our student card which will allow us 24-hour access to the facilities! Yeah, right!

When I came out I was horrified to find that my car was the only one left in a LOCKED car park in Middlesbrough. A frantic search for a janitor revealed that, though the car parks were not usually padlocked overnight, a new security firm that had just taken over appeared to have changed the rules.
A few phonecalls later, I was finally freed to nip into Central Park for a bowl of mussels and a tomato garlic bread to settle my nerves.
Can't wait for Wednesday!

A student card actually entitles you to sleep all day, watch a bit of Richard and Judy, then drink lots and lots of cheap beer!

Mary, I love stimulating my old grey cells.
Can't wait to improve the restaurant websites.

Richard and Judy? In my student days there was no afternoon telly. As for the cheap drinking, I think it was mainly Lutomer Yugoslav Reisling.

You think they'd have put signs up on the car park to let people know about the change in rules wouldn't you? :(

Is there no end to your talents? Now you're going to be a webmeister. But MIDDLESBROUGH? You're a brave man, Krimo.

Go for it Bella! Go for it!

Daphnee, the idea of being stuck in a locked car park for the night in the Boro was not one to be relished...
