First of all, apologies for the delay in posting – I’ve been up north to Northumberland for a week as a little break before my PhD starts – I can’t believe I started this blog in April – poised in anticipation for the term to begin – it’s flown by, as clichéd as it sounds. I got a preview to the cold winds but rather glorious sunshine in a great holiday home overlooking the sea and managed to see some great sights in Almouth, Seahouses and Berwyck-on-Tweed (am guessing all these spellings btw). Loved Barter Books – the combination of fireplace, an onslaught of books and a train track that snakes through all the shelves – well, that’s me sold!
I’ll post up some pictures when I’ve got them off my phone – including broomstick training at Alnwick Castle. Also, I am writing a post on transhumanism due to an article I read in New Scientist (essential bathroom reading, haha!) and my long awaited review of the British Library event, Writing Britain. Thoroughly worth it!
