Today is a good day. I've finished a delightfully fun book (Wodehouse's Hot Water), which had the good graces to last me until after I'd arrived at my destination. I spent a lovely ten minutes listening to a good opera singer perform in the middle of Paddington rail station. (She was a fundraiser, not a busker, thus the privileged location.) The weather is absolutely beautiful, neither too hot nor too cold, with the occasional cloud in a blue sky. My weekend accommodation overlooks currently-tranquil green sports fields and trees, not a human in sight. There was leftover broad bean and fennel salad for part of lunch.

I'm in Oxford for the Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery, a wonderful, quirky, and sold-out conference I last attended two years ago. This weekend should be good too.

My mom is also in Oxford this week, for some sort of businessy thing. Though technically, she's at some little town near Oxford, at a retreat at a monastery or something. I think. Clearly I am not helpful. ;) Enjoy your symposium! It sounds fascinating.

Must have been the day for them....there were two very good opera singers in Durham on the 11th in the middle of the Market Square.
