In the meantime, this is the day, in all its glory, so far: Got down to serious marking just after the dawn prayer, with half of the final set of IB scripts left. (Cleared these about an hour ago.) Exchanged anniversary cards with the missus over cereal and lovely hot tea. Definitely the highlight of the day. Accompanying music: Bach's Brandenburg 4. In between scripts kept dipping into Fitzgerald's Tender Is The Night which I'm starting to make serious progress with after getting nowhere for the last week or so; this was supplemented by The Sunday Times, the highlight of which was, as usual, the cartoons. Also listened to Los Lobos's Kiko and was reminded of what great songs are on it, but not so convinced of Mitchell Froom's production as I used to be. Went to wedding of Rohana's eldest brother's youngest daughter. Nice reminder of how I happily sealed my fate all those years ago, but very hot there.. Then got back and completed the marking (as above.)
All fairly mundane stuff, but I'll settle for it.
