On numerous occasions I've tried to phone round a class, either to tell the students that a class is going ahead or that it's had to be cancelled for some reason, only to find none of them at home. But that was on a weekday, from work. This time I only discovered on Friday afternoon that there were sufficient numbers for the class to run, and at the time I didn't have the energy to start phoning people. Besides, I was finishing off the materials for the Starting Out With Computers class and making them up into a tutor pack for a colleague who is teaching the same class.
So I decided to put it off to the weekend, which actually worked out very well. I managed to speak to all but one and I've left a message on her answerphone.
So that was one useful thing done and I even managed some exercise too. Just a walk around into town and back via the river and then on past the turning to our house to carry on along the old railway line for a bit before finally turning for home.
The light was strangely grey and flat, even though there really wasn't any cloud and the air was chilly, but quite still, so not too cold for walking. I decided, as I walked, to set myself the target of getting fit enough to climb Cadair Idris again at Easter. (Probably the weekend before Easter, weather permitting, because it will be like Picadilly Circus up there on the Easter weekend itself.) As I'm not going to Eastercon this year, that will be a nice goal to aim for.
