It must be summer, the weekends are filling up. And not just with gardening, although I am about to go outside and plant some Cosmos so obscure they don't even have a printed packet. I know it's late, but the weather's been too grim for planting. Here's hoping that the late spring leads to a lazy summer and that autumn forgets to turn up till it's nearly winter.

So, next weekend it's Cambridge for a solstice party -- we're crashing overnight so could potentially see people on Saturday or Sunday if anyone is around? And any recommendations for unmissable things happening next weekend in Cambridge also most welcome. We're already doing one (the party) but there is always room for more.

London the following weekend where we will observe ART in the day and eat lunch somewhere. This is mostly to see my sister (plus neiblings) in the evening, but again, any suggestions most welcome.

After that, things get a bit stranger. I'm going to do a day of Tank Fest with timscience, and I'm heading to Hampon Court flower show with tinyjo. Because I like tanks AND flowers.

I also quite fancy catching one of the Malmaison roof films this year though buying in advance is probably asking for a monsoon. Also, everything I want to see if midweek which makes it not very suitable for any out-of-towners who might want to watch Life of Pi or Labyrinth with me.

Any chance your trip to Cambridge will take you down Mill Road at all? -- Because (if and only if you are going down that way anyway) there's a shop called Al-Amin just near Devonshire Road where I got some Turkish mixed spice (Karışık baharat)... I don't know where else to get any (clearly, thousands of places in the UK, but I don't know 'em): Juggzy promised to get me some from Al-Amin, but it's awkward reminding people to do favours for you that they've forgotten...

We went that way last time, and it looks well worth a visit so I'll give it a go if we go by!

Well, provided it's not out of your way, I shall be much indebted - thanks! :)

Hi Richard - I did try to get it for you but they looked at me blankly. I'm sorry I forgot to tell you that I tried.
10th Jun, 2013 20:23 (UTC)
Ooh thanks -- did think it was a bit of a long shot....
10th Jun, 2013 21:15 (UTC)
Ahh -- never mind, and thanks for trying. Odd that they had it that one time, though, and annoying that they then failed to have it again! Hmph, I say -- but thanks, and apologies for casting nasturtiums :)

I'd be interested in the roof films. Midweek is doable for me now teaching is over for the summer - though the option to stay overnight would be appreciated. I might be out of the country though!

Life of Pi is Fri Jul 12th, Labyrinth is Thu Jul 4th -- er, and I'm in Manchester on the 4th, so that's out actually. So it'd be Pi on the 12th, I think?
9th Jun, 2013 09:55 (UTC)
Done! Life of Pi on the 12th July is now in my diary. Excellent!

If you fancy bobbing in or meeting up at some point, we're around for the weekend. Jesus college still has the big metal dinosaurs (they're pretty permanent) but I'm not aware of anything in particualr happening at the weekend.
10th Jun, 2013 21:08 (UTC)
We could nip by around tea time, like we did last year?

P.S. The internet is suggesting that the dinosaurs have decamped to London!
12th Jun, 2013 12:16 (UTC)
Re: dinosaurs!
That's fine (that was the Saturday if I remember rightly).

If you fancy some kitten fettling, I'm working on Saturday but could be At Home to select visitors on Sunday morning. Although I'm pretty much on the number 1 bus route, I am quite a way out of the centre, so perfectly understand if you can't make it!
10th Jun, 2013 21:11 (UTC)
Would kind of around lunchtime Sunday suit? We could see you on the way out of town (leading to the inevitable sequel - do you have parking nearby?)
12th Jun, 2013 19:31 (UTC)
That would be great - there is reasonable parking nearby to me, in the community centre car park. Right next to my house can be a bit of a problem, but as I say, there is this carpark at the corner of Campkin Road and Arbury Road that always has free space. My house is about 200 m from there.
