It’s Friday evening, and apart from going to have my rather ancient car have its 2-year test (it will fail) tonight, I’m unexpectedly free.
Well, freer than I thought I would be. I was to have given a talk tomorrow at the University Day, but the whole thing has been called off because we have an outbreak of mumps (or as we like to call it: the mumps)!
10,000 potential students had to be contacted today to tell them it’s all off and apparently isn’t going to be rescheduled.
So, I can have a sleep in! Yay! This is a bit sad because we had written to almost 350 people with disabilities who might be coming next September and we were looking forward to having a chat with them.
Odd. I wrote that last sentence and realised that I really like my job.
Still, sleep in is good too.
