Having worked as an electronic production editor for science and academic publishers in Oxford, I now work as a Web and Digital Media Officer for a top modern university.

I had a photo of you and your brother, in my wallet during that holiday,

Flora Thompson
“There Laura spent many happy hours, supposed to be picking fruit for jam, but for the better part of the time reading or dreaming. One corner, overhung by a Samson tree and walled in with bushes and flowers, she called her 'green study'.”
Flora Thompson, Lark Rise to Candleford

Flora Thompson
“When I am dead and in my head
And all my bones are are rotten,
Take this book and think of me
And mind I'm not forgotten.”

“Perhaps I'd be happier if I had a boring job like Filly, but then I wouldn't have any time to myself. I waste so much time and then I resent it when I don't have time to waste.”
