The life and adventures of a mildly dotty old bird.
Friday, 8 October 2021
If I'm on my own in the town two of my favourite things to do are to visit the library and the museum. I can never leave the first without a pile of books and the latter without having unearthed a new gem or taken in one of their ever changing exhibitions. The library reopened some months ago, but much to my sadness the museum has remained shut since the first lockdown and the reopening date has been put back several times. Thankfully that day has finally come and it opened its doors once more last weekend. Today was my first chance to go. During its closure the team have taken the chance to empty the cabinets and completely restructure the displays. Perhaps some will be unhappy with the results of this radical overhaul, but I, for one, have embraced the changes. It has freshened the whole place up and breathed new life into it. Naturally I was my usual snap happy self, but I shall limit myself to just the one here. Shards of stunning Roman glass found in London.
