It is the day before a big GCSE moderation, I feel sick with nerves. I worry I will forget something and worse still that the marks I gave will seem totally ridiculous once presented to the rest of the group.
Next week is my A' level moderation different but no easier as it is one on one, her opinion versus mine. Again you spend the whole day feeling queasy.
Worse still I have to pay for the holiday and have been too scared to check my bank balance. Today is the day and that combined with feeling sick is probably enough to give me heart failure. So I would far rather be here... The best book ever published on Picasso is called Goodbye Picasso, it is a wonderful mix of photographs from his Chateau and paintings he liked enough to keep. Sometimes I dream of such a place, I will probably need to when the ambulance has to resuscitate me later!
