After those last four days off instead of the ususal two, plus of course the heady delights (such as they were) of the long trip down to Plymouth, Monday at college came as quite a shock. In my diary I also reiterated that I simply had not been doing enough work towards my A Levels. This evening I was struggling with a ‘simple’ problem. What the problem was is totally irrelevant. The real issue is with my oft spouted promise that I would ‘make up for lost time’. I was going to do it during ‘the fallow times of break and lunch.’ Yeah right! I really did use the term ‘fallow times’ and yes, we really have heard it all before.
