|The campus, at 6.12pm|
|Making lunch, at 6.12am|
I have a couple of meetings and a few administrative tasks to attend to today but no teaching as such. I will head to the 6pm politics class to meet the students, I'm due to take over the teaching there mid-semester. Still, there is class preparation and plenty of follow-up tasks to pursue. I'll be on campus for about 11 hours today and probably 12 tomorrow.

job is done.
I didn't venture far from the office today with so many things to be done. I was however, returning from the lecture theatre at 6.12pm. It was, in fact, the first time I'd been outside since going into the office at 9.00am. We're lucky, we have a rather pleasant campus, with real live kangaroos and some spectacular shape buildings, architecturally-speaking. The light at 6.12pm too, not quite sunset and working its way through the clouds. I still had another two hours ahead in the office at this stage but it was quite nice to be outside.
The rain isn't going away for a while yet. But everyone is settling into classes and patterns for the next 14 weeks will be set soon. Before long we will, as we always do, be chugging along.
