Nearly there

It's nearly Easter at last! Actually, as it's been an assessment week, I feel like I've caught up a little bit. Oddly, I always find test papers easier to mark than books, which doesn't make sense really as they're bulkier and often take longer. I guess it's that I don't have to write responses or anything so it's mentally less taxing. Anyway, I think reading will be OK and SPAG is fine, but Maths is still looking pretty dire, even though they've made masses of progress since the start of the year. We're going to have to work really intensively on it in the last few weeks before SATS and then hope that all the borderline kids make it, which is a big ask, frankly.

Trug has arrived for the new veg planting, but is only part way through being put together as the drill keeps running out of battery. It is a very old drill, so not that surprising, I guess, but still, annoying. I might need to go and buy some horticultural fleece though as we are apparently forcast more snow over Easter, which is ridiculous! When is it going to get properly warm!

Liz is here for the week, which is really nice - so good to see her again! Managed to just miss crossing over with Niall and Nic but presumably, they'll see eachother at Eastercon so it's nice that we get a bit of time before that :) Also made plans to see Niall and Nic soon, which is nice. Last time we went up, I ended up wondering about staying in Oxford long term. I love this house, but I am a bit bored of Oxford, somehow. Still, we're unlikely to do anything about it while Alex's work is here as well as most of our mates. I guess we'll have to wait until he can get a job at the University of Victoria and make a really radical move!
