Teaching is a wonderful and often challenging job and one that can be full of contrasts.
To get round to reading some Sarah Waters?
As part of my much needed study-tidy which I mentioned previously I have sorted out my ‘to-be-read’ book pile and they are all neatly stacked on a shelf.
This is quite a manageable pile for me but as I have a dozen books on their way to me from Amazon for some summer courses I am teaching I’m not altogether sure how much of an inroad I am likely to make anytime soon.
Still, they are not going anywhere so as and when …
Of the football.
For three years and 11 months OH can be largely indifferent to the appeal of 22 men kicking a ball around a pitch but the World Cup – woo hoo!
Who knew that seven matches over one weekend could be so captivating.
I didn’t – and still don’t.
And it’s really only just started – another month of this?! My sanity…
For the most part I am happy being a one TV household but this weekend made me rethink that a little.
Still my study is looking very tidy and I got lots of reading done so it is a win – win really.
Anybody else wishing football had never been invented?
I do love a bit of luck in the charity shop.
I had to do a little bit of book shopping yesterday…
Among the various module outlines I have had accepted for the coming academic year is one on ‘The Golden Age of Crime Fiction’.
