I've got the Whirls all to myself

Nothing much to report, I managed somehow to avoid things that make my blood boil. Well almost, the bin men of course still manage to arrive before 6am on the morning after the night before when I forget to put the rubbish out. So, I can look forward to queuing at the local tip on Saturday morning.

Got to work early as usual and finished off the lecture prep for the afternoon’s 3rd years then spent most of the morning installing software on a number of workstations. I solved a problem with the BIOS that had been bothering me for a while so that made me feel good. The best thing though was that I got to use the Dymo machine – no traditional manual job like I remember from days of yore but a swanky terminal that was more like a fax machine – a real time saver.

Loads of colleagues were getting hot under the collar becasue a deadline for some admin was looming and the main photocopier spotted this and decided to jam, clear, jam, clear etc. Are electronic devices sentient?

The lecture this* evening!* – I’ve got lectures 2 days a week that finish at 6pm thats just not fair! – seemed to go well. The students caught me out, turning up in greater numbers than usual – am I engaging them? perhaps not: they had a project safety briefing at 6 so I’m guessing they just couldn’t be bothered to go home in the interim.

Stopped off at Sainsbury’s on the way home and got some cheap/reduced Raisin Whirls, chose carefully the ones with the most icing on them – Mmmm.

Got home in time to see MDW off for her Yoga class, now I’ve got the Whirls all to myself!
