Comment on The Accidental Diet by Jennie Reid.
I've never been good at counting calories or GI. I think this works for me because of the low sugar content. I also have a theory that the more foods are processed, the worse they are for your metabolism. On this basis I eat the odd chocolate eclair - cream, choux pastry, a little chocolate are fine, as long as I don't eat them every day.
I also don't believe fat makes you fat. Cows get fat and they eat grass all day, which is carbs. So I have butter, cream and cheese and food fried in olive oil or butter.

I agree I didn't see the rougher areas, but I found English children overall to be much quieter than Australian kids. I suspect spending more time indoors is a contributing factor as well.
I've only travelled with kids within Australia unfortunately. The only thing I can say is to take lots of your own food, and shop at supermarkets for snacks, not cafes. And kids seem to enjoy camping!

I doubt if I will teach either, but CELTA left me with a deep understanding of the English language, and had a huge effect on my writing. J K Rowling taught ESL! And of course, CELTA left me with some wonderful friends too.
Last Week in Ireland…
If you can get YouTube, find Every Irish Wedding Ever. It's like Dimboola, with Irish accents. I had tears rolling down my face, I was laughing so hard I thought I would choke.
