It's just a sticking plaster )

And yet...
- Na'Quis's sports day: the weather was mostly good (I even got a little sunburnt), Na'Quis was proud of her achievements ("I can run really fast!"), and I'm proud of her for going and doing it, even though she'd missed preparing for sports day with her fellow pupils.
- The Marquis and I put up the garden table, and then I spent about two hours cleaning garden furniture and partly cleaning up the shed, until the dust got to me.
- I took Na'Quis with me to a singing lesson. She wants to have her own and I am going to start again. My singing teacher has a new singing room in her garden: it is fantastic. I want one. ;-)
- Just as the sun was setting it peeked out behind the cloud and made the apple blossom on our neighbours tree look the most glorious luminescent pink. It made me want to learn to paint, because on a photo I can never capture that kind of light.
- I can hear the sound of the rain on the patio. The plants will appreciate the water and I like the sound.

Argh!!!!

Whatever they did to the computers at work means that nothing works. I can't get to the library site, I can't print. I can't work like this!

I am distracted and tired and not making much headway with those module guides. Pah!

Bollocks.

I just spend an hour typing this up. Went to copy it to make sure I wouldn't lose it. Hit the wrong key in the process and there is no undo.

Another exceedingly frustrating Friday at work. Had to prepare the stuff for my peer observation on Tuesday and it took all day. As a result I didn't get the lecture for Monday written. And the library didn't close at 7pm like I thought but at 5pm. So I may have to go into work tomorrow again.

I also discovered that Dipsy rewrote the content for the course I am teaching on Mondays without paying attention to the validated course content. The good thing about this is that I don't have to do a lecture on risk taking and adolescence. I think I'll do one on the development of identity instead.

The Marquis fetched me home at about 9pm, which was very nice of him: that way I could load the heavy books on the bike...

Watched Thursdays Six Feet Under which was good and grim as usual.

For reasons I can't fathom, I feel really crap today. Maybe part of it is due to being tired and overworked. Maybe it's because I don't feel like I have a hope of getting out of here this year after all. It feels like my life is on hold again on a number of levels, and when I try to get back on track, something else comes up to throw me off... Like the bit where I have to prepare for peer observation on Tuesday pm, but the Accred. Bollox Visit is on Wednesday. Or the bit where I don't even have the time to do any of the reading I need to do for the course I am taking because I am constantly having to read stuff for the courses I am teaching. I had all these plans for creative things: got new art materials for my birthday and all, want to get on with my story and want to get back to the gym... I need a holiday! And it's only week two of the semester.

Yuck.
