Quiet day on campus

Monday 22nd July 2019, 12.05pm (day 2,888)

Christies, 22/7/19

Graduation fortnight is over, the school holidays have started, and campus was blissfully quiet today. It would be lovely if it stayed like this forever; but we have about seven weeks.

Jenna’s mint tea

Wednesday 3rd October 2018, 10.40am (day 2,596)

Mint tea, 3/10/18

A morning meeting with a colleague, held in the pleasant surroundings of the Christie Bistro. I had my usual builder’s brew but she went for the mint tea option and I was taken by the appearance of the leaves suspended in the water. As you see here. (I mean, that’s what this blog is, isn’t it? I show you what I see each day…)

Also, a minor milestone — I make this the blog’s 500th Manchester shot.

In the Christie Bistro

Thursday 1st November 2012, 1.30pm (day 434)

Christie Bistro, 1/11/12
