The most exciting thing today was the delivery – expeditiously, effectively, efficiently on time, with 15 minutes to install and brief me by Andrew of HomeOrganics. This young man has a philosophy I can live with – veggie gardening should not add to your chores – and not interfere with texting or sitting on the porch enjoyment. That’s a recipe for business success if ever I heard one.
How lovely do they look?
Other doings were: I reviewed a journal article for HERD (and considered reactivating my associate editor status – which I temporarily suspended when I got my diagnosis), read Nalini’s article for FAC – it’s going to be splendid and maybe the start of a D, Nalini? I managed to connect the dots in terms of funding for the travel arrangements of our Transforming Educational Studies workshop in March thanks largely to the ever supportive and effective, Shubs. And finished upgrading my pc – it’s amazing how one gets to know one’s own machine – and how one takes for granted the programmes that one has accumulated. I went though 41 Gbs of data and programmes deciding on whether to chuck or keep them. I hope I haven’t deleted anything important! Housekeeping.
I now just have to remember my DUT password – chemo brain seems to have deleted it from my consciousness. Fortumately, my iPad seems to download work email without the security settings so I’m still in touch. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that but I did think maybe Vijay might want to know that tablets have different security abilities to PCs.
Adrian and Cynthia did a fabulous job of plastering the previous holes in the wall from the removal of the old airconditioners.
And lastly, I walked about a km with Pepper, very slowly, wearing my 1kg ankle weights. This in the effort to build up my leg strength. I was knackered when we got back. Strangely the extra weight on my ankles made me feel more stable and my knees were less wobbly.
Are you having fun yet?
