no overcoat, sunny transformation, lady's smock, sedge, white archangel, mogford prize for food and drink writing, nicky winder, cilip talk

























Enjoyed a lovely walk to work this morning. The first day without an overcoat for ages.

It was amazing yesterday seeing the oilseed rape coming into flower in the Thames Valley, when I was travelling home on the bus. The warmth of the sun had transformed the landscape in hours. And today, by the Thames near Port Meadow, there were lady's smock, sedge and white archangel - all suddenly in flower. Their leaves that most astonishingly fresh green that you only see at the very start of spring.

Went to the Mogford Prize for Food and Drink Writing party on Thursday. Wonderful fun! Congratulations to the winner, Nicky Winder, for her story, Bait. You can download it from the prize website.

Looking forward to giving a talk at the CILIP South Member Network AGM and CILIP Thames Valley AGM at the Jam Factory, Oxford next Thursday afternoon. It's entitled, Micropublishing, teaching, digital research: different worlds, or all in a day's work for the (future) librarian?
