11 days to go, busy, busy, busy …

11 days until we fly and we are flat-out with preparations. I am busy writing three conference talks (a 5 min one, a 12 min one and a 45 min one) and helping my academic colleagues and students with their talks. There is a large group of us going to the Aarhus and Rotterdam conferences and we are all giving at least two papers each. So we are frantically working out what we want to say, making slides, practising and timing our talks, and getting posters printed. Normally I would keep working on the talks as I am travelling to the conference or even after the conference starts (at night in the hotel), but I want to finish them before I leave so I have as much time as possible free for Oliver. Tomorrow I will post more about academic conferences.

For now, here is a link to a live web cam of Tower Bridge in London. It’s pretty cool. At any time of the day or night you can log on and see what is happening in London and on the Bridge. Here is what it looked like a moment ago: at around 10.30am in Sydney but 1:30am in London.Screen shot 2013-06-04 at 10.25.02 AM

Oliver and I may well be standing on this bridge if you log on to the Tower Bridge webcam in 11 or 12 days time. We will be the ones waving at you!
