We spent the long weekend taking Matt back to Warwick and Simon to buy his gown and mortar board in Oxford. Matt’s house is pretty good as student houses go but it was a little quiet and a little cold. Going a week early into a half empty house has, I think, left Matt feeling a little homesick and at a loose end. I think this will all change when term starts properly as there is a great deal of work to get through, including a project. Matt’s new house mates seem nice but perhaps a little quiet. I think Matt likes to surround himself with noisier people!
