Visakha Puja, & Lindsay's birthday

Parliament has been in recess since my last post, and returns next Monday, June 6.

Last Sunday I travelled up to the Forest Hermitage from Marylebone in a bus hired by Thai supporters, for the celebration of Visakha Puja (Buddha Day). It was an impressive feat of organisation and all went off smoothly, including a Thai meal provided by the supporters. I chatted to some of the students from Warwick University including two from China.

It was Lindsay's birthday last Thursday, and JW accompanied us to a fairly new tapas restaurant in Camberwell. She got 12 birthday cards; are people more inclined to post a message on Facebook wall than go to the trouble of picking a suitable card and taking it to a postbox?
