Jayho, I love all of those songs, especially the Paul Simon one! Did anyone notice my cat shoes??? Students always love them. 

Monique, great poem, and so true, a new pair of shoes is always a treat. As my husband complains about me, see shop, buy shoes . LOL

wow! Lynne! such an interesting article! and by the way i love your shoes! I used to have dozens pairs of shoes, but like you, I always wear trainers or sometimes boots, plain ones, so I gave away mostly all of them to charity. Crazy me! 😵
Monique  love the song also, I didn t know that singer, now I do!
Have a wonderful summer time all of you!

Hello cafe people! 
Haven t been here for a while... it s such a sad news about Frank... 
Has anyone got a link to an e-book against bullying that Frank put together as a collab of eslprintables teachers a while ago? I would appreciate if someone could share it with me...

Sorry, ladies, I m intruding in your summer-themed conversation.

I have completed my month at the summer school. Never have I worked so hard, but I have made a few good friends. The students were great. It seemed to last a lifetime, but it is over so quickly! I could sleep on a bed of nails, but instead of a hard, high, narrow bed, I have a soft, luxury zzzzzzzzzzz.....

Wow, so few messages here. Is this cafe closed, being renovated or bankrupt? Is there a newer or hipper place nowadays?

First of all, PhilipR, thank you for your amazing output. At my summer school (Millfield), I sent the link to your Let s talk about series to all my colleagues, I mean, they are just so useful. 
But... how many posts have you made on here in the last twelve months, and how many has your friend? Just asking. If we don t use this facility, we have only ourselves to blame.

Edit: And still, nobody wants to see my pot cats. Ive got hurt feelings now. Cry ;-)))

I do Lynne!! And you are right that if we don t post anything here, the guilty party would be only us. I even forgot to come here to read, and I just have realised I got an answer from EstherLee76. Just wanna say hello to Esther and sorry for not replying to you sooner, I ll try to stick around more often...

Well done, Aisha! By the way, your worksheets are fantabulous, Thumbs Up(that is a word made up by Jayho), off the scale of wonderful! Any chance of a tutorial as to how to make such great templates? 
Right! I will get a nice piccy of my pot cats, this will encourage me to dust them. I used to have a cleaner and she took such pride in dusting them. She used to polish my wine glass as well.Big smile I miss her, I do! 

I think the issue on here is that there used to be a group who messaged each other and posted nice things, but they have moved on. On top of that, there is more chat and informality on the main forum. I have been enjoying facebook for the last few weeks, but I might move back on here with my chit chat. I ll have to see how hard it is to post photos; previously my son or husband has done it for me. It s easy posting photos on fb, but I m not sure about here. I will find out!

You know? I never said anything but among all animals I love cats, since I can remember, I feel like a cat myself (the way I am), like I need to be loved, but I am really independent in my manners and way of thinking, hehheh!
I am looking forward to see pics of your cats. 
About a tutorial, if you mean a worksheet, I might give it a try, don t really know how I can explain all I do, but I will try it... I hope I can do it and mainly it is useful, heheeh... I have learnt all these things thanks to this site, wondering how others where doing things and, like you, I didn t even know how to resize the photos, and look how we manage now. LOL Well, as I said, I will be delighted to see your lovely cats.
Aisha ;)

Hello, everybody!

So missed all of you. Sorry to have been away for so long - am so glad to still see some names I remember.It s been a difficult year for everyone, I know.

Just a brief excuse note for my absence - aneurysm burst in my brain last October and I was almost completely blind up until mid August when one eye was operated on, then in mid September my right eye.

Tried to keep in touch with those of you who sent emails or contacted me on fb or instagram - my husband was a patient angel who read me your messages and then typed my replies as I dictated. Not been teaching, of course. Missed it, of course. Not published any new books, but have plenty of notebooks filled with texts, lectures and stories, some to be deciphered, some not as I wrote text over text or both languages one over the other, or my pen ran out of ink and I only realized a few pages later so there is now an intro and an ending, but the middle is just blank or scribbles.

Just happy to have made it out alive, literally. Getting much better, not working yet, sadly missed meeting Mariethe who passed through Croatia not so long ago (me recuperating fresh from surgery, so could not travel), missed a lot of things, both good and bad, but hey - I m still here.

Will try to pop in every now and then. Glad to see you still in the teaching trenches - happy World Teachers Day, which was yesterday.

Hugs to all,
Anita

PS: Love the shoes!!!! Got a pair of gold-painted sneakers from some friends while I was recuperating, but no pic - have to remind myself how to post an image here;). Give me some time, pls.

Just a little motivation on this dreary autumn morning. I don t know about you, but it s been raining for days here.

Always believe in miracles. After all, you are one.

What s everybody doing these days? Not work-wise:). Any interesting hobbies, challenging activities, anything new in your life you d like to share?
Here is what people do when they have extra time on their hands...



Me, I ve been writing books for several years now, as some of you know. Never been much of a bungee-jumping type:). I think I d only try that if I had to save someone s life. I m currently writing riddles for my daughter s teacher - they are covering a book my daughter and I found interesting (a Croatian one), funny and educational and it was the first thing I was able to somewhat read with her after a while, after my eye surgery when vision was more-or-less restored. Feels strange to write riddles in my own tongue, after having been writing and Croatian teaching materials in English for decades. It s not quite a hobby, but helps me keep my brain active while on sick leave.

Dropped by to serve some coffee for everyone. If anyone is in the mood for cookies, pls do make some - I m very partial to anything with cinnamon:)

Well hello the guys who have posted on here! Dear Anitarobi, it s lovely to see you back and sorry to hear about what you ve been through. I am not too good at the moment. If I get sorted, I promise myself a world tour. 
In the meantime, I have always fancied a hobby horse. I live on a country lane with three riding stables and people are always up and down on their horses. Wouldn t it be hilarious if I, a short, sensible looking bespectacled matron, went trotting up there on my hobby horse? LOLLOLLOL I m gonna get one!
