Boring title I know – never mind.
In the morning: Toby went off to play squash for the first time at York RI. He’s stopping playing football, so decided to find a new sport and squash fits the bill well – local, indoor, so all year round, fast and energetic. He had a really good session and is going again on Tuesday.
John, Rose and I went down to Bishopthorpe Road for shopping and sweets. We bought back buns. I ate mine with Cindy while listening to BBC Radio 4 comedy – the “Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain” playing Smells like Teen Spirit. Very funny.
PM: J, R & I to university for Einstein Day, about Rockets. Set off stomp rockets and water rockets, and watched a solid fuel rocket go up about 100m. Displays about the planets and telescope (we brought home a make your own cardboard telescope) and two using liquid nitrogen to demonstrate super conductivity. Fun.
Toby put his remote control car back together – still not sure if it works though.
Evening: Rose and I went for a walk in the twilight/dark – across the Millennium Bridge, up the other side of the river to Skeldergate Bridge and then home along Bishopthorpe Road. Saw bats and had a good chat.
