If I am not mistaken, this is only the 2nd time since the beginning of my sojourn in blogland that I post twice in one day.
It is with good reason; the topic of this post has nothing to do with the previous one, and I did not want to use the post about Studley Royal and the Valley of the Seven Bridges for anything else.
June is coming towards its end. Just one more full week to it, and I am going to spend that week away from home. For what I hope will be the last time, I'll be in Ulm for the last part of my course to become a certified Data Protection Officer.
We'll be in class all day from Monday to Thursday and then sit our final exams in seven subjects on Friday. Failure quote is relatively high at 20 %, but I hope to be part of the 80 % who get through at their first attempt. Otherwise, I would have to go back in autumn or winter and take the exams again in those subjects I failed.
There will probably not be much time during the week for visiting your blogs; I do not have a laptop or tablet, but for internet access depend on my mobile phone and the public computer in the lounge at the hotel.
It was a good month so far, with cherries from the tree in front of my house, picked directly out of my kitchen window.
Then there was last Thursday, a public holiday in my part of Germany, and I spent that on walks, first with my Mum and then on my own (pictures will follow).
And - believe it or not! - I actually did sit down for some serious revising in preparation for my final exams.
I'll let you know how it went when I return, and will then also take up the Yorkshire holiday report where I left off earlier today.
