Down to work

So there will be a bit of a review of the trip to Germany soon, for now I’m getting on with writing an essay for the first module of my course (ok – apart from writing this I’m working, and apart from the fact I’ve had a couple of Friday lunchtime pints too. Oops)


Manchester central library seems to be a good place to work and get things done. Previously I’d not only been on the ground floor and not ventured upstairs. I was slightly surprising by the grandness of the main reading room. It’s not in my opinion as good as the central library in Liverpool but it’s still pretty impressive. I also like the colour of the lighting – reminds me of going to the library as a kid. The majority of the people on the free computers seem to be either surfing facebook or youtube. Scholarly types that they are.

Despite sometimes feeling that studying is a drag – I’m really enjoying the intensive research about one topic. I’m particularly enjoying some of the lobbying by the Carrier Bag Consortium and Plastics industry about Plastic bag taxes. Although they do have some good positive points – most of the spin is hilarious. I mean they say a good way to reuse your plastic bag is sitting on a wet bench. Granted you can’t do that with a paper bag but is this something that really needs to be written down!?

It’s been a while since I’ve put a sketch on here:


Have a good weekend!
