Light rain this morning, but will that stop me? Ha! I laugh at light rain! 13° (but felt lower, as I was distinctly wet), not as limber, tweaked a knee partway through, satisfactory pace, and eventually got home after two more miles.
Nate will come to Oxford for an academic conference tomorrow, so we’ll have a chance to catch up with him between sessions and days. I was going to say that I hadn’t been turned down for a job in a while, but then I remembered that I put my name in as a dark horse (a really, really dark horse) (a horse so dark ‘You can hardly make out its shape… light just seems to fall into it!’) for a post, and was advised yesterday that my application was unsuccessful. No surprise there.
Given the number of deployment officers and HR personnel in the Church of England who have wished me ‘every success in your future career search’ in the past year, I’m obliged to conclude that they aren’t very good at wishing.
