A weekend of Jelly Beans

My father was here this weekend and so I posted less. It was a very good weekend though — he brought jelly beans and a very nice bag for me. We talked for the whole weekend, which was very nice — not something you are able to do on the telephone or Skype. We drove around, saw things, and just relaxed. After I had taken him to the airport on Sunday night, I came home to a load of work to be done. I tried to put Naomi to sleep and was too effective as I fell asleep too. I woke up at 9:30 and tried to write a few emails, which was a wholesale disaster if I judge based on what I am reading this morning. I went back to sleep and I woke up this morning with a raging cold.

I'm now at work, trying to get my stuff together to start my new course, Introduction to Qualitative Research Methods. There is reading to do.

In the course of the weekend, I lost my cell phone and found it this morning and corrupted a word file and saved it this morning. So much wasted time. I'm now also responsible to drive seven Japanese academics around England in the middle of December. I don't know how I got into this, but it should be okay, provided I don't get lost a lot and I am able to make a little bit of money off of it.
