For my MA in art history I’m doing a thesis on the murals in St Teilo’s church, which was restored and moved to St Fagans museum. I contacted them and today i spent with a researcher who helped me go through the archives. It was very generous of them & really interesting. Bought this book afterward
I cleared out my garage today – 10 years of assorted camping paraphernalia, bat and ball games & various hobbies adopted by daughter and then abandoned. It was cathartic but also a bit sentimental. Still at least I can get from one side of the garage to another now.
Took Bruno to Merthyr Mawr, a protected sand dune environment. Was bit rainy and I was the only one around. Bruno tried to drink sea water.
New signs have gone up in the village welcoming people. Disappointed it doesn’t say “home of eminent OU Professor” underneath – I’ll write to them
Went into town tonight to see Chinese film I am not Madame Bovary tonight with OU colleague Simon Horrocks. It was an unusual film, much of it shot with a circular mask.
In to town again as daughter was pitch side assistant again – Wales beat Poland again making it 3-0 for the series.
This is some graffiti art near landaff fields
Daughter was being a pitch side assistant for Wales Poland women’s hockey match today so I walked into town while she was busy. Inevitably that meant going to Spillers Records, where I bought this copy of Neutral Milk Hotel’s classic album and then had a coffee.
The zen like Heron on the old canal
I only get new trainers every couple of years but after last week’s marathon I got some blisters so got some new ones. I like Hoka as they have a massive sole which cushions impact and I have old mans hips to protect.
Is this normal?
