Hard to believe first term is almost over and that the errands app on my phone is starting to show my May appointments.
I think today is the first Saturday that I haven’t had to spend doing assignments or homework or research of some kind. I have one more assessment on Tuesday which should be easy then one on Thursday more complicated. Then the term is over.
It’s been interesting so far, some parts more than others and we’ve been on a few excursions which have opened my eyes to things I might like to do. You know there are little libraries tucked away in all sorts of places that you never think about. Like the CSIRO, we went there, what an interesting woman we met. And the Botanical Gardens, the Art Gallery, oh and the Caroline Simpson Library, I loved that. They’re all about the history of houses and gardens and interior design. They collect wallpapers and lino and carpet, curtains, blinds stuff like that. But much more. They help with conservation and restoration of historic Australian houses. The guy who works there was so passionate about it. We got to go behind the scenes and into the vaults of the NSW State Library and the Newcastle Library where we met Vic who basically lives down in the stack room amongst these amazing old rare books.
So no homework today. I think I’ll go to the library, go to the markets, watch Lloyd play AFL then make some sushi for dinner.
Here is Chicken Little helping me do some cataloging homework. She gets bored.
