Not much blogging over the last few days as a very good friend – my flatmate when I was doing my PhD, who’s now doing a PhD of her own – has come to stay, to go and see Kevin Brownlow films at the National Film Theatre and generally wander around London. I’m only writing this now because she’s had to pop home for tonight, but she’ll be back
tomorrow later today. We always have a lot of catching up to do, which involves drinking a lot of wine and sitting up talking about history, films, music, food, politics, our respective families and whatever else comes up into the early hours (followed by skiving off work, ahem). These vitally important activities do not leave much time for blogging. So I may get a post or two in this morning, but things won’t be back to normal until Tuesday-ish.
And sorry about the breakdown in service for much of today. Something strange to do with the server side of things, the kind of thing that’s completely incomprehensible to me.
