For the couple of months there’s been a
T-Rex in Glasgow – one of the most complete skeletons in the world. Of course, we left it until the final day to visit.
Not so much a feldgang as an overview of our holiday. Some glorious skies and ancient artefacts. Callanais:
Dun Carloway Broch
Norse chess pieces
Terns feeding at Port Ness
A teddy for a not-yet-born
Ballachulish – on the way home
As I walked up the path to work today I looked to my right, and noticed some more flowers. Some are cultivated, the others are native. All are lovely.
Geraniums do well in our garden. Here’s three – the first two are bought, but still have a natural look. The third grows in abundance. The flowers are smaller, but they are so pretty.
The lion and the unicorn were fighting for the crown …
A pause in my day to think about today’s Feldgang. The noise of the stonemasons reminded me that this staircase is being repaired.
The lion, of course, stands for England; the unicorn for Scotland.
Yet again we need to fight. While there is an imbalance of power, our two nations will never be friends. I think this might be beyond repair.

Between the main road and Professors’ Square is a pathway with wild flowers growing on either side of it. I always appreciate them, today I stopped and took a few pics with my phone
Today’s feldgang – I nipped out to see if a colleague was in, and took a shortcut back through our Uni chapel.
I always feel guilty doing this – and more so today as I quickly took out my phone and took these pics.
A quick trip over to Arran at the weekend with Flora McPuffin. She had a lovely time seeing all the diverse birds over there.
A pair of pheasants
A shelduck and a swan
An oyster catcher
National Unicorn Day. Yes, really. Some of you might know that the unicorn’s Scotland’s national animal. And in these dark, uncertain days, I think we need a miracle to see us out of Brexit, out of te UK, out of austerity.
Here’s our national animal standing proud on the steps of our Uni chapel.
Happy Unicorn day, all
'Revisiting our educational history might encourage us to question some of the prevailing orthodoxies of our time...Perhaps we should ask why there are no comparable radical voices in Scottish education today.'
