It's been hectic at work lately (in fact, things seem to be that way most of the time!) & tomorrow I'm off to Taranaki with my Dean & the VC for a couple of days. Why? To meet with teachers & principals of schools there, so that we can find out more about the needs of teachers & students, & how we can support them. This sort of thing is really important - we do a better job of teaching our uni students if we understand where they're coming from, plus we're at the cutting edge of new science & can offer a lot of new knowledge that hasn't made it into the textbooks yet :-)
Anyway, basically what this means is that service may be interrupted for a couple of days. I could sit down & write something in my motel room tomorrow night - but there are some excellent restaurants in New Plymouth!
