Mini Adventures #1

At Cambridge we have a bizarre way of planning out our time.

Instead of doing Monday-Sunday weeks like the rest of the world, our weeks start on Thursdays.

Today marks the beginning of Week Eight, the last week of term (and therefore the end of my penultimate term ever - hooray!)

Here's ten snapshots from my iPhone that have put a smile on my face in the past fortnight.

1) I produced an opera, Mozart's Don Giovanni, at the end of February, set at the end of World War II. Here's our set designer Rob looking on admiringly as the lighting team fly one of the dirigibles!

2) Painting the Don Giovanni set on the Sidgwick site in the sunshine.

3) A shaggy haired Alex does his best model squint outside Andrew Northrop's Butchers, where we picked up our rack of lamb.

4) On our way back from the butcher's we discovered Mill Road Feast - a tri-monthly festival/farmer's market hybrid. Definitely going to drop by in June!

5) Caramel Snack-a-Jacks. I lived off these in show week and am still obsessed. Perfect for nibbling on absent-mindedly when you're doing an essay!

6) I saw this jumper in Topshop and fell in love with it immediately. It's a bit art historian-y, my favourite colour, and only £29!

7) Trinity College Cambridge in the sunshine.

8) Pancake Day selfies.

9) OCD housemates devising a new spice organisation system.

10) Getting stuck into Umberto Eco's The Name of the Rose for World Book Day today!

Happy World Book Day everyone - hope you're all having fun being bookworms today too!


  1. Congratulations on producing an opera! That is seriously incredible! And I LOVE the photo of the blimp <3
