A typical Bank Holiday?

It is the Easter break right now, well actually it is just an extended weekend as for the first time in my lifetime the schoool holiday is not at the same time as Easter so it is back to school tomorrow after a short break.

This long weekend included a flurry of snow, yes a real live flurry over a few days, nothing settling but it was mighty cold walking May along the river.

So today, Bank Holiday Monday we made our trip too Oxford. Louie had wanted to visit Lyra’s Oxford again – last time he and I went to see Callum Innes at Modern Art oxford and he bought this book, so today was the designated day to set off on our Oxford journey.

It was very dark, rainy and cold but armed with a little map we wandered round colleges, bookshops and strange little pen shops, saw random reindeers in the window, walked in the footsteps of J.R.R Tolkein and C.S.Lewis and found the house of the artist William Turner.

Now we are home, warming up, rainboots off and back to school tomorrow
