More Annual Events!

Last night was the annual Summer Concert in St. John's College.
I am lucky to have a friend working in the college and the Ladies Who Dine put on our fineries and went off to a great evening with classical music.

Two of us rode our bikes to the event.
I can confirm that it is NOT easy biking in a dress and trying to preserve a minimum of modesty... ;-)

The concert ended with wine and canapes being served as well as the most delicious tarts... yum!
I tell myself it isn't all bad to have a tart (or two) or a profiterole (or two) given it is only once a year...!

The evening as always was rounded off with watching the fireworks from the May Ball at Trinity College, but I felt I had to go home earlier as Our Boy was on his own. It took us a little while to find our ways out of the college, so by the time we were on the bikes the fireworks had started.

It was almost magical riding the bike (on the pavement and with no lights...)
with the fireworks going off around me!


  1. that sounds sooo fantastic, a little sophisticated and veeery sportive - riding the bike while wearing a dressing gown... (haha) wish i could have been there…
    so hey - where will you go tomorrow? royal ascot? maybe i could fall into line…

  2. Hej!

    Åh, om jag inte tar fel bor du i vackra Cambridge?! Jag har själv studerat en kort tid i Oxford för mångar år sedan och även kort besökt Cambridge en gång - det är verkligen något speciellt med dessa historiska studentstäder och alla vackra collegebyggnader!

    Jag gissar att vi har en hel del erfarenheter gemensamt!

    Tack för din hälsning hos mig!

    Varma hälsningar, Helena, The Swenglish Home

  3. Høres ut som en flott konsert du var på. Omgivelsene må ha vært med på å få den rette stemningen.

    Ha, ha, jeg måtte le av deg på sykkelen! For et syn!

    Ønsker deg en deilig onsdagskveld, Mette!
