Day 86 #100HappyDays: Oxford blues

June 5th, 2014, 1pm

The rolling English countryside, as viewed from a train window, on my way to Oxford for work. The sky and clouds were looking beautiful today. I spent the journey thinking up ways to eat my rice and chicken salad without any cutlery! I had bought lunch at the station for a nice picnic on the train but had forgotten to pick up cutlery. It’s quite an important invention and nothing else quite works. The drinks trolley guy only had a wooden stick for stirring tea or coffee!

And it was nice to be back in Oxford. I had two friends working there about ten years’ ago and I used to spend a good many weekends hanging out there so I know it well. And the venue today took me along Banbury Road and North Parade, two places I know really well!

Adrian, Paul, Christine and Jessica said thanks.
