Sorry for the silence. I've been visiting people's blogs when I can, but my old computer died of extreme old age, and I've now got a new one, which I'm getting to grips with.
I've done a certain amount on the travel front (see below) but largely I've spent time with the babies, and we're doing a third printing of my book Lewis Carroll In His Own Account. The first and second editions were done using a conventional printer, and involved loads of money upfront for hundred of copies. From now on, I'll print just a few copies at a time. I should be doing more on other Lewis Carroll projects but really I have just been enjoying the Spring.
The blossoms are out now
These are in Regent's Park
It's a good year for violets - there's a great carpet of these in the back garden
And on Sunday we went with V & N and had a picnic on Lincoln's Inn Fields
which is in the middle of London's legal area.
Down a side street we saw this - weird dummies in unflattering legal wigs
They are in the window of a pub which several people have recommended to us, called The Seven Stars. I'll go soon, and let you know what it's like.
The Tunisian trip was postponed due to flight availability problems. I was re-invited on it today, but I'd literally just confirmed the trip to Athens and Kythera for almost exactly the same dates. Bah! I am disappointed to miss Tunisia, but grateful also to be going again to one of my favourite countries, Greece.
I've also got invited to a week in Tobago but the trip's entirely based in one resort, which can sometimes not be ideal. But I've asked for more details, in case I'm wrong. Looks like a lovely resort anyway. So we'll see.
Tomorrow I'm going on a first aid course with St. Johns Ambulance, something I've meant to do for years, how great I'm finally getting around to it, though I hope I never need it.
So that's been my pleasant but uneventful week.
