Daily Prompt: ‘Teacher’s Pet’

Tell us about a teacher who had a real impact on your life, either for the better or the worse. How is your life different today because of him or her?

When I first read today’s daily prompt, I immediately thought of two teachers (plus a third) from school who have had a positive impact on my life and, erm, what’s another word for ‘growing’?

I therefore feel it would be unfair and, perhaps too personal (don’t read too far in to that!) to write this about just one man (I’m struggling to think of a female who’s had the same affect throughout education).

Writing Challenge: ‘Map It Out’

In an effort to keep the content flowing on this blog even without the regular passing of wood, I’m going to try my hand at some of the writing challenges that the kind folks at WordPress kindly lend us for inspiration.

This one’s specifically a writing challenge and they regularly feature others on a daily basis too. They also include at least one photo challenge each week, if that fits in better with your creativity.

Today, I’m going to ‘map out’ the locations of some of the solo walks I have enjoyed in 2012. They’re all fairly local so, you might get an idea of where I live. Unfortunately, I’m currently unable to embed an image of the map on this site (anyone?) so, for the time being at least, you’ll have to click here please to be redirected to Google Maps.

In time, I also hope to be able to share some of the may photos I have taken with you (I’m a bad blogger…). I was thinking about posting a list of each place with an accompanying image but, after a first Monday back at work, I’m too tired… 😛

Thank you.
