You'll no doubt have noticed (all ten of you) that the Wednesday and Friday posts have not been coming with regularity. So, it turns out that the initial schedule I decided on was too ambitious. Moving forward, I'll continue the Monday posts, with occasional Friday posts about language learning or more specialised topics.
As for the TestDaF quest: that's still on, but with a variable testing date. It turns out that I might want to take leave next February (when I planned on taking the TestDaF), because a certain performer is returning to the West End in green.
