A glorious sunny day, with just a hint of Autumn crispness in the air.
We went over to Huddersfield for a couple of hours, to take a few bits and pieces to Alicia and to listen to an information session for parents at the University. It really is a lovely place (at least when the sun is shining!) with a good location beside the canal and views of wooded countryside, and I think Alicia is going to enjoy her time there. She seems to have settled in well, and apart from a few wobbles about all of the details of registering for her course next week, is quite happy.
The drive over is very scenic - Yorkshire countryside with signs of technology old and new. There's a grand Victorian era viaduct on the way and a high tech windfarm perched on top a ridge (you can just make out the turbines in the photo above that I took from the car window). Towering over it all is the needle like Emley Moor transmitter tower - a spectacular sight on a clear day like today.
The light box seems to be having a positive effect already, giving me a noticeable boost in the evenings. I am still waking up early but hopefully this will alter with time. We shall see.
