Day 137 May 16th 2016

It rained today. I mean it really rained. Not just a shower but full on stair rods, cats and dogs, persisting, really persisting, it bucketed down, estaba lloviendo a cántaros, il pleuvait des cordes, il pleuvait des seaux d’eau… and there was thunder and lightning. I love storms, real ones, especially when I’m safe and warm inside. But I have been known just to stand out in the rain and let the sweet rain drench me.  The best storms we ever watched were from our tent in the Jura, France. Violent and beautiful and terrible electrical storms, everyday for two weeks mid afternoon.  Forked lightning that split the sky.  Cleared the air, freshened the atmosphere and left us to an evening  under the stars and two highly charged children!  We had a narrow escape too…but that’s another story.
Anyway, I took some video of the lightning lightening the sky…and Aonghas practising his guitar.



Teacher of Languages first and foremost but passionate about learning and teaching. I have been learning how to blend technology into my teaching for the last twenty years and worked for seven years supporting colleagues to build their skills and confidence using digital technologies as part of their teaching and learning. In 2014 I was honoured to be awarded an eFellowship from Core Education which was a challenging and fun year. I am now a Connected Learning Advisor with Core Education. In that role I support school leaders in their planning and implementation of technology. I love being in the outdoors and spend as much of my time as I can in the bush, by the ocean and on mountains.
