Week 98: BBC Proms Weekend 5 (Part 1)

After work on Monday, I went to collect my cricket whites one last time for the summer. Darwin College had made the final of the MCR cricket league.

Week 70: Burns Night at Trinity and Requiem at King’s

The week started slowly. I was still struggling to get Indy to leave the house; she’d come down with a cold and spent most of the time reading books on the couch. She would venture out for lunches and possibly dinners, but I elected to spend time doing what I would otherwise normally be doing.… Continue reading Week 70: Burns Night at Trinity and Requiem at King’s
