  6. I really enjoyed my athletics ,especially at Notts AC and at uni. The biggest problem about Saturday sport was the " Saturday job " which kicked in around 14 and funded my dungeon/ beachcomber/ boat club habit ..... During the winter I was quite happy to give up netball and hockey teams but come summer the sound of the starting gun and the roar of the crowd ( well 3 men and a dog ) would make me ask woolworths for a " career break " till September

  20. Gosh that brings back memories Jill .....teaching practice !!!!!! the lecturers assigned to watching you perform miracles in the classroom ( one of mine had 52 pupils in ) were failed teachers who were in no way equipped to help you through those stressful weeks . My first practice was a comprehensive in Bury town centre, second one a primary school in pendlebury Lancs and the third Moss side in Manchester .......
