Reason for stopping: End of fight and time for bed. Also it's getting hard because I've reached an amnesia infested bit. Need to be fresh to tackle it properly.
Other:

Despite having driven all the way to Newport and back today, I thought I would do a little bit on the novel -- and found that I did quite a decent chunk!

The reason for the drive was to take G to the graduation ceremony of his students in Caerleon. However -- and this is where it gets complicated -- he didn't actually go to the ceremony because he is off to Czechoslovakia tomorrow to a conference. So, after doing the pre-ceremony mingling, during which I read Jo's Farthing in the car park, we had a brief walk to look at the Roman amphitheatre and then I drove G to Newport where I dropped him off vaguely near the centre in order to get a train to Manchester airport.

I then drove back alone. It wasn't a bad drive. The weather was hot and sunny and the traffic reasonably light. Strangely, the weather is always good for the Caerleon graduation ceremony. I suggested that the organisers must go and make sacrifices on one of the ancient shrines in the town to ensure good weather. I made myself dinner and then, as there was nothing worth watching on TV, I read more of Farthing and then revised the fight scene.
