I'm on a train on the way to my favourite museum, the Abbey Museum of Art &Archaeology and I'm so excited!

I'm taking signed books for their gift shop, doing a talk today and will get to see Senior Curator, Michael Strong's new book Glorious Glass about the stained glass in the Abbey Church. His book was released very recently, but I couldn't attend the opening as we were Covid tracing a case where, while not a close contact, might have come in contact and would thereby potentially risk infecting the Abbey community, many of whom are older folk.

I really wanted to attend, but it was better for me to isolate from social functions. I'll see everyone today instead, which will be wonderful!

I'm so looking forward to it!
