An annoying, potentially catastrophic, but expected thing happened today. In the interests of not moping about that, I will list the things that were excellent that happened today:

  1. Excellent meeting with many potential collaborators, which is likely to lead to exciting work stuff!

  2. Tea with [livejournal.com profile] doseybat, who I haven't seen in person for ages but is still as lovely and interesting in person as online, and that was super!

  3. Our toilet flush sheared off last night, which wasn't great, but the eternally lovely and ingenious CRI bought a replacement flush mechanism and fitted it while I was out, and now the flush works better than it has in months and I am very grateful to him.

  4. I got to prance around cherry trees in blossom (with comfrey growing underneath) looking at bees and got some good pictures too, I think, and saw a pair of yaffles and a jay and parakeets.

So on balance, I enjoyed today despite politics.

Yay it was awesome to see you! I think you are the only person who both reads this blog and is a work colleague! It also sounded like we have usefully complementary work knowledge and I hope to be able to email you and ask stuff in the future. Hope the Indian meal moths from Leyton are doing well, I think about them :)

Yes, they are doing fine, thanks! I need to give them some TLC but so far they are mercifully free from nasty psocids, unlike the other culture I had, which got so bad I pretty much lost the culture.

And yeah, happy to be e-mailed anytime and chat about useful things!

We have awful stuff going on here politically too. Best advice I heard was if you can't change it, you should let it pass round you and remember you're living through history. It'snot that comforting, but it's true enough :D

Your good things sound really good though. That's what matters.
