April 18. Day 109. Marking sucks

When my son was very little and they were role playing at day care he would often get a bundle on papers and a red pen and scowl and scribble. Asked what he was doing he would say "marking Mummy's 'signments".
Marking assignments. The bane of my existence. It's week 7 of the 13 week university semester and I'm drowning in assignment hell. I was marking until midnight and again at 5am. I am tired and grumpy and I would stay away from me if I were you. Don't say you weren't warned.
At this exact second I am up to date and I am not due another bundle for 49 hours 16 minutes (yes, I am counting actually). So if you will excuse me for just a second, I think I might put my head down on the desk,


  1. Ah, I do so understand this one...

  2. Lovely colours,, I'm Happy to lend a hand assignment marking parties are bound to come into vogue one day soon.

  3. never gave this a thought when at uni...how hard our awful assignments were on our tutors. love how the wee one copied what you did...they are so so comical
