More photographs from last Sunday

My stint at the Summer School is over, the Origins 3 conference has finished and the friend who was staying with me has flown out to China for a month. Life has finally returned to normal! I'm busy around the house today and the rain makes the outside world a distinctly unattractive option anyway, so here are some more photographs from last Sunday (just within my self-imposed seven day limit).
