>Sitting on the fence

>We’ve had a new fence put up. Apparently there’s a world shortage of fences, so P jumped at the chance to order one. It’s very nice in a fencey sort of way. I’ve tried leaning on it and it seems to work.

We went to see a preview of A Matter of Life and Death at The National last night. It’s a big, big show. It will be interesting to see what the world thinks of it (note: 2+ hours without an interval – take mints).

I start teaching at Birkbeck this week – looking forward to it (in a nervous kind of way).
