I’m a socialist. I will always be a socialist. I’m not one of those people who complains about helping immigrants…even though my parents were immigrants. That will always bewilder me! No matter how high you have climbed or how high you started, it’s important to help those around you. You get the Arthur Birlings who… Continue reading I’m a socialist!
I don’t really like to open up about really personal things. When there is an issue, I keep it to myself or tell people that are close to me.

However, after thinking about it for some days, I realised that I… Continue reading Why am I limiting myself?
There have been a number of times when I’ve told myself that I’d like to take a break from teaching. I’ve refrained from doing so because I’ve felt that there was nothing else to do. At the moment, I’m spending hours travelling to and from work. Although I love my job; the kids are brilliant… Continue reading Time to leap?
