We are trying something new this year. A Three Thing Game during the week and synchronised with the Summer Bash. Worst case we get the summer to recover. Best case it should be fun. All the action takes place over the 30th and 31st of May. We have a Thing Auction at 1:00 pm on Thursday the 30th of May, a Summer Bash starting at 4:30 in the afternoon of that day, and judging and presentations starting at 3:00 pm on Friday 31st. You can find out more about Three Thing Game here and Summer Bash here. With a bit of luck, I might find you at both.
We had our Finalists BBQ today. This is pretty much the last free food that students get out of us (except perhaps for the sandwiches at the Degree Ceremony reception in July). Plenty of folks turned up to avail themselves of the various forms of cooked meat (which were all delicious) and talk about old times.
There are some more pictures on Flickr, you can find them here.
Thanks to Warren for paying for it all.
We’ve been to Thwaite Gardens Open Day a few years in a row. We had the best weather a couple of years ago, last year was a bit iffy and we weren’t too hopeful about this year. But in the end it was nice and bright, and the sun even made a guest appearance. The Friends of Thwaite Gardens spend all year making the place look lovely and then we come along, take photographs and have tea and scones.
Thwaite Student Hall. If you live here you get all this loveliness thrown in.
You wouldn’t believe this was right in the middle of suburbia.
Some plant or other (gardening was never my strong point).
We bought some plants for our garden, and we’ll be back next year. If you live in the area you really should go along.
