|The calm before the course: training room in New Jersey|
First of all there were editorial training courses to run in London and in Shrewsbury, followed by a heavy load of marking journalism assignments and media law exams for students at Southampton Solent University.
Then I jetted out to New Jersey to run some editorial workshops and social media sessions with the legal editors at xperthr.com. The great news is they've just won their first award.
And I spent most of last week running a series of one-day media law refresher sessions for editorial staff and teams.
Today, I've been completing the prep for my annual session on the Guild of Agricultural Journalists/John Deere training course while keeping half an eye on the latest developments in the progress of the Defamation Bill.
I should have made time to blog at some point, but sometimes it all gets too much.
