End of first UK week

Now in Newcastle, where I did a workshop with a class of kids who are doing a steampunk project, building an old-fashioned-y steam-age construction. Such a treat to talk to converts!

While I was doing schools in Scotland, I learned one important lesson – don’t talk about my early life growing up in ENGLAND. (Or at least, don’t mention that it was in England.) There’s no great love of the English in Scotland, ever since the days of Maggie Thatcher. (I can understand why.)

The weather has turned sunny after a cloudy morning. Not warm, exactly, but really pleasant. A sort of brisk summeriness.

Right now I’m borrowing the computer at the hotel reception desk, no way can I do more than a brief  blogette.
