Have a couple of days to spend with my brother before the Scary job interview on monday. It's cold here but the blossom is out, how lovely. England does early spring quite well, in fact, when the weather is fine. My brother is a little stressed but we went out for a lovely dinner last night and had a companionable morning cleaning out the fridge together today. Of course, my timing in making this trip being determined by the interview I have rather spring it on him and he is inevitably already rather busy with dissertions for his masters' in English Literature, his masked ball this evening and his visitors who arrive tomorrow to be shown around the Cotswolds. Still it is so great to catch up with him, we always laugh and laugh and laugh together, and we understand the way each other think so well.
Good news: the conference paper proposal I shared with you some time ago has been accepted, yay for me. I've never been to Swansea before either, what fun (maybe). Now I just have to write the damn thing! In fact, my other conference paper proposal for the conference in Northampton this summer has also been accepted. I have been to Northampton before though.
