The end of the academic year is upon us.
Last week was the last of the U3A talks, an overview of the Indian Mutiny.
This week was the last of the Uni of York's Lifelong Learning course on the Emergence of the USA as a Superpower, 1914 - 1941, excellently given by lecturer David Beeston. This was rather like a very good BBC history series, full of interesting facts and figures which go into my brain and add to my general understanding of history and help me fit my studies in French history into context.
Does this mean I will have a carefree summer to watch England v India test series. Regrettably, no. We are to move house in early August. We are to move to Nether Poppleton, outside York's outer ring road, still within the City of York but much closer to my partner's horse stable. Whilst I write this we have strangers crashing around this house, looking into all the nooks and crannies.
Oh well - I could have a day out at Scarborough tomorrow - War Torn is on, not a show I have been to before - and sunshine is forecast.
