V chilly all day today. I always miss the opportunity to take this shot so here is “train reflected in river”
Popped down the bay tonight to pick up a Wagamama & have a walk around with daughter. Millennium centre always looks nice lit up
I pay into a wine club thing monthly and my Christmas case arrived. I would like to pretend it’ll be for all the guests visiting over Christmas but no, it’s all mine.
The BBC’s favourite location – the forest by my house – in use again. Lots of special effects vans and screaming coming from the Three bears cave. It was labelled BTK location – trying to think what series BTK could be?
I did my long run today. If I head away from Cardiff then it gets very rural, very quickly
Daughter and I went to a stand up to racism rally at Cardiff uni tonight. I sometimes feel these events are more about making ourselves feel better than actually achieving anything. But it was good, all the speakers were articulate and daughter came away inspired. It did feel like being back in the 70s, with rock against racism and the like. This is where we are now.
I’m in Paris for a couple of days at a meeting on OER in Unesco. Staying in a (tiny!) AirBnB, nice view though
We saw this band at Nozstock festival & daughter saw they were in town so we went to the Tramshed in Cardiff. This was her first proper gig, and it was a good choice. They’re a lively band and it was like a big party. Was kinda nice to be in a place where people were just enjoying themselves at the end of this week.
Just going with dog pics for a while
After the calamitous events in America overnight it was hard to do anything today. It’s not just that my choice didn’t win but that someone so fundamentally unqualified for the job gets it, makes you think “what’s the point of any of it?”
But had to work on a course today which was actually distracting enough. And Bruno was still here, needing affection & walks & food.
