Nearly half term!
Just have one more day to survive and then it's half term! :) The students get a week off and I might have chance to catch up.

I am readjusting to having to actually go out to work and teach face-to-face again after five years of teaching online, but I really feel as though I'm on a treadmill. Teaching three courses that I've never taught before means that, although obviously I know the stuff, I don't have lesson plans, handouts or presentations. Everything has to be prepared from scratch.

All other projects have slowed to a crawl. I'm surrounded by unfinished crochet projects that were begun when I had plenty of time to spare and I haven't been working on my Dad's bungalow as much as I wanted to. However, things do progress, albeit slowly.

Anyway, here is an autumnal tree, just on the edge of the college grounds. I snapped it walking home from work last night. I must admit that a commute of 5 minutes walk is a big improvement over the one hour drive I used to have in my last teaching job.

Bummer, isn't it? All this work nonsense... Oh to have the time to enjoy life!!! Hope you get around to sorting out those crochet projects sooner rather than later, and sorry I haven't been keeping up much recently...

Five minutes! And it looks like it is beautiful, too!

Enjoy your holidays! (And also your five minute commute...)
