What a good weekend

Dom and J-M came back from Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon. Unfortunately I couldn’t go with Rob to collect them from the airport as a couple of Dom’s colleagues needed a lift to the station. Dom’s presentations went very well . J-M went along to support her. It’s so nice when they visit, there is always plenty to talk about. They found time to explore Edinburgh. Taste the food (especially fish and chips) and soak up some of the rain. They bought back short bread with (Belgian) chocolate chips – needless to say that has all disappeared.

Dom came back with a copy of The Time Traveller’s Wife and told me that I could read it first as long as I don’t talk to her about it until after she has read it too. So far it looks as if it is going to be a good read…

This term they are both teaching: Dom will be teaching statistics to 1st year psychology students and J-M is teaching economics to students at an agricultural lycée.

Olivier is going to Bordeaux tomorrow to see about an apartment; I hope he likes it. They are very hard to find in Bordeaux at this time of the year. He starts term in about 2 weeks.

This is where Dom presented her work.  The picture comes from Wikipedia (where else?)

That's a cool looking building!

I loved The Time Traveler's Wife. I shall say no more than that. I hope it works for you too!

So glad they were able to enjoy our rain.

Clearly I have not been visiting Edinburgh often enough, I have no idea what or where this building is...

Véronique: I can't put the book down! It's great.

Caroline: I think they enjoyed the rain as it has been very hot here. The building is at Edinburgh Napier University. Dom said that they needed to close the blinds as outside can be distracting for the audience
