I took no course in autumn: life intervened. Worse, I’ve been unable to use the language, beyond the occasional question to a train guard.
I restarted on Tuesday evening. Gordon Bennett! On Wednesday morning, I had an endorphin rush, and spent the day with brainache (no, not headache, brainache). My head still hasn’t entirely recovered. Use or lose it, they say, and if that’s the case, I ain’t going to lose it.
