Archaeology in Cambridge fields

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Despite the black clouds that are swathed across the sky it’s been a beautiful evening. Tim and I cycled along the towpath to Waterbeach past rowers and water fowl. We heard our first cuckoo of the year and saw two moorhens fighting which I’ve never seen before. The flies along the river are pretty bad […]

Muted colours in a wet and dark autumn

Friday, November 7th, 2008

Yesterday I went to spend my alloted 20 minutes talking to the person in charge of my SFI course. It was quite good getting some time to talk to a teacher and ask questions. The work experience I get to do after a few months consists of two full days a week at a place […]

Riot of colour

Monday, November 3rd, 2008

It is now officially cold and I have even considered putting the heating on! On the 1st of November I noticed the first frost. Yesterday there was frost again but this time it lingered long into the day. Today there was ice. Yes real ice. I wandered down to Slottsskogen with the camera and there […]

A brief trip to Hisingen

Monday, June 30th, 2008

I cycled down the river and over the bridge to Hisingen to have a look around. I cycled through the houses up to S.A.Hedlunds Park and Slätta Damm. It’s a lovely wild area – hills covered in trees and Slätta Damm is a lake covered in water lilies. The Swedes really know how to make […]

Andrew Duncan highly recommended

Friday, April 4th, 2008

I walked around St James after work today. It’s quite nice but it’s bizarre wandering past the shops seeing priceless antiques on sale, of the sort that I’ve only ever seen in galleries and museums. It was odd seeing things in Christies advertised at more than the cost of an ordinary person’s house and it […]

Wizzinipped and holidayish

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

I had a fantastic weekend. Went up to see my Granny and was fed wholesome stew and porridge. We then popped into Cambridge on the way to Norwich and had a look around Churchill, Trinity and Clare Colleges with Tim. We wizzinipped to Norwich so I could meet up with Will, Ella and Rich. We […]

Wandering London

Thursday, April 5th, 2007

The weekend was glorious with wonderful sunshine. I wandered around Kensington on Sunday and Monday looking at all the beautiful old houses. Kensington Gardens is an amazing space. It’s just so big and full of people when it is sunny. I wandered round with Keyvan’s camera snapping trees, flowers, and occasionally, surreptitiously, people! I’m becoming […]
