Too sunny a day

It's a lovely day today. A great combination of bright sun and a slight nip in the air. I wasn't going to go into town, but since the dp walked into work, I accompanied him. It does mean that progress on the report is even slower, but what the heck - I needed the walk.

I manged to catch the last part of Harry Thompson's Penguins Stopped Play serial on Radio 4. A member of Captain Scott's XI, he played cricket on every Continent with the team. It was very sad, as Thompson ended by saying he was in hospital with lung cancer. He had never smoked. Unfortunately the cancer was inoperable and it was being treated by chemotherapy. But he died - Sarah blogged about his book recently, and also about the historical fiction he wrote.
