Back to work

I have had two weeks away from work.  I used to dread going back; focussing on the early mornings and the noise.  Seventeen children armed with saxophones waiting for me through the winding corridors of the school.  I'd have rushed out of my house, skipped breakfast and no time for coffee, to try and speak over the echoing honks that filled my days.

Forgetting things

It always takes me by surprise how often I forget things.  Thanks to minimalism, simplifying and owning less stuff, I forget tangible things much less frequently.  I know where my keys are most of the time.  I can always find my pen.  My hairbrush?  It's in the box where I keep it.  I just don't own enough things to forget where they are.
