I’m trying to save up money for my Nuffield scholarship travels, so to prevent myself being tempted to go out in London this weekend I came up to Nottingham to visit my parents (I’m being so tight, I even travelled here by coach. The least said about that the better).

Anyway, it’s always nice to get out of the Big Smoke and into the countryside. Yesterday I headed up to Crich in Derbyshire to do a spot of hiking. Glorious sunshine, blue skies, trees covered in blossom and woods filled with bluebells and the scent of wild garlic – Thomas Hardy (or indeed, Miss Pickering) couldn’t have come up with anything more bucolic and twee.


It seems spring hasn’t only sprung in the East Midlands this weekend, either. Twitter chum CyberDoyle filmed this video of her cows springing about in the sunshine after being indoors all winter.

Gob of the Wash may bring you dogs dressed as inmates, but I reckon dancing cows and banjo music win hands down:
