Return Of The Mac...

I am safely back at the keyboard, and have recovered from the acute withdrawal syndrome I had been experiencing while at Woldingham School for the Faith Summer Session.

The school is in a sort of dip in the valley. This means that mobile phones don't work (bye bye, Facebook) and there are no Wi-fi hotspots (even if I had a laptop with the relevant capability, so adios Blogger!) I did manage to locate a computer which was set up for the internet, and after much wheedling was allowed to use it - but the school network blocked any site with "blog" as part of the URL... which put the kybosh on accessing any blogspot sites. I was intrigued to note that "wordpress" blogs didn't get blocked... I may need to give my blog location a little thought!

At the start of the Session, I asked Fr. Tim if he would let me know if he found a computer available for use. He told me that it was every blogger for himself...

The Session itself was really good. I bought copies of the talks on CD (you'll be able to order them through the Faith website shortly) so that I can listen to them again and digest all the information. The best part of the Session is, however, making new friends and meeting old ones. I'll post some more about the Conference later, along with a few photos. Here's a photo of the whole group (minus a few people who had to leave early... oh, and me, because I hate photos, and usually hide in the chapel at this point!)

The school's Head of IT might decide that adding "wordpress" to his blacklist might be advisable. You really don't want kids at school able to blog from the school network ...

Good to have you back though.

Spoilsport... I don't see what's wrong with a bit of blogging in one's spare time (it's a boarding school, so it seems rather mean!)
