So, it’s the final day of work and it certainly went off with a bang!
Anyway, the prospect of not doing the ‘daily grind’ for a few weeks feels positively freeing. I've never been in this position before, much like a lot of people I know, and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted. I am not beholden to the 9-5 any longer and it's amazing. Never being one to sit still for more than 5 minutes, it’s going to be a busy few weeks ahead, but with the sun out it’s almost like summer holidays… complete with French homework! Anne has organised a timetable of lessons for me which start in a couple of days. Although I am able to converse in French quite happily these days, I definitely need to work on my grammar and spelling, as well as how to use more professional (and legal) language and terminology. Being all foreign students on the LLM, the first week of the course does incorporate 9 hours of French language skills but, even so, I do like to be prepared!
In all, today has been very productive, and I even managed to squeeze in lunch with a very good friend of mine to catch up on all of her latest news. Tomorrow, the French books will be out and I'm also going to book some gym classes around my new timetable. I am loving this new timetable already, and we haven't even got started yet.
