I have a lot of pictures to show you this month, so there will be rather less talk. The big event of June was the Gaudy at my old Oxford college, Somerville. http://www.some.ox.ac.uk If you are unfamiliar with the term, it means a reunion of graduates for a garden party, formal dinner and various other festivities. (In case you’re wondering, ‘gaudy’ derives from the Latin verb gaudeo = I rejoice.) This year the eleven matriculating years invited included my own, for the first time in about six years. As most of my college friends live a few hundred miles south of here, I don’t see them often, so this was going to be a wonderful opportunity to meet.
