Sensei's Pet

Whee. I scooped my class's Kenshukai Karate Student of the Month award for January. (Do I get CV points for that?)

Actually I am 'Female Student of the Month', but that just sounds dodgy.

I am deeply chuffed despite our instructor's claims that he's only giving the award out because of directives from Head Office and makes up his mind who's won on the morning of the class.

As the certificate is laminated I even believe my name was on it before I handed over my attendance fee for the extra three-hour class on Sunday.

When I came out of the class at just gone nine my scooter saddle was iced over. Which is not nice when you're wearing thin cotton karate trews.
