March: this month I have…

  • Considered the cultural importance of handwriting thanks to ‘Who needs handwriting?’, a great podcast episode from Freakonomics.
  • Shared this fascinating simulation of reading with dyslexia with my colleagues.
  • Secured my first donation of books for Erayim!
  • Finished reading my first novel in German (Der Vorleser by Bernhard Schlink).
  • Done a spot of tutoring… always fun to teach one-to-one.
  • Signed up for One Stop English (a tutor needs materials!) and been overwhelmed by the amount of content available on the site.
  • Attended a fantastic lecture by Professor Nannerl O. Keohane entitled ‘Women as Leaders’ at the equally fantastic Blavatnik School of Government.
  • Tried Gefilte fish for the first time – and loved it.
  • Spent some of the Easter break walking the Thames Path. Recommended!
