Back to the blog

The COVID lockdown does strange things to people. In my case, it has allowed me to work down my to-do list towards the line that says Blog!

Started when I was teaching part-time for the Open University, between writing a PhD and visiting museums with a new baby in tow, it inevitably dropped off the list over the past decade.
