1. Bella lost her collar again last night. Only a week after the last one, so of course that’s another £10 for that and a name tag…

2. Went swimming after work today, and doing 36 lengths in a not to disreputable time, so I’ve now signed up for the Swimathon again. I’ll be happy with whatever time I do, but if I can beat last years time and get in under the hour, then that would be good.

3. Because I went swimming, and then went and did my weekly shop, I didn’t get back till after The Archers had finished. Consequently, although I want to write/revise, it’s now too late to really get going on it. Tomorrow night, I promise! 😉

4. It looks like the work Summer Party might be held in the Divinity School – part of the Bodleian Library. We’ll have to keep checking that they know what kind of party they are letting themselves for, but when we do mention things like ‘free bar’ and ‘disco’ they just say ‘sounds like fun’. Oh, and if you want to know where you’ve seen it before – its the setting for Hogwarts great hall in the Harry Potter films, although interestingly it’s apparently only wide enough for three long tables, so the fourth ‘house’ has to be added in later digitally!

5. There should be a fifth thing. Chapter four of my book is up for review tomorrow over at CritiqueCircle. Here’s hoping that it gets more reviews than chapter three did during Christmas week…
