State of the deadlines -- the end is in sight!

I have now finished critting all the little stories. I had hoped to have them finished a couple of days ago, but they are done now. I would have finished yesterday, but we went out looking for Aztec ruins in the Amazon rain forest the remains of a slate mine and surface buildings in a Welsh forest, so by the time we got back, I was tired.

All I have to do now is complete the final creative writing assignment by Wednesday so it can be posted on Thursday.

I may be able to finish one or two of the BA Education assignments too, which just leaves the numeracy research to complete over the summer and submit in September.

  • Gardening and reading

    I didn't sleep well last night. I woke up at 1.30 a.m. feeling very shivery (a reaction to the flu jab I had yesterday). I then slept for a bit but…
