Adur momentHey, all. I’m on an unexpected Christmas keyboard break, which is why silence has fallen around here. My wife has a huge pile of marking to get through (although, given how much university marking is digital these days, I only have her word for that, not a huge pile of scripts on her desk…), and so I’ve been on pretty much full-time daddy duty with a daughter who has just figured out how this walking thing works.

I’m quite tired, as you can imagine.

I’m even more happy, as I’m sure many of you can imagine as well.

It’s been a nice antidote to the difficult events of earlier this month, and I feel like I’m on the road to recovery. A few more afternoons rampaging on Shoreham Beach should complete that journey…

See you all in the New Year!
