The First Wednesday

New and unusual working life means I now have the luxury of Wednesdays OFF.  Well, the idea is supposed to be that I use the time for studying, but how could I resist spending the first of these ‘Wed-study-days’ out and about.

My destination of choice for such mini-adventures is currently the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.  Here are some of the things that caught my eye.

statue of aphrodite
Aphrodite – Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure

If Aphrodite has lost her head, what hope do we mere mortals have, I wonder.
