Week 66: Christmas Day and Cycling in Tasmania

Christmas had arrived. Breaking with tradition, the family trip to the little church on the hill had taken place on Christmas Eve instead of Christmas morning. Instead we would be going straight into opening all of the presents that had amassed underneath the tree.

Week 62: Last Week in Cambridge (for 2017)

My first task on Monday morning was to head to the GSCR to meet with Olly, the outgoing Gates Council treasurer.

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
