Week 47: Moving House and the Royal Botanic Gardens

Jacqueline and I started the week in London, having been at the Proms over the weekend. We had to spend a little bit of time cleaning up the apartment and making it ready for its regular inhabitants again. From there, we rode back towards Liverpool Street, stopping at Embankment on the way for some German… Continue reading Week 47: Moving House and the Royal Botanic Gardens

Week 44: Shepreth Wildlife Park, and July Reprise

It was a slow week following the hectic cycling holiday in France. I needed a bit of time to catch a breather. I ventured out to the department for a little bit of work, but it was a lonely place as most of the academics were away and my officemates were in the US. I… Continue reading Week 44: Shepreth Wildlife Park, and July Reprise

On Tuesday, I went with Jacqueline to see another potential house for next… Continue reading Week 30: Real Tennis

The week began with what is now a familiar practice; riding my bikes to the mechanic to have a broken spoke replaced. This was one I had predicted; for various reasons I had locked by bike with a D-lock placing some strain on one of the spokes, and when I was approaching London the previous… Continue reading Week 29: East End Musicals and Medieval Jousting

Week 28: Riding to London and an American in Paris

The week started again as usual, heading into the department, coming home again and so on. I thought it was going to be a rather inconsequential and uneventful week. As it turns out, on Tuesday afternoon, I ate a seemingly inconspicuous lamb and mushroom pie for lunch, but afterwards I started to feel unwell. At… Continue reading Week 28: Riding to London and an American in Paris
