I would like to say I decided it’s time to do a check-in post to keep everyone up-to-date with what’s happening in my life, but in reality I’m procrastinating about other stuff and realise it’s a while since I’ve posted anything. And… when in doubt – do a ‘life lately’ post.
I am studying. And weirdly I’m enjoying it. I’m not sure I’ll do very well as everyone seems very smart and knows lots of literary stuff but I’m gobsmacked I’m approaching my desk with enthusiasm each day.
My first assignment was due this week and I submitted it on time, though I’m rather nervous about it.
I had to miss this week’s classes as I was away (more on that shortly) but I’ve diligently been to the two exercise classes I committed to for three entire weeks. It’s my intention to keep going and hopefully build on that.
I’m actually writing this from Brisbane (our State’s capital) where I’ve been for some treatment for my dodgy heart. It’s no big deal but it’s supposedly been ‘restarted’ and is back to normal. I’ll get it checked in a week or so and probably need to monitor it in some way but I’m really really hoping I’m nowhere near as tired as I’ve been for a looooong time; and that I’m not as breathless when doing virtually nothing.
For those not on Twitter, one of the risks of the treatment I had this week was a stroke. So on waking from my general anaesthetic I filmed myself doing a cognitive test! Ignore the post-hospital theatre chic!

Reading and reviewing
As my study ramps up I’m wondering again how much time I want to devote to reviewing. For reasons unknown I can’t let it go though I continue to moan about the many hours involved in each review.
And that’s life lately for me. Anything exciting at your end to report?
