Sabbatical: Week Four

The fourth week of my sabbatical is over.

Right now it still feels like an extended holiday rather than the “oh wow, this is something special” that I know it will morph into over time.

The week is interesting because I’ve started to feel less fulfilled from what I’m doing each day – I get to the end and think “I haven’t done enough today”.

Sabbatical: Week Three

As I come to the end of my third week of sabbatical, it’s time to look back on my first fully planned no-family-at-home and no-Covid time.

It’s not been a week of anything momentous but the starts of lots of smaller things.

Sabbatical: Week Two

Well, that’s the second week over with. And thank God it is. Covid is not much fun, and I appreciate that I’m getting it at a time when the strain is weaker and I’m fully vaccinated too.

But, bloody hell, I’m ready to move on.

Although I continued to do “things”, it hampered what I could do but, also, I felt quite weak and tired. None-the-less, stuff did happen.

Sabbatical: Week One

As I said initially, this week (particularly as schools were home) was always going to be a planning and build-up week.

However, it hasn’t quite ended how I wanted it to.

Sabbatical: Day Three

Half way through the first week of  my sabbatical.

Yesterday involved some baking with Lucie – a rather lovely lemon drizzle cake (I went heavy on the lemon so it has quite a zing to it). See the image below for how it turned out! Otherwise, it was a relatively quiet day.

Today, we met one of my brother-in-laws and his wife at Chatsworth House (or rather the farm and the surrounding grounds).
