It seems as if I've been very far away for a very long time. I was so utterly immersed in the summer school routine that it's not at all easy to get back to how things were before. I'm planning much but achieving little: my bag still sits unpacked by my bedroom door, scraps of paper are strewn across the chest of drawers and a half completed funding application lies on the table next to my laptop. Trying to ease myself back in I went out running after tea, on a half-paced, twenty-minute loop around the beach with my brother. Tomorrow I'll do better.
