Week 8, 9, 10, 11
Half of the week was just like anyother, with all the regural teaching that I do. Then on Wednesday afternoon Easter Break started and all the boarders left to their respective destinations.
I myself left on Tuesday the 29th of March for London.
This week I went to London from Tuesday to Friday. Although I've been in London before I hadn't seen as much of the museums as I would have liked to, so visiting museums was one of my main goals. I also really wanted to go to the theatre as it had been a while.
March the 30th was a brilliant day! Probably the best of the whole Easter Break. I woke up pretty early because I was staying in a hostel. At 8:30 I found myself in St. James' park near Buckingham Palace, where I ate my breakfast on a parkbench, made friends with a goose and got chased by a squirrel.
After breakfast I made my way to the Natural History Museum. My timing was kind of impeccable because as I got out of the underground station, which is located right at the gates of the museum, the museum was opened. What I didn't quite realise, was that there was a large queue of people waiting to be let in. As it turns out I kind of skipped the queue....
The Natural History Museum was absolutely fantastic! The Dino and Mammal exhibitions where by far my favourite. I took so many pictures.
After the museum I went back to Buckingham Palace, where I watched the last part of the changing of the guards. After that I went back to St. James' Park where I had my lunch.
In the afternoon I visited my beloved Harry Potter shop at Kings Cross, where my money magically disapeared....
Overall the day was just awesome and the weather was great.
The next day (Thursday April 1st) started out pretty good. I went to have breakfast in Hyde Park this time, where a red robin sat next to me on a bench because it fancied my sandwich. After that I went to the British Museum where I totally geeked out over all the art and history exhibitions. I'm a big fan of Greek and Egyptian history so those exhibitions almost made me loose it in a really geeky, embarasing kind of way.
For the evening I had tickets for a play called Nell Gwynn in the Apollo Theatre, but as the day progressed I felt myself getting ill... By the time the play ended I had a full on fever and I felt absolutely horrendous.
The play was really fun nonetheless. It had kind of a Shakespearean setting and a lovely, witty female lead. I'm very glad that I went.
On Friday I went to Stansted airport to pick up my mom and dad. They came over to visit me in Southwold. I was feeling pretty miserable, but I was really glad to see them.
They stayed over the weekend and in that weekend we went one day to Norwich, where we visited the Norwich Castle Museum and we just went to the beach on a lovely Sunday afternoon.
On Monday I went back to the Netherlands with them for a few days at home and we had the worst luck with the airplane, because it had a two hour delay.
When we finally got home at 2 in the morning I was so happy to see my cat again. I just spend a few days relaxing at home and getting as many cuddles from my mom as possible.
On Friday morning I went back to England again for one evening in London. After that evening I traveled to Canterbury on Saturday to meet up with a group of Pilgrims from Windy Home.
The girls I shared my room with were all really nice and great people. It was nice to be able to spend some time with people who are kind of in the same mind-space and who understand what I'm doing.
On Sunday in Canterbury I first went to the Eucharist in the Cathedral at 11 o'clock. This service wasn't mendatory but I figured I'd go and sing some hymns.
The walk we did on Tuesday was great! I went to Canterbury in my first year as well and the walk didn't go so well then. I was feeling really tired very quickly and I ended up taking a taxi back with some injured people. This time around however the walk went really well and I basically blazed through it, so I guess my stamina has improved :)
The night before it had rained quite a lot so parts of the walk were really muddy, but I'm proud to say I didn't slip once, unlike some others.
Lunch at the pub was really good! and the whole walk we had a lot of sun. My neck got sun-burned to prove it.
On Wednesday we all went to London and from London I went back to Saint Felix. Yesterday was my first full day of teaching again and it was pretty good. It'll be good to get back into the swing of things again.
Yesterday we also had picture day and the whole school came out to be photographed together. As I was waiting to be put somewhere in the picture, one of the boys who I remembered from nursery last year, still somehow remembered me as well. He was waving at me and as I waved back he said to his little friends: "LOOK, THAT'S MY GIRLFRIEND"....
I hadn't really expected that... It was pretty hilarious though. I ended up laughing so much that tears were rolling down my eyes. So I guess I have a 4 year old boyfriend now hahahaha.

I've read your blogs and conclude that although they are very descriptive in nature (mostly listing what you've done), they meet the frequency standards. The thing I seem to be missing is a reference to Pederson. Could you add one more entry describing your Pederson curve? Either online, or in your portfolio.
Did you also read and react to other people's blogs?
