There's no dressing it up. The first months of motherhood are amazing, but they can also be amazingly hard. For me, the transition was more challenging as we'd just moved to Cambridge where my husband had a new job. My health visitor thought I was heading for misery. "So you're new here, you don't have any friends, and you've given up a busy and interesting job for motherhood."

As became apparent soon after the first results came in, the referendum on the Alternative Vote would be lost by a majority of more than two to one – a thumping defeat if ever there was one. And that is a source of deep regret for this newspaper, which has consistently supported the cause of electoral reform. But the rejection was not quite universal. Of the 440 electoral districts, a select 10 – that is 2.2 per cent – voted Yes. So let's hear it for Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh Central and Glasgow Kelvin, as well as the London boroughs of Camden, Hackney, Haringey, Islington, Lambeth and Southwark. Here, the Alternative Vote convincingly carried the day.

"You didn't fancy a street party either?" quips Radio 4 favourite Milton Jones to his Cambridge audience, perhaps grateful that those who had watched the royal wedding earlier (not a majority according to his quick voice poll) had decided not to forsake punnery for pageantry. Not that an evening with Jones is slumming it; he's arguably comedy royalty after all, king of his own brand of absurd wordplay, occupying a land that borders Tim Vine's equally distinct fiefdom.

Oxford produced a storming performance to overturn the odds and beat Cambridge to win the 157th Xchanging Boat Race.
Saturday 26 March 2011
On occasions the Boat Race has felt more like the United Nations at play than a contest between two sets of students from Britain's most famous academic institutions, but this afternoon's confrontation on the Tideway will feel more like those from an earlier era.

In an item in the Pandora column, 'BBC man is skewered by university tabloid' published on 29 October 2009, we referred to allegations about Lizo Mzimba made in an article published on a Cambridge University student website. Mr Mzimba issued proceedings in the High Court and as part of the settlement, a unilateral statement was read out in open court on his behalf. The statement noted that the student website had published a full retraction and apology for its inaccurate and defamatory allegations. We acknowledge that the allegations were false and have paid Mr Mzimba substantial damages and his legal costs.
