>Went to see Shared Experience’s production of Diane Samuels‘ play Kindertransport at The Hampstead Theatre the other evening. I’m working on a schools project over in Tottenham which uses the play as a starting point. It’s fascinating to talk about the play with the students – to see how they miss some of the conventions (and are therefore occasionally ‘lost’), but still engage with it’s themes and relate them to their own experiences. It’s going to be an exciting couple of months.

I’ve also started work at Birkbeck – so far, so good.

I’ve decided to keep on working in Birmingham – the mortgage you understand.

I’ve been ill with a mystery virus (hat over it’s eyes, stays in the shadows, whistles tunelessly). It’s knocked my attempt at getting fit. I must get back out on the bike soon.
