The OU vice chancellor resigned today after a catastrophic period. It has been awful on campus and it felt like a big relief. There are still some big challenges ahead but hopefully can face these in a more collegial manner. So I popped to the pub for a pint

A why purchase

So in Toronto we spent a pleasant, if boozy, evening at the Steam Whistle Brewery. You could buy these 1l milk bottles which they then filled with beer. It seemed like a good idea in the Toronto sunshine but having lugged it back home I now wonder what exactly I’m going to do with it.


Daughter got some of her GCSE results while we were away (she is in year 10 and the split the exams across two years). She got the results she was after so today I introduced her to Prosecco, which she quite liked.
