Catch Up Cafe Pt. 3

Tags: Off Topic;content
Just in case folks would like to check out the previous posts, that's the link to Catch Up Cafe Pt.2. After mentioning the first of the week that I should start a new Cafe thread, I thought I had better keep my word.

So what's with this winter stuff eh? Have I mentioned how much I dislike winter? It's all cold and snowy and stuff...geesh.... I do admit though, at least it's not as cold as it was last week, we were hitting -33C some nights. There were a couple days when the kids couldn't even play outside during recess and lunchtime.

Wow, it's almost the end of January too eh. Where's the time going? I'll be glad to get back to work, I'm starting to get a tad bored...and I can seriously only do so much housework . I might have to start irritating some

Anyway, hope everyone has had a good week! :)

Cold here as well... actually, right now we're having a warm spell.
Everything is still hip-deep in snow and ice, though. I'm just hoping the roof will hold up...
So, catchup: I have a new job. I'll be organizing and running extracurricular english-training clubs at local schools! I've turned over the information materials to the schools, and now I just have to wait for the enrolments to start.
It's going to be a challenge to make a schedule to fit everybody, but I guess I'll just have to make it work!

The earful of English you get on TR should hold you in good stead.

except I'll be wanting to encourage them to speak out, not render them catatonic

I'm sure my employer will be happy to franchise
Bit of a long commute for me, at the moment...

I'm not sure what it is

by NickNielsen In reply to brrr

but I've had enough of winter this year, too.

I think it's because it's been unusually cold down here this year. Today is another shirt-sleeve day, but today and yesterday are the first consecutive such days I remember since back in November.

wasn't a bad day today, the sun even shone (is that a proper word) for a while. We made it to all of 0C . It's not that it's been abnormally cold up here, we've just become so accustomed to not much snow and not much cold that we're a bit spoiled . My biggest beef is all the wind; it's been windier than most years that I recall in my 40+ yrs

Oh, you gave me a good laugh!

Thank you! I needed that. The weather in NJ is the pits this year and I was getting depressed. We are going on our 8th snowstorm in a month this week. There is so much snow it is almost waist deep in my yard. I hope this isn't the new normal.
