    Pointless Question of the Week #5

    Sorry about the delay in writing this week's PQOTW (I know many of you have lost sleep as a result) but I have been away on a residential trip with the school for the past week.

    Every year we take 44 eleven year olds to Whitby to show them what hills and sandy beaches are like (both of which are quite rare here in Suffolk). I love Whitby and could happily see myself spending a happy life time there. Which brings me to this week's question:

    Where in the world is your spiritual home?

    “I have been away on a residential trip with the school for the past week.”
    Wait I thought everyone around here are IT techs or along those lines. You mean they let you out the office! Did you find some dirt on a Teachers or heads laptop? How did you pull that one off.

    I went on the "Whitby Trip" before I was employed by the school - and so I am considered one of the experienced members of staff that go on the trip. Also, the person who organises it happens to be my Mum. I guess I'm just lucky.

    Although my mobile phone was used quite a lot on the trip between my technician and I. I couldn't escape!

    West Penwith (-Grockels*).

    If you don't know where that is, keep going south-west, once you fall off a cliff into the Atlantic, you've gone too far; but only just!

    * Grockels = Emmets*

    * Emmets = Ants

    You see them all over the place stuffing up the roads, towing caravans, often with hopelessly underpowered cars, wearing flat caps & smoking pipes. :sad4:

    My manager has been trying to get me to go on a residential trip. I don't think it would be practical though, as I'm the only IT tech in the school.

    Honest truth, I don't know. I've travelled a little and but haven't seen anywhere where I'd want to spend my days although Sweden came close.

    Canada and Australia appeal massively to me but I've never been to either so it'd probably turn out that I'd end up hating them
