This week I have been mostly…
It was time for the annual pilgrimage to the inlaws who live in Devon. We fly the rest of the time (Newcastle –> Exeter) but once a year we go down for a bit longer with the car. This time, instead of doing the 6 hours or so in one day, we stopped off in Doncaster and then again at a National Trust property. It made for an enjoyable journey!
I’ve decided that listening to music mainly by album on Spotify is slightly anachronistic. So I’ve been reorganizing my playlists into ‘Running’, ‘Train’, ‘Deadline’, ‘Working’, etc. I’ve kept the album-focused playlists for the moment, but situational playlists seem to be the way forward!
Considering the future
Whilst I’m only four months into my new job (and greatly enjoying it) I’ve got to think about the future. I’ve got a two-year contract with JISC infoNet. Specifically I’ve been considering:
- What (if anything) do I want to do with my Ed.D. when I finish it?
- Is Northumberland where should we bring up Ben and his sister (when she’s born)?
- Do I want to stay in the FE/HE sector, move back into schools or do something entirely different?
I haven’t made any decisions and, if past experience is any guide, things tend to come out of the blue when you least expect them… :-p
