Summer School IV

For those of you who I've studiously ignored over the past month, (and likewise, those of you who've ignored me..!) I've been at Warwick doing the NAGTY maths summer school.. for the fourth time running!

Not so much to say about it all really… it was generally quite amusing, though after 3 weeks of teaching 20 kids I was completely knackered! On Sunday, I left Warwick and headed down for a couple of sunny days in Portsmouth. (Why is the weather in Coventry sooooo bad?! There must be some reason! It's amusing to see their "Summer of Cov" signs being battered by torrential rain..)

And now I'm back in Barcelona. After more than a month of being away, and of that only 1 week's good weather in Germany, I was kinda hoping for glorious sunshine and cloudless skies. The rest of you will be glad to hear that we have neither right now :-(

Well, that's life in a short and not-very-sweet summary! Uni here starts up again in September, so I still have a week and a half of freedom… just need to find something to do now….!

  2. I kniw that it's bit late to comment on this now, but I just couldn't help congratulating you for your excellent taste in music. I mean Nicole and then a whole album with all the greatest hits, well done. You need to bring it to Warwick in Nov so that I can see how many songs I happen to know!
    But to be honest, I bought a nice Schlager-CD as well some time ago, just to have something to impress you!!
    And what concerns the sunshine, I don't quite understand how you managed to have a nice sunny week in Germany, especially in the South. At the moment the only news i hear from down there is that they're washed away by the flood.

    Wünsch dir ein studienreiches neues Semester und viel Glück!
