August disappeared before I could even take notice of it and now I find myself already in September. So what did I do in August.
Well, first of all I attended a heap of appointments. Many of those that I had put off during my six months of chemotherapy, including get a new crown put on my tooth, see my optometrist and completing our tax return and tightening up banking accounts.
As well as all of this, I also enjoyed getting back into the swing of university. My Jane Austen course has been wonderful - my lecturer Lesa Scholl is amazing and I have loved the class participation. My first assignment was on Evelina - a pre-Austen novel written by Frances Burney. It was fascinating and I loved doing the 750 word close-reading assignment. Let's hope it scores as well in the marking department.
My other course is Screenplay writing - now this is a challenge. We have had 2 assignments so far and are preparing to write the first 15 pages of a feature film. Mine is a thriller and when I presented it to the class for feedback - they all loved it. Again great lectures and tutorials.
We celebrated Dad's 75th birthday on August 1st - congratulations Dad!
We also welcomed a little addition to our family - Sarah's new kitten - Miss Mae.
