Pauline failed a Health and Safety course at the Senior Centre today.

One of the questions was: "In the event of a fire, what steps would you take?"

"F***ing big ones" was apparently the wrong answer.

So Mrs Pip despite pregnancy has been busy and has gotten approval from the Classics Academic council to write a Classics text book for Junior and senior secondary school cycles in Ireland . Now shes just waiting for the final approval from the Classics teacher association (who have informally guaranteed it) to start work on it with her friend. Fun way to spend maternity leave .
I'll be working on the pictures , maps etc and some of the writing for my specialities in Mapping , empires and the likes. Could be fun . :D I'll be the underling in it all with them having masters, hdips and PHDS and the likes in the subject :roll: I decided to ditch the classics after degree and do post grad in something that could get a job :D
