I spent the weekend hanging out with my friend Caroline in Oxford. We’re so different, and yet get on well. Another reminder of how diverse the world is and yet how beautiful it is. Caroline had this whole little list of stuff she thought I’d love… genuinely one of the sweetest, most thoughtful people I’ve meet in a long time. I fear she may be a little disappointed when she visits Glasgow next month – I’m not as good with planning things in advance! But hey, she likes me for me – even when it is last minute, blow-with-the-wind me! We saw a couple of great exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, including Mapplethorpe’s Polaroid exhibit, and ate a lot of great food. Our mutual friend Cat also popped over and joined us on Sunday… love celebrating friendships over food!

A few snapshots of a lovely little break…

    Nice pics. The bridge reminds me of the Bridge of Sighs in Venezia.

    @ Matt: the bridge is a miniturised replica of the Bridge of Sighs – couldn’t remember it’s name until you said it!

    Looks like a nice place, I plan to head to Oxford later in the year, so will have to get recommendation from you
