This week spring really arrived in Cambridge. The sun shone, the temperature rose and the blackbirds that nest in our garden have been digging up the lawn and flower beds looking for worms. At work, the hares have been racing around outside my window and I’ve seen the green woodpecker almost every day.
It was a great week to have a day off work. After a late-ish night of bowling, dinner and cinema on Wednesday Mr M and I wandered into town along the river. Cambridge is particularly beautiful in spring and at the moment the riverbanks are covered in daffodils and the trees are in full of bloom.
We ate sushi in the sun outside Kings College Chapel, went to the park, drank red wine and ate medium rare Chateaubriand. In the evening we went to Ed Byrne’s show at the Corn Exchange, entertaining but not as laugh out loud funny as some comedians I’ve seen. All in all it was a great day off.
