Music in the Office

Having moved and now on my own with the nascent studio, the self-indulgent music playing in my office does not have to go through headphones. So that means at least I can get up and move around without either strangling  myself or pulling everything off the desk.

I can have what in like on – at the moment it’s Mendelssohn (Italian Symphony) and before then it was Jon Lord’s Durham Concerto, before that Bach Magnificat.

A couple of months ago I said that I’d bought Music and Mathematics, from Pythagoras to Fractals (Fauvel, Flood and Wilson) so it’s going on holiday with us. Other half has also found a copy of Pevsner Buildings of England, Cornwall which Books Plus in Penzance have put aside for us. At the end of next week we’ll be preparing to be in a tent for three weeks – no email, no internet. So we can actually catch up on reading, if not sleep. Mind you, the dogs will keep us active. I swear they can tell the state of the tide and when the biggest area of beach is available for them.

But now it’s back to analysing student performance and advising them how best they can study to pass their resits.
