Otherwise the room is very quiet. The music from outside has stopped. The music was (I think) Turkish, rhythmic, vibrant drum and some sort of wind instrument. I suspect they're practising for the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, which is on this week. We have parties of people staying at our college over the summer. When the full-time residential students have finished, the student hostel is been turned over to guest accommodation. We get quite a few parties of European students over here to learn English (which is slightly ironic, seeing as it's a Welsh speaking area).
It's a beautiful summer's day outside and I'm stuck inside. I'm going to leave early today because I need to get back home to pick up my new glasses from the opticians; but I still won't be able to go out to enjoy the nice weather as I have some marking to finish for my other job (Open University tutor).
