This ennui is partly a result of tiredness and anticlimax after the holiday and partly due to G being in transition back into term time routine. It's also partly due to a lack of certainty as to what (if any) courses I'll be teaching this autumn.
Anyway, we're off to see our son and daughter-in-law tomorrow, so that should perk me up again. It's just a flying visit to see them before the baby is born.
Have I mentioned the impending new grandchild? If not, apologies. I didn't want to say anything in the early stages and later I forgot who I'd told. Anyway, due date is actually in about 10 days time, so the new addition to the family should arrive soon.
