Sunset at Port Meadow

Every day is getting longer. Summer is going to be here in not too long... but for now, there's no reason to wish away the pleasures of sunny January days: big flocks of white birds on the flooded meadow, cold on my face, wrapping up in my winter coat, stepping into warm pubs for a quick, fortifying drink, and best of all, the beauty of a fading winter sunset.

Today I had lunch in the Oxford University Press building. My friend Anne works there. Lunch was lovely and it was cool to see the big Georgian buildings. The OUP is surprisingly big!

Oh the weather outside is frightful...

But the fire inside the octagon is so delightful.

Magdalen College

I went to Magdalen to attend a workshop that my friend Tere put together. Most of these pictures are from Magdalen's Cloisters Quad, which is one of the most beautiful places in Oxford.

Looking through the bars at some rarely visited colleges

Regents Park, St Cross, and Blackfriars. It took me ages to find the first.

Putting up the Christmas tree in Broad Street

Oxford has lots of Christmas decorations. Look for more as we get closer to December!

Flowers in the wall by Wadham

A cold little ladybird as well!

Harris Manchester College

I have been going to a teaching seminar lately where this statue and I observe the quad.

The fish in St Catz

I hope they are warm! Because it is really cold out today.

This... is not a parking space.

It was weirdly just outside the English and Law Faculties.

In Streatley

Nathan and I went for the day.

In the Icelandic room of the English faculty library

Reading up for finishing my background chapters.

A very old book about archaeology in Iceland

I particularly like the hand drawn map.
