The Apparition

Thursday 24 July 2014: The Fine Art of Recumbence

An absolutely cracking start to the holidays...

Woke up at the crack, feeling somewhat sore from the previous night's revelry. Swallowed a couple of ibuprofen and intended on sleeping it off, but was thwarted by my body clock, still set for early.

I got up, made some coffee and finished a little job that needed doing. Mrs SP still sound asleep, I decided to lace up the Mizunos and go for a little trot in the sun. And what a lovely little jaunt it was: the countryside is right on my doorstep!

On my return, Mrs SP made a splendid breakfast of eggy bread and bacon. Fast broken, we headed into Ware, picked up my Belgian beer order and ambled through town making frequent stops at charity shops. I bagged myself a copy of Modern Teaching: Volume Three, which focuses on the teaching of English. It dates back to 1928 and contains a surprising amount of sense. Just goes to show that ideas in education really do go round in circles.

Snatched today's blip just before we went for lunch at a pub called The Punch House. Food was delicious as was the beer that helped wash it down: Double Hop Monster. Recommended.

Tomorrow sees a reprise of last year's boat trip in Datchet; should be messy...
