Not quite Pavlov's dogs!!

Thought I would add this link for anyone to browse if they wished!! Although not in relation to children, it does show the link to conditioning animals by reward, in this case honey bees to detect bombs. Couldn't get The Telegraph link to work but found the same story under the url below. Slightly biased as it was my brother in law that did the research and my father in law that provided the bees!!!!!!

Reached my 'dip'

Well, I knew it would arrive sooner or later and here it is, the feeling that everything is piling on ttop of me. Thanks to a good chinwag today at break time and a mini chocolate cake from Dave (Happy Birthday!), it made me realise things can only get better - so onwards and upwards!

Getting there!

It's the end of the third week and I'm finally getting to grips with what's expected of us and the way we should be studying (I think!) and I can now move forward with Lin and Rachel's assignments. Have received in the post this week the Sociology "bible" and 'The Invention of Childhood' (only £3.79 on Amazon if anybody is interested in getting it!) all on Jen's recommendation from her talk last week - very inspiring:) Enjoyed the trip to Warwick this week and it hit home that I am actually a University degree student.

Oh well, back to the coffee and do a little more research (what else would I be doing on a Friday night!).
