I am now settled in my placement, doing Monday mornings, Wednesday all day and Friday mornings. The computer I have been put on is very slow, but apparently it is going to be replaced soon, so this is only a temporary frustration.
On Tuesday night I had the good fortune to attend a talk by Patricia Fara, a well known historian of science. Having written a book which compresses 4,000 years of history into 400 pages (and which I recommend anyone to read – it si excellent), for this talk she was then compressing that into 40 minutes.
I decided that as there was little walking involved, I would use this to give a new pair of shoes some serious wearing. Unfortunately this proved a misjudgement, and my heels are still padded with a double layer of plaster in consequence.
