Well the final phase of pack-unpack-wash-repack-in-bigger-case is well and truly underway and I shall be leaving for Cambridge after lunch, having dashed back from Oxford last Wednesday to a patiently waiting sea of lovely gentlemen with the net result being that today has been my first much-needed day off for a week.
