Au revoir les canards…

I'm going back to Yorkshire this afternoon, as am still feeling knackered and have developed bizarre painful lump in neck (my brain losing its way in my head?). Actually that's not really why I'm going back to Yorkshire, it's more to see parents and cat and go shopping in Leeds – hooray! and it's shopping wot is allowed since I have no clothes for starting work in 3 weeks time.

Am really going to miss the ducks. I don't think they have ducks in Yorkshire. Et le chum. They definitely don't have le chum in Yorkshire.

I feel sort of displaced. Odd that my time at Warwick has come to an end, but mostly a relief to be honest. Odd that I'm still here when all the other MA students have buggered off, but I'm not part of the place. Not that I ever was, not really. Odd that I haven't really moved on to the next stage either, and don't even have anywhere to live in London yet.

During the next month or so you can probably catch me on a train somewhere between Wakefield, London, Coventry and/or a small village near Windsor. Occasionally stopping still for a few minutes to breath the air and feed the ducks.

    There are plenty of ducks in Yorkshire! How else does York get to the top of Duck Density? There are some in Leeds as well, and avoiding universities there are quite a few where I live.

  2. York gets to the top of Duck Density because the website was set up by former York university students! I suspect "fowl" play myself ;) But okay, yes, Yorkshire does have a quack quack or two. But there are none in my village as the locals are rather fond of their pies…

    …and I have long suspected that the ambiguous 'meat' of their famous meat and potato pies does in fact come from our feathered friends. Not a duck to be seen on the mean streets of Denby Dale, you see, and this in spite of the fact that Huddersfield University (its closest university town) is ranked only one place below Warwick in the old duck density league tables. All very suspect. There may well be dodgy duck dealings in Denby Dale.
