Weekly round up

Sorry if I've been a bit quiet. The day job has been averagely busy, but it was changeover week for the fiction writing course so I had the Feb group to say farewell to and the new May bunch to welcome. I still have most of the Feb final assignments to mark, but I will plod through a couple of these today and finish the rest next weekend.

Also I have started a new course as a student. *g* T189 Digital Photography is the first Open University photography course and it's totally done online. It doesn't actually start officially until tomorrow, but knowing how I tend to be mugged by Life[TM], I always like to get ahead at the beginning. I'm thus about half way through the week 1 work.

Adendum to post about last week

It was a week of forgetting things.

I drove into work last Tuesday and just as I was climbing out of the car I realised that I'd forgotten the Welsh book for my class that afternoon. But it was OK, I shared my neighbour's book.

Then on Thursday, I forgot my computer glasses. I managed to leave them on the computer desk at home. This was especially frustrating as it was a day without any classes to teach, so I needed to spend all day on the computer. But I managed by enlarging the fonts and squinting through my bifocals.

Though traditionally things happen in 3s, I made it to the end of the week without forgetting anything else. *g*

And one thing I found (courtesy of sciamanna was this. I'm sure you've all seen them by now, but I thought they were stunning. Clever and insightful and very skilfully done. I hate art that's all concept without any skill in the execution. It appears that a full size version of one piece is in Walsall -- which of course is where Novacon is in November. Must try to remember to visit the gallery.
