Sure the weather's getting colder, but autumn and winter have lots of good things - and Gav's class is one of them!

The head-wobble is an odd habit, I know - but I'm not even aware it's happening so it's a bit difficult to stop it. I hope it's not too distracting.

I notice that I'm also wearing my emergency least favourite reading glasses. They could also put people off, but I can at least promise to try to avoid wearing them in future.
