Oxonmoot ~ The Report (Second attempt)

I have been very busy with my portfolio of which more at another point and so haven’t got round to doing the report thing until now. But since I want a break from learning and teaching and not being able to find the references that I want to find, here’s my Oxonmoot report instead.

Hobbitish Endeavours )

Got back from the Fellowship Festival earlier today. Very tired... Trains were delayed as usual.

Tomorrow my new job starts, and the Marquis is off until Friday to work back up north. :-( I shall miss him.

Thursday [ profile] tuemi arrives with friend for a visit.

Busy time clearly not over yet, but I shall endeavour to start filling in some gaps soon.

Today I returned from a fantabulous day at [ profile] pellegrina. Even the 95-minute delay on the train home hasn't managed to dent my feeling of satisfaction...

So what did we actually do?

On Friday morning [ profile] the_marquis and I spectacularly failed to missed out train to the South by about 30 seconds. Read more... ) Suffice it to say, we caught the next train without hitch, it got to our destination almost without delay, and for some reason known only unto those who plan the journeys of trains, it took an hour less to get from home to destination on this train, than it would have done on the ‘correct’ train.

[ profile] parrot_knight picked us up at the station and while the Marquis dashed off to the building society, the Knight and I parked the car. We met up again a little later and had a cup of tea in a café that has opened in the place in which I bought my favourite pair of shoes (to date; now sadly deceased). Odd experience, that!

The rest of the evening… )

Saturday started fairly slowly, and once we’d made it into town, the Marquis had to rush off to the committee meeting of Society T’s big cousin. The Knight and I were charged with a quest for some latex for hobbit feet. We found some in the end…

Soon after the latex had been acquired the Knight and I also parted ways: he took [ profile] foradan to his flat to help him sort out his computer, while I headed off to meet Viala and [ profile] eudesia for a long afternoon of chatting. I also saw my godson, his little sister and his big brother in the process of the visit, which was rather nice!

Talking with Viala and Eudesia )

Then, in the evening, took place the event for which we had travelled more than half-way down the country: Society T’s Banquet )which was not only a great event in its own right, but also provided a chance for many of the old members of Society T to meet each other and for us all to meet our very worthy successors! Eglerio!

Sunday’s journey home was remarkably straightforward, despite the replacement bus service which the Marquis and I had been dreading as two people who were a little over-tired and delicate after the previous evening’s excesses ;-). Once at home, I quickly prepared the lecture-notes for tomorrow’s sessions in Lancaster. And then I spent ages writing up this report of the weekend. Time for posting and bed, methinks…

Today was my first day teaching in Lancaster after the break. It was actually surprisingly nice, despite the digustingly early start.
