Another Very Good Day

March 4th, 2015 at 01:05 pm

My first class went on a long walk today through all the Bloomsbury squares. Now we've been here for six weeks; a person would think they might have discovered them before? They're a two-minute walk away. But it was fun to show them where Virginia Woolf lived, and Yeats, and Dickens, and a host of others.

My other class also went well, and I had been a bit grumbly about students who have been a little lax. Yet when I left, my most trying student said, "Don't leave. We like your classes best." I went home with a big smile on my face.

I spent nothing until I went grocery shopping this evening, when I spent 20 GBP. I had a voucher for double loyalty points, so stocked up on things I'll need soon like more coffee, bottled water for upcoming trips, and laundry soap. I'm a bit pleased as I've managed to wean myself off half and half in my coffee and switch to whole milk. Perhaps I'll get it down to 2 percent someday, but think I must be saving some fat and calories.

I have a huge pile of grading since last night was theatre night. "Once," the musical we saw was very good, and my colleague bought me a drink which you could have on the stage! Very fun.

    I got off dairy this way -- I went without coffee for three days. Sure my head felt like bloody pipecleaners, but on the fourth day I had straight coffee, could taste it all, and did not go back to dairy. But now I don't have straight coffee, I have a half-teaspoon of Saigon cinnamon, or I have a tablespoon of coconut oil. But not both at once.

    I stayed overnight in Russell Square my first night in London. Wish I spent more time at the British Museum.

    Sounds like a fun evening worth a load of grading piled up. Smile
