Bits I don't like so much about the summer:

- the heat. Yes, it is absurd, I grew up and lived half my life in a place that is probably hotter than here. All the same, I find it difficult to function when it's hot, I get slow and lethargic.

- the much reduced income. This has, surprisingly, not been so bad this year; almost enough of my pupils have stuck around having lessons through this time for me to pay my bills. Almost enough.

Bits I do like:

- being able to get up at 9:00 am. I'm not a morning person.

- being able to spend a lot of time reading and mucking about with guitars. Have a few books on the go at the moment, mainly 'Rivers of London' by Ben Aaranovitch (set reading for the next bibliogoth meeting), which is not the deepest book I've read, say, but is a lot of fun, thus far. Also slowly making my way through Melwyn Bragg;s The Adventure of English (a history of the English language) and the Apocalypse Codex by Charlie Stross.
