The original plan (ie. the plan that only came into being two days ago) for today would have seen us spending this morning with my mum and dad. But plans changed, and circumstances dictated that we suddenly had an entire Sunday morning in which we had no jobs to do… this an entire morning in which we could get up and breakfast leisurely… and I feared lots.

For lunchtime we ventured out into an increasingly blustery day for Sunday lunch at the in-laws, and I even found a bit of time in the afternoon to read my book. I’be been reading Magical Tales, the companion book to the brilliant exhibition at The Bodleian. It’s a fantastic inspirational and interesting book for me although it does have the “downside” in that I can’t seem to get past a chapter without asking at least for books to my To Read list.
