Am now sitting in an eerily quiet house. Feel a bit of a fraud. Here's what I've done so far today:
Started this morning by marking a pile of tests, preparing work for my classes tomorrow and e-mailing it into school. Got a bit waylaid making an avatar of myself, but convinced myself it's all part of developing my IT skills:
Then ventured to the local library; no danger of having to use my voice there. Love the library. The amount of chick lit I get through means that I save approx £260 a year by borrowing rather than buying. I see this as a £260 rebate on my Council Tax (just how to claw back the rest?)
Aside: I do also read serious books (currently also reading 'One to Nine' by Andrew Hodges - a heavyweight book about Mathematics - one day I will reveal my other identity), but mostly when I flop into bed I just want a couple of chapters of amusing, entertaining fluff.
After library I cleaned daughter's bedroom, mainly because it is my favourite room in the house. Got a bit waylaid playing with the Mr Potato Head. Figure I shouldn't clean any more as I am ill and doctor said to rest. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
Settled down with a nice cup of tea to watch an episode of 'Lark Rise to Candleford'. Fantastic new digital freeview recorder thingy has recorded the entire series for me - just have to find time to watch it. Got a bit waylaid by 'Loose Women' - no, no, mustn't get dragged into daytime TV twilight zone!
Now updating blog, might just have a look at some other sites while I'm logged on.................
