Five gold rings

Inspired by Pam at Nerd’s Eye View, and because it’s Boxing Day and I’m still too full of food to even contemplate writing a new post just at the moment, I’ve decided to summarise my favourite posts from this past year of blogging. If I could, I’d do this in song, but I haven’t yet worked out how to put sound on here, so you’re just going to have to imagine that part of it. I’m sure my students would have liked that luxury, too. They, however, had to sing the whole thing, with actions. Ah, wouldn’t you have *loved* me as a teacher when you were learning foreign languages at school? (Apologies for the rotten scansion, by the way. This is why I’m an English teacher, not a poet.)
