Mondays off

For a long time now I haven't worked on Mondays. This term I finally disciplined myself into the routine of finishing lesson preparation on other days and having Mondays completely work-free. Nice.

Last Monday I cycled to Cal's place and we strolled over to Ridley Road Market. It was my first visit and I loved it. Much better than battling crowds of trendy people at Borough Market. And the prices! We bought 9 huge mangoes for £2. We weren't after any bushmeat but apparently a whole smoked monkey is just £350.


It seems my days of leisure are over, however. Yesterday my boss at my favourite job asked me to teach an extra three classes next term. I can't wait. It's been ages since I worked under any real pressure and I know that's how I work best.

Congrats on the extra classes! That's really good news!

And the market looks delightful!

What an awesome markets, should check em out. Hmmm not so sure about the whole smoked monkeys though. Do they smoke it with or without the fur?

If it's anything like they do it in the jungles of Burma (as I saw on 'Cooking in the Danger Zone') the fur gets burnt off in the cooking...
