Because it was a technical photo-editing challenge, we were allowed to use old photos. In fact, I took the photo of toy Yoda yesterday and then added him to a photo from last year's trip to South Korea.

In other news, apologies for the long silence, but because we were away in Oxford last weekend, every spare moment during the week was taken up with lesson preparation. This was not helped by me being given another bunch of students who need to re-sit the GCSE English.

I have started to catch up this weekend, but I keep thinking, "I used to work full-time, prepare lessons, feed a family and keep the house reasonably clean and tidy, so how come it's taking me all my time to cope with 10 contact hours?" I'm hoping that it's just a case of being out of practice and having to prepare all the lessons from scratch because the courses are new to me rather than a sign of old age. :(
