(Summary blog only. Last full blog was Day 0368).
Spent most of the day indoors.
Firstly, for most of the morning, writing my paper on the Ice Ages for the Geol. Soc. Just have to do the Conclusions now, then it’s finished. Then I had a video discussion with former colleagues at the Natural History Museum in London about the future of the human race. Some interesting views, ranging from the optimist end of the spectrum to the fatalist. I’m somewhere in the middle, but closer to the optimistic end. Then I went straight into more de-bugging of this website (an upgrade to PHP ver 8 seems to have helped) and then another video call – this time with my friend in Texas.
Once that was done, I dashed down to the library to return at last a book that has taken me five months to read (renewed seven times in the meantime) and dropped in at the Chemist. By the time I’d finished that, Val was home so I made a quick beans on toast with salad dinner, and now it’s time to hot foot it down to Portmarnock for my Spanish class. Just time to rehearse my deberes one more time!
