Made me a very dull girl. In a moment of madness I agreed to teach an Easter holiday revision course. The college I tutor for asked me last year and it seemed so far off that I said yes. Fast forward to the start of last week and having already spent hours preparing, I was up at 6.30 and ready to go. My days finished at 5 pm and then after getting home I spent all evening working. On the bright side, last week’s class of 18 year olds were lovely, a really nice bunch of students.
By Friday evening I was exhausted but luckily the very insightful Philip had booked a restaurant and after a relaxing evening out I definitely felt a bit chirpier.
Yesterday I altered a couple of basic and basicly tiny tee shirts. They came into my possession destined to become polishing cloths but brand new so it seemed a shame. I cut up the sides, added some fabric, a broderie anglaise edge to the black one and now both are serviceable. They will be fine for work anyway. It felt good not to just cut them up.
After finishing that, spending time in the garden and relaxing for most of the day, I felt a bit more energetic today so got up and went swimming.
The weather both yesterday and today is very summery, so after lunch we wandered into town for coffee. The river was packed and there was a real holiday atmosphere, lots of people are here for a spring break. I love it at this time of year so I stopped to take a photo.
This evening a few glasses of wine and a nice meal will round off a relaxing couple of days.
I can’t wait to get back to normal. Two years worth of subject material covered in a week is a bit mind boggling and I much prefer the more leisurely pace of life I’m used to!
Whatever you’re up to this week, have a nice one.
