The April fool

Well, my most recent resolution lasted about three days. The nature blogging has already started to slip. That's what happens when work intervenes.

My working day started with an interminable meeting where everyone got snagged on the minutiae. Not on the sentences, not on the words, not even on the letters but on the serifs. (Metaphorically, that is. It wasn't a typesetters' convention.) The rest of the day wasn't any better.

Still, the long weekend is on its way and I'm on leave for a week from 16th to the 20th April. At least, I think I am. I haven't heard anything from my Head of School.

And I've decided to make a new resolution. One that's (slightly) easier to keep. I have to get through the day without swearing so much. But I'll start on Wednesday. Tomorrow might not be the best day to give up oaths—I've got three effin' meetings.

You can always replace the u with an e, worked for Father Ted. ;-)

I almost got through the whole of yesterday without an oath. Then I swore twice in quick succession at 5.30pm. My Head of School suggested that it's not a good idea to go cold turkey and that I should probably approach this gradually.
