It's a very strange job, you know. This week I've had to prepare : a lesson for teenagers explaining the magic of the traditional English Christmas via the music of Slade; two hours of business material for an honorary consul; and a lesson on the restoration of Jan van Eyck's The Annunciation (the art restorer wanted a lesson with some technical vocab). Yeah, it's certainly the strangest job I've ever had. It's almost certainly the best job I've ever had, as well.
Caroline...well, Caroline, faced every day with an army of bellowing teenagers, might not go as far as that. Still, she came back from a morning's teaching on Friday and happily announced that it had "not been horrible". I almost felt we should crack open a bottle of prosecco!
