Dilly is tutoring all morning tomorrow, so I’ll look after the children from 8.30. I think that’ll be the last session for now – she wants a summer holiday as much as the students she teaches do. However, it’s quite useful as she normally teaches immediately after school or later, no more than one session per day (not every day) so at least she’s using her time efficiently.
I’m not intending to use my time efficiently at all. I’ve pretty well switched off for the holidays. I’ve a meeting on the 13th which I have to arrange, but that shouldn’t be a problem, and I’ve got to get some things organised in the house and garden before going away on Friday. The Sage is already backtracking on his agreement to come with me, and has decided to return on Sunday rather than Monday. Dilly and Al will move in here, because the house is never left – nor is Tilly, come to that. Dilly asked what time Tilly needs to go out in the morning. I said, as soon as possible. She’ll know if she comes down too late…
Actually, Tilly has been a bit better recently. Usually, she’s too polite to bother us if she wants to go out during the night, and just uses the floor, but the other night she woke the Sage at 2 am to go out. I don’t think she knows what she did right when he told me in the morning, but she didn’t object to the praise she received.
I downloaded a new level for iAssociate 2 a day or two back. I’m embarrassingly pleased to have completed it and submitted my score, to be told I’m in the top 100 of finishers – 23 out of 87 in that particular round, to be exact. I really don’t have enough to do with my time. Which is rather the way I like it, just now.
