Wet, wet,wet!

Had a busy few weeks.

For the past two weeks and for the next week I have been keeping my hand in with the Geography world marking Edexcel GCSE papers. I have actually enjoyed the experience which has all been on line (I have changed; before I started I was all for a red pen and paper scripts. I now am definitely converted to the idea of on-line marking which is much quicker and easier, especially in getting feedback on marking standards)

Interspersed with all of this I have had several ML days;

Another wet day; the Nantlle Ridge in the mist
I have been supervising Duke of Edinburgh groups for Kent County Council. I really felt for the students as the weather really was not playing ball. It practically rained from start to finish of their expeditions.

I have also been working on Charity and Challenge events as an ML. Also wet, as well as leading a group along the Nantlle Ridge in pretty foul conditions. Views seem to have become somewhat a rarity!

A wet day filming for Countryfile!
I also had awet morning with the Llanberis MRT filming with the BBC for an episode of Counryfile which is due to be shown on July 15th.
