Having spent most of last week in Canterbury, and therefore travelling via London, I felt a real sense of relief getting back to Lancaster. Something about being in the north, you see. At Uni I was accused of being a northern chemist. My reply was that I was from the East Midlands and proud of it (160 miles to Newcastle and 160 to Southampton from Nottingham sounds like the middle)
But if it came to the crunch, I have to admit I feel more at home in the north than the south. There I've said it now.
