And breathe.

I’ve started half a hundredweight of new posts recently and not had the time to finish them off. Hence, a quick review of the last month or so.

Election came and went, and I don’t know if I got carried away by the touchy-feeliness of it all but I don’t hate it yet. It depresses me slightly that the main policies that the government have announced so far are mostly significantly to the left of Labour: hopefully this will change if a good candidate gets in as leader (we’re talking not tainted too much by Blair/Brown affiliations). All fairly good on green things, social justice (even with IDS), but I’m holding my breath slightly for George ‘Evil’ Osbourne’s input – then we’ll see the true face of the decentralisation of state that’s promised.

Allotment is looking slightly choked with overgrown grass at the moment, but not for long; this week it’ll be getting a strim. Firstfruits have duly been picked, some peppery and multicoloured radishes. Squashes, potatoes, corn, lettuce, peppers, peas and beans are all on their way.

Workload is crammed high right now: I’ve just had my first exam since 2003 (it was fine, I think, although I distrust the Breton marking it); all my bumph from my internship is due in on Thursday (a good experience overall, and pretty interesting in the context of my course); currently mired in dissertation literature review, but it’s no bad thing – this morning I’ll be biking up to Wood Green Library to read Marx, Hobsbawm, Stedman Jones and more Marxist history – class discrimination is no dead thing, apparently.

I’m Leaving Home: one housemate is leaving, so the rest of us are moving too – out of Noel Park (on the subject of which, I drove around the sister estate (and related subject to my dissertation) Queen’s Park last night – entirely cuter and better kept up than NP), probably to Tottenham or the ‘Stow. Major announcements imminent.

  1. I’m sorry to hear you’re leaving Noel Park. BTW Noel Park is on the English Heritage at risk register again this year.
