As the Facebook generation overtakes and a relatively occupied start to the new year, my first post to Livejournal of 2011...

Back from work in time for New Year, commenced at Vagabonds Goth night, a few days in Wiltshire early January as the weather for much outdoors at home seemed less than favourable. 
A short spell through Oxfordshire taking in the Cherwell Valley at Heyford, back to Rousham and an afternoon in Oxford.

Back to work as February started and briefly back home before another few days in Oxford.
London tonight for a Ball put on by The Secret Garden Party at Battersea Power Station...

A brief couple of days at home relatively busy (and trying to get out of night-shift).
A consignment of irrigation gear arrived at home, ready for late spring and summer down at the field (ironic as it's just had another winter flood inundation).
Also a bundle of M111 apple root-stocks for grafting some hedgerow apple twigs collected in Wiltshire. I suspect these are from discarded apple cores, the trees are in exposed areas on the edge of Salisbury Plain and have quite edible apples well into winter...

Quite dismayed by the content of the Public Bodies Bill and it's enabling powers to dispose of the estate of The Forestry Commission. Don't be distracted by the postponement of the sale of 15% of Forestry Commission land - see http://saveourforests.co.uk
Local to home there is a local save Delamere group on Facebook and with their own website too...

A Consultant check-up at the end of last week regarding the Crohns - reasonably stable at present, but  a minor discussion regarding the Pentasa granules I take to try and keep it under control.

A pleasant train ride into Oxford through a sunny Cherwell Valley and relaxed lunch in The Grand Cafe, before London tonight.

The next couple of days will be pleasantly relaxed.

Thank you for alerting me to this (although l've also been following your blog). I am appalled by this proposal, and equally by the planned cuts to public libraries in the UK (which a LJ librarian friend in London has been posting about). Both proposals are horrific.

The threat to Libraries and Citizens Advice Bureaux and National Health Service changes are an erosion to what should be a level and civilised society
