Prague,Cambridge and Jess

The weather is much cooler in England this weekend, but I had a great time with my kid regardless.
Time marches forward.
It seems just yesterday I spent my afternoons chasing after her trying to keep her out of trouble.
She's growing up.
My days with her now are full of little girl news, (horses, school and friends) and I've come to realise that sometimes my visits correspond with "friends stuff".
For a ten year old this presents a dilemma.
She wants to see her dad but also wants to do things with her friends.
I'm sure I'm not the first dad to feel a tug at the heart strings over this.

I've been quite busy lately and am just about to get another flight as I write .
Apart from hanging out with Jess in London I've been in Prague and Cambridge.
Black beer (tasting more like Stella than Guinness) is one of the attractions of of the Czech Republic. Prague has changed so much over the past 10 years.
It's become a slick destination for package tours and stag weekends, though there's still plenty of charm.
I've taken so many pictures of Cambridge that I'm not sure its worth posting more
but given I don't have much to say today, I'll put them up anyway.
Dawn is a great time to take photographs anywhere but I think Cambridge is most interesting when there's no one around.
Coming back to the city conjures up surprisingly few memories.
I lived here for 4 years but don't think I ever really felt at home.
Not sure why that is, but there you have it.
Stay well everyone.
