Subdued Sackcloth

The colours in this one were originally quite dull. Happily it was easy to enhance them in GIMP.

Today's Gratitude Item: That the internal microphone on my 'new' school computer is better than anticipated. In fact, I think it might even be better than my 'old' computer's microphone.

Onion Suspension

The shape reminded me of an onion and it was different enough to be worth rendering.

Today's Gratitude Item: Having time to relax without needing to worry about teaching my 'old' Math group ever again. Let's just say there were some 'challenging' students in the group and I'm very glad that the school year is over.

Today's Gratitude Item: Getting to the end of the school year. This time around it was bitter-sweet as I am shifting schools and will miss all of my colleagues at my 'old' school. They gave me a really lovely farewell which was the perfect way to end my time there.

Today's Gratitude Item: Getting my computer for next year 'sorted'. Being able to access the machine early is extremely useful and I have managed to transfer all the necessary data from 'old' to 'new' machine which is a massive relief.
