And now the end is near ...
It's been another fantastic week of lunches & catching up with people. Thank you so much to those of you who have taken me out or had a coffee with me. I know it's not always easy to spend the time when it's not you about to disappear off into the sunset.
This week I was lucky enough to have lovely lunches with someone I've worked with for about eleven years (yes, honestly!) - our conversation ran to honourable footballers and super injunctions withstanding there weren't many we could think of! Wednesday, lunch with a friend and a discussion of why renaissance towns in Italy are so well preserved (how intellectual are we?), if you know the answer please let me know. On Thursday it was another lovely if enormous lunch and on Friday lots more food and great conversation. (By the way I promise not to record all my meals for the rest of the life of this blog - this is more about thanking the people I've shared them with). In addition a lovely coffee with a friend who, I'm certain, will be publishing academic papers well before I do!
I've also had some beautiful presents: notebooks (which I absolutely love and will definitely use); a lovely pen (not sure when I'll need that LOL), beautiful candles and flowers, just some of which you can see at the top of this blog. I'll treasure them and the messages which have come with them. Thank you.
