Hi,  I’m really looking forward to it, especially the dancing!  Like Trish I had such a good experience last year I’m a little worried it won’t live up to expectations, though as it’s the TA world I’m sure it will.  I’ll be blogging through the weekend… I’m going to work on it being a kind of public diary of the event. I’m hoping that others will contribute plenty!

To get us going, how about this from Louise Robinson?

‘Ode to a TA Conference’ by Louise Robinson

Laughter and learning
Midnight oil burning
Dance floor gyrating
Working with rackets,scripts and impasses
I must concentrate
And take loads of classes.
If I join conference geeks
I can learn new techniques
I shall stay out of trouble
….but make mine a double!!

Thank you Louise for your excellent poem!

Some more pre-conference thoughts from the Ellesmere Centre contingent

Ben Wright – I’m just excited!  All packed and an early night planned.

Louise Mowthorpe – I’m in indecisiveness mode, what to wear, how many pairs of shoes should I take, what snacks to take!

Trish Gillie – I’m really looking forward to it, my main concern is that I won’t enjoy it as much as last year.
