sunrise, under the weather, book launch missed, lunch with cousin

Working in Oxford for part of today, so was up early. Took photo of sunrise through the lime tree above our garden shed at about 6 am. OK sunrise is a bit misleading--sun had been up for a while. Still fresh and beautiful, though.

Had a lovely walk along the Oxford canal, then camomile tea at Caffè Nero. Now heading back home to enjoy the late afternoon sun in our garden.

Cough and cold mentioned last weekend didn't give up and became something of a nightmare. Still not fully recovered but on the mend.

Was meant to attend Oxford launch of If I Could Tell You by Jing-Jing Lee but couldn't go because I wasn't feeling well. See the book on Goodreads:

I did, however, have lunch with a cousin yesterday. We had never met till then, even though we are quite closely related. A lovely occasion! Discoveries, including places we both know in Wiltshire and Somerset and on my part lots of new information about family history.

  1. Really sorry to hear that you're still not over the beastly cold.
    Lovely picture - I particularly liked the gentle sagging shed roof, which seems to be trying to mimic the curvature of the earth to compliment the sun.

  2. It's too bad you couldn't attend the launch, Frank! You were missed. Hope you're feeling better now that the sun is out.
