school update

well I arrived at school last night and was hoping to see the fruits of my labour, but no, Julia did not finish marking all the assignments, so we have to wait another week. I am most anxious to see how I did, but patience is a virtue!

We are going Environmentally Friendly (isn't everyone) next week, with each student having to present a 4-5 page document on an "Eco Friendly Interior Product" - my choice - Cork Flooring, I've sourced some samples and I'm ready to go,and just in case you didn't know, here's a little bit about CORK!

Cork flooring is environmentally friendly and a renewable resource. The cork oak tree is not destroyed when harvested but rather the bark is trimmed from the tree every 9 years, leaving the tree and the forest undamaged. Its not unusual to have a 200 year old tree still producing cork bark. Cork flooring is actually made from the waste of the cork wine stopper manufacturing process, so cork flooring is a recycled product.


  1. I'm sure you'll ace the class :)

  2. hope so - hanging out for our trip away next week - good luck on Saturday - let me know how you go!x
