Miss T Runs Again

As ‘Race for Life’ was such a triumph – I’ve signed up for the Blenheim 10k at the beginning of October.

I throw down the ‘techo-gauntlet’ -who’s going to join me? This event is open to men as well as ladies.

I am DETERMINED to get fit and raise some more money for Cancer Research UK – I’d love it if as many of you as possible could do the same.

[PS David darling – I had HONESTLY totally forgottten that I’d dared you to enter the Eynsham pram race with me this year, that’s not why we booked to go away on holiday. There’s always next year babe!]

Dinosaurs, Dodos and Sadie

My friend Sadie is down from Scotland for a college reunion – we took the opportunity to go to one of my favourite places, The University Museum of Natural History (OUM). If like me, you’re a great lover of Victorian Gothic, the building alone is worth a visit.

I absolutely ADORE the roof – Victorian engineering at it’s finest.

No trip to the OUM is complete without a dash into the Pitt Rivers to have a look at the shrunken heads. I didn’t take my camera with me, and snaps I took on my ‘phone haven’t come out all that well. We noticed that the museum is going to be closed from 7th July 2008 until Spring 2009.

The talk of refurbishment was a bit of a worry, as one of the joys of the Pitt Rivers is it’s untouched nature. However, it turns out that the plan is to dismantle the 1960s exhibition gallery – full details can be found at this URL : http://www.prm.ox.ac.uk/hlf.html.

How to describe Eynsham?

I’ve just finished writing a letter to the child we sponsor in Sri Lanka. Plan UK suggest that you include pictures of where you live. I have sent local post-cards, including one of Eynsham Morris – I hope the poor child isn’t scared out of his wits!
