Well, a long time since the last update, but I least I have the excuse of having been away for a week!
We went to Centre Parcs, in Sherwood Forest, which was actually a really good holiday. The villa was very comfy, with excellent heating, plus an open fire! They more or less ban cars from the site (except on changeover days), which makes it quite pleasant to walk and cycle around, and certainly at the time of year that we were there it wasn’t too busy either.
Also just moved into my new office (vey exciting), although it is exceptionally noisy – all the undergraduates talking outside!!
