Well, it had to happen sooner or later. And it happened today. I had to go back to work. And that means marking. I think I've figured out the answer to making marking bearable though. It is that you mustn't try and do it all in one day. I think I've just tried this. My brain is presently in a puddle on the floor. I've not got to bend down, scoop it up and get it back into my head before it notices this.
If you pace yourself and decide to do reasonable number each day you can almost remain sane.
