Should I be marking final essays? Yes. Do I only want to work on my Alcea? Yes! I’m just nine rows from completion. Surely anything so mundane as essay marking can, nay, should be left for another day! Alas, marking involves a strict deadline and so must be done.
Thank goodness it’s portable. If the weather holds, I rather think I foresee an afternoon of marking in the park for me, followed by an evening of well-deserved knitting!
