I like it when it’s over and another one’s begun – 29th September 2020

Quick one. Kim staring at me. What’s in her brain – what does a cat think about? Dream about. Birds! Birds chattering – go away cat!

Forgot Drops yesterday. Oh no! 60-day streak gone. Oh well – get up, go again.

I am so happy and grateful that Amy can go to Bangkok and visit her friends and we don’t have to worry about money, I can stay and look after the cats and fish and then next month we can go to Phuket together.

I gotta make plans for the plans I make – 28th September 2020

Tigger talking – announcing his arrival. Prince Tigger is here, I demand attention.

Light rain. Cap ran out to pee and back again.

Neck sore – stretched and worked. Tigger sprayed in my room – little bastard – why? Shove his nose in it?

Easy week again – all easy. Students present movie reviews. What if they didn’t prepare – of course, they didn’t prepare. They are lazy and unmotivated. How to motivate?

I am so happy and grateful for all the planning I did earlier in the year so that I don’t have to work so hard on lesson planning now.

26th Sept 2021 – It feels like nothing much has happened in the intervening year but it also feels like doing the podcast was more than a year ago. I have discovered much more new music to enjoy in the last 12 months but find myself reading books more often these days and I don’t have the brain power to do both at the same time anymore.

I am so happy and grateful to have a guitar again. I’ll never be a great player, maybe not even a good one, but I can enjoy playing and practising at my own pace.

Play time doesn’t last forever – 23rd September 2020

Hard on the kids? Maybe. Put them into line a little – talk to them more. Even small classes, it’s hard to get through to everyone – if they don’t understand. Find a leader – push them forward. Help them work together.

I am so happy and grateful to have my own room to be in, to explore my thoughts and feelings, to play and practice hobbies, to meditate and exercise.
