Cornwall, CP Snow, Edith Sitwell and Lucy Diamond

Delightful holiday with Son and Grandchildren at family house in Cornwall.  Kayaking, running, a big sandcastle, surfing but alas no sailing. Came back with filthy cold and have to travel to DC and Harvard soon so again no time to blog.

Met "Lucy Diamond" at the launch of her latest novel The Beach Cafe which I finished on the train on my way back. Glad it's doing well. Read CP Snow's The New Men which is about the UK experience of the development of the Atomic Bomb, and started Victoria Glendenning's excellent biography of Edith Sitwell, a poet whom I greatly admire.
