There is no denying it - Christmas is on its way!
Number One Son will be home from Uni next weekend!
We just had the Departmental Pub Quiz - a wonderful evening of staff and students chatting, drinking and thrashing their brains over our dumb questions.
Parcels have also been arriving:
Must be Italian! An Italian who can't spell?
The weather has been quite nasty too - this part of the country has been cold, but other parts have had storms and floods.
Nice photos, though!

Tonight see's our town's Christmas Tree lights being switched on. You might remember me talking about last year's tree, which was branded as the worst in the country....
We have been promised a good one this year - according to the news paper a building company has paid £8,000 for it. Probably going down tonight to have a look...
Watch this space!
