Today has been a bit of a non-day! I’ve simply just been working! Unusually it was a uni day as we had planned to take the students on a trip today but because very few of them showed up on Tuesday we decided to postpone today’s trip to the new academic year in September.
A day of marking instead for me which was challenging and enjoyable in equal measures, I love reading the student’s work but, at times my dyslexic brain struggles to understand what they are trying to say so I sometimes I have to read their work 2 or 3 times until understanding it. I didn’t mark as many as I would have liked so that’s a job for tomorrow!
The one exciting thing to happen is that I managed to secure my venue for an event I’m running later this year so now the hard work starts in planning it all so that it happens as I want it to.
Got home in pretty good time, made some food AKA heated some food I had in the fridge up and have sat on the sofa all evening! It was utter bliss, I’m not one for doing this very often as I just get bored but a new series of Silent Witness (For non-British readers, Slient Witness is a long-running drama programme revolving around a pathology unit), it’s one of my favourite programmes as I love science but also has the drama and suspense to keep me gripped for the full 2 x 1hr episodes – not many programmes can do this!
Still, no gym this week as my knee is getting better but I’m not risking going back until it’s fully better as well as understanding what is causing me to pull the muscle so that I can avoid doing it again in the future.
