I’m stitching working minutes together this week: there’ll be fifteen minutes while Aurora pretends to be a baby tiger, half an hour while she plays with her LeapPad, an hour while she plays with lego, forty-two minutes while she’s outside, before it starts raining, an afternoon while she’s with my mum and a few hours while she’s at a friend’s house. It works suprisingly well, now that she’s seven, though five days will be about all I can take. I’ve used up my five weeks holiday for this year and I’m actually kind of enjoying starting work again. My main job for the next couple of weeks will be preparing teaching for the semester. Better get started.
