Happy Easter!

On Thursday we had a lunchtime seminar at the university by Stanley Prusiner, who won a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his work on prions.  That makes three Nobel Prize winners I’ve seen talk, as Tim Hunt gave a presentation at the MC2 conference I attended in Manchester, and Paul Nurse was the invited speaker at my graduation!

Then I flew back into the UK on Friday, bright and early in the morning.  Dad’s been in New York for the last week, and we met at Luton Airport to catch the train home together.  He’s posher than me, and gets to fly business class, so I met him in the business lounge for a quick breakfast before we caught our train.  Nice to see how the other half lives!

We spent today at Patchings preparing for the bear fair tomorrow.  We’ve never had so many stallholders before so we’ve had to expand into a second building!  We’re all set up and ready to go, so hopefully tomorrow will be a good day.
