Half term: thankfully, a ‘restful’ homework project … watch a load of John Hurt movies and pick a couple to respond to creatively in any way you wish. Thankfully ‘restful’ because I have got ill. The intensity of the last few weeks has dissipated and lurgy has taken over. There is a lot to do in terms of tidying in the garden but I don’t feel up to it. There is a trip to Norwich next week and it seems like a big ask. Being curled-up on the settee watching movies seems like a good plan.
