changeable moods, history thesis fair, late spuds, conted trinity newsletter, horseshoes, cannock chase, b, amok, lie in

Enjoyed cycling this morning. The countryside's moods were changeable as the threat of showers came and went, as the above pics show. Cloudy skies, occasional bursts of sunlight--and lots of beautiful spring blossom.

A busy week, including working bank holiday Monday-see last post--some challenging (though stimulating) meetings and the History Thesis Fair.

A bit of gardening on Tuesday night meant I got some onions in on the allotment. A week or so late but they might come to something. But then the showers started and so planting spuds has been badly delayed. Ah well, all gardening fun.

Meanwhile, was really pleased that StreetBooks and A Conscious Englishman by Margaret Keeping were featured in the University of Oxford, Department for Continuing Education Trinity newsletter (page 4).

A friend visited today--great lunch at the Hollybush Witney's sister pub, The Three Horseshoes.  Lovely lunch.

Earlier, when I got up, I enjoyed listening to Open Country on Radio 4, which was all about Cannock Chase. Took me back to days with B during the late 70s, early 80s.

On the bus back from Witney this afternoon, listened to Amok by Atoms for Peace--suitably low-key surreal for the long vistas of the Thames Valley and the scudding skies.

Looking forward to lie in tomorrow.
