It has been brought to my attention that I haven't actually posted the pictures of my weekend in Cambridge. It was over a month ago now, back when it looked like England knew what summer was supposed to involve; it seems to have forgotten now.

I hadn't realised that punting, a traditional Cambridge activity, was planned for the afternoon, so I wasn't quite dressed for it, but we had fun none the less. Here is me actually punting and getting the boat to move in a forwards direction:

And here is me, crashing into a tree:

Damn overhanging branches, trying to grab the punt right out of my hands! I battled free though, with some assistance from all. And we had our very own pirate dog, when the boys rescued a punt from the grips of the river and offered it back she quickly leapt across and made herself some new friends... Pirate Dog!!!

I didn't really do many other touristy, photography-ing things while I was there, but it was nice. And there were pictures of punting. And yes, somebody did fall in, and no, it wasn't me- can you imagine me swimming in that dress?!

A new adventure!

It looks like this curious Sam will be spending the summer in Turkey!

I will update with some more details when I have them, but it looks like I could be seeing some sun, which will make a pleasant change from the English weather!

Ohhhh yeah!!! I am looking forward to this! I could certainly do with warmth.

So almost in Wales. Swindon. I'm pretty sure that is near Wales, but Wikipedia assures me it is sin England.

Train cancellations are certainly one way to see a country. Ironically faster than my original journey plan too.
