….general wonderings….

Already a few days into the final week of the Easter holidays and you will not be surprised to hear that I haven't touched one iota of schoolwork. In fact I've done everything except schoolwork. It is amazing how much you can get done to avoid marking:

  • Sorted out garage – there is still absolutely no chance whatsoever of getting a car in there – but at least now there's a path through all the crap to get to the back.
  • Mowed the grass – a couple of dry days and some sunshine resulted in the first cut of the year.
  • Fixed fence – windy conditions resulted in a snapped post. So after digging up most of Lincolnshire I managed to finally remove a huge lump of concrete that had been used to hold up post. I am now slightly worried I have also dug up a big percentage of the foundations.
  • Made a visit to the tip household recycling centre – gone are the days when you reversed up to a massive hole and slung in all your crap – now you need a PhD – old Hoover? Appliances or small electrical? I glanced at 'small electrical' and could only see old car radios, so plumbed for 'appliances' – WRONG! Two seconds after placing it down…. “That doesn't go there mate!”
  • Went to running club training Tuesday AND Thursday – which is something that happens very rarely. Tuesday was 20 x 1 min fast/slow and Thursday was a very fast 2 mile time trial.
  • Watched 'Inception' – good film – although I am not about to try to explain it – I'm not entirely sure myself – was it all a dream or not?
  • Read 'Pigeon English' by Stephen Kelman – this book has been on my reading list for a while – it follows a young immigrant from Ghana as he grows up on an estate in South London – good book.
  • Just started reading 'The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry' by Rachel Joyce – so far so good.

You'll also notice that this post severely lacking in pictures. This is because of the whole 'One Second Everyday' shenanigans. Although I have found a picture of a giant dog wearing a sombrero….

  1. Wow! Seems like I`ve had a very similar Easter Break to you! I teach too and yes, did EVERTHING to avoid school work over the holidays. Sigh. Also started to watch Inception. And the book my bookclub have chosen to read for our next meeting was decided on tonight. Yep, it The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry.Hope it`s good, or I`ll do everything to avoid reading it too!

    1. I read ‘The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared’ – which is absolutely fantastic – and this book is in the same vein. I think my avoidance of any work will carry on for a few days yet!

  2. I went to the tip this week and managed to throw a pillow in the garden waste I am still waiting for a knock on the door! Well done on all those jobs and for avoiding school work it is the holidays after all.
