Relaxing Weekend

I'll blame the fact that the libraries were shut anyway, rather than the nice weather...

Yesterday I went punting (picture nicked from Rob's facebook). It was my first time from the Cherwell Boathouse, which proved to be a nice stretch of the river, past Wolfson and LMH. After that, since we had some food and drink left, we went and sat in the Parks for a couple of hours in front of a game of cricket - not really watching, but getting Rob to explain the game. I finally have a reasonable grasp of what 'silly mid on' means!

Today I played tennis again with my old flatmate Pavel. It was our third full match of the season, and a rather embarrassing 6-0 6-0 6-2 - although I'd claim it was more competitive than that suggests as there were several deuces, especially in the third set (where, having broken his first service game, I lost two break points in his second).

Altogether we were playing for over two hours - although some of that time we were watching Eleni and Nicky - so after that we decided to have a picnic in the gardens behind our flat.

Maybe this is why I ended up doing footnotes - including this - until 11pm tonight!
