Week 57: Real Tennis vs Middlesex and the Cambridge University Sinfonia

Jacqueline and I returned from Snowdonia late on Monday morning. Owing to a series of train delays, we both returned tired and exhausted. We therefore both spent much of the week relatively easy, now returned to a rhythm of working, eating and, for me, playing a bit of tennis. It was a fairly distracted week,… Continue reading Week 57: Real Tennis vs Middlesex and the Cambridge University Sinfonia

2016-17: Year in Review

The conclusion of the Orientation trip to the Lake District brings with it a moment for reflection and contemplation. For one, it is the culmination of months of work on a massive project which now leaves space to focus on new tasks.

Week 30: Real Tennis

Aside from Easter Monday, this was a pretty ordinary and uneventful week. Each day would involve riding into the department, working, having lunch, working some more, going home for dinner and relaxing through the evening. That isn’t to say nothing interesting happened.

Week 27: Traditional Birthday Punting

We had arrived back in Cambridge from Bulgaria very late, one of the last trains out from Stansted Airport. After a whirlwind adventure through Bulgaria, it was time to get things back on track and to some relative sense of normalcy. On the first day back, being a Wednesday, work resumed with the regular weekly… Continue reading Week 27: Traditional Birthday Punting
