Okay, in lieu of anything painted or drawn, an excuse why there isn't any of that.
Life's *frantic*. Rather than the thirteen hours a week which I was supposed to teach after the baby break, I'm now at eighteen, due to my being unable to say no and a colleague falling ill, and me being his regular substitute. 35 more class tests to mark. I've got 30 more lying next to me as we speak, managed the remarkable feat of handing another 29 back the day after I collected them. I spend the mornings at school and the afternoons running after my kids (who are still adorable - but fast; Jana's a walker now), and when I have them in bed at around half past seven, I have two hours to mark, prepare lessons, or work on my "Elfen" project before dropping into bed myself.
The "Elfen" stuff is coming along well though; one pic is finished and I'm in a good flow with the rest. In the afternoons, I sometimes have students of mine coming round to play with the children so I can mark or draw. Twelve-year-olds are the best babysitters in the world. It's incredible how they're attuned to small children. Even the boys!
I'm uploading a few fun pics that are no more than scraps, but I hope you like them anyway. Still very heavy on the Heroes side of things.
So, if I don't comment and reply a lot these days, please forgive me. I'm hoping things will get better in a year or so. Cough.
