Week 11, Lent 5

Friday saw a total eclipse of the Sun. Sadly, the best place to see the total eclipse was the Faeroe Isles, which is somewhat further North than we are, so we only got a partial eclipse, but it was very close. There was an event at Wigg Island, and I was able to take some photographs. This is my favourite of those that I took.

Week 10, Lent 4

All else this week has been eclipsed by the loss of the awesome Terry Pratchett.

Even in death, he is more eloquent than I could ever hope to be, so, in memory of him, go, read one of his books. Read all of them. Revel in his genius, and if you are feeling generous, perhaps donate to an Alzheimer's research charity.

Week 9, Lent 3 and Neil Gaiman

NEIL GAIMAN. Yes, the Neil Gaiman, came to the University of Liverpool to open the new Centre for International Writing. And he was fantastic.

Week 8 and Lent 2

Back to work this week. I have made an effort to get out and about at lunchtimes though. I have walked between 1.2 - 1.5 miles most days. I didn't manage on Wednesday, when I took a late lunch to attend a special assembly at school, but I did manage to attend the Friday Nordic Walking Class at lunchtime.

Tuesday's lunchtime walk along the canal.
