No writing today, sadly. Wasted too much time in the afternoon reading and posting to alt.recovery.clutter.

Letters to the OU students all done and only need posting. Also 2 phone calls made, the ones I thought might be most difficult: firstly to a student who's attempted a couple of courses before and failed and secondly to a woman who was in my tutor group last year on another course. That was a kind of "Hi, it's me again. No, I'm not following you around and I don't tutor all the courses in Wales, honest." She wasn't exactly a troublesome student, just one who liked everything just so, and sometimes, of course, it wasn't. She also complained about lack of activity in the on-line conferences, something over which I have no control. However, the call went fine and she seems happy so far.
