The Mini Clubman officially goes on sale in the U.S. today. Already I’m hearing it referred to as a Mini SUV.
In honour of this momentous occasion, here’s a picture of my late mother circa 1968. I remember taking it. She’d really wanted me to focus on the tree in the foreground that she’d been nurturing for a long time. You may, however, notice her Clubman in the background.
I wish she was here to see the latest version of her favourite car.
We’ve got five now. Even a wireless one in the shed.
John is such a geek.
I’ve now taught eleven Bikram Yoga classes and love it. It’s getting a little easier but I have a long way to go. It’s difficult to focus for 90 minutes without forgetting some of the dialogue. All it takes is for someone to drop a water bottle or bolt from the room or let out a groan, and my concentration waivers. But so far there have been no calamities and no one has got injured (I hope). My largest class was last Sunday at 8 a.m. — 53 students. Beth, Taz and I are currently scheduled to teach two per week each. I have to thank both my bosses here — one for giving me the early morning or weekend classes and the other for not minding if I come into work late.
Anyway, taking the Teacher Training was the right move. Even though I suffered and whined the whole way through it, I’m glad I did it. Life is good!
One of David‘s St. Dunstaners is currently rowing the Atlantic. Alan Lock (27 years old) was discharged from the Navy after losing his sight. He and Matt Boreham (who can see) left Tenerife on Jan 11 and are heading for Antigua. Here’s a link to their website. You can send them a message and/or sponsor them. They are rowing for Sense.
Right now the map looks very scary.
