Pause for breath

Holiday (1) draws to a close, and I return to Oxford from a week with my parents’ today. Holiday (2) starts tomorrow, when I’m off to Milan. I return in a week and will probably need holiday (3) to recover from all the dashing about. I have had a lovely week here, but it has been very busy, and next week will doubtless be great fun and also very busy.

Things I have not done this week:

- Read much
- Catch up with my horribly behind diary for August
- Pack all my books
- Get as much sleep as would have been a good idea

Things I have done this week:

- Pack everything except my books to take to Oxford
- Get very dusty in the loft
- Visit Ilkley, upper Wharfedale, the Mercer Gallery in Harrogate, Wentworth Woodhouse, Wentworth Castle, Conisburgh Castle (the latter three on the same day), go out for dinner, walk on the Chevin
- Spent more time on the M1 than I would have liked, including witnessing up close the grisly demise of a pigeon
- Eat lots of nice food cooked by other people, and drink some very nice drinks
- Stay up too late

And the latest Icelandic volcano has finally erupted just in time for me to see it, while not disrupting aviation across Europe. Perfect.
