Back in office: summer 2021

After a year and a half of very new normal, summer 2021 was pretty perfect. I mean, the weather wasn’t summery, being around a lot of strangers (and even friends) felt odd, and there seemed an awful lot of pressure to make this The Best Summer Ever.

I’m pretty grateful for a lot of small moments this summer.

Here are some of those moments:

  • Moved to Oxford and filled a moderate-sized house with an unwise number of plants
  • Climbed Helvellyn and Haystacks in the Lake District
  • Ate food outside with friends
  • Ate food inside with family
  • Watched campfires
  • Drank gin on hot evenings and cold nights from between clinking ice and wedges of citrus
  • Cycled through sunny mornings and afternoons
