The second incarnation of my blog
Listening… to the soundtrack to Searching For Sugar Man. A good example was posted earlier.
Watching… a couple of films. We saw Behind the Candelabra and to my surprise, I found it a bit boring. It was well acted and directed, but I didn’t really care too much about what was going on, which was a disappointment. It scraped 6/10. We also watched The Women on the 6th Floor, a French comedy about Spanish maids looking after the wealthy families in Paris – quite funny 7/10. And finally the star studded Quartet which I found cliched, silly and full of stereotypes. It’s one of those movies that you can guess the story within minutes (Pete and I were both correct) and you sit there wondering if a foreign audience think that England is really like this. Just about 5/10.
Defending… my review of a Prince album as Pete felt I got it wrong. Of course, I was spot on with my observations!
Working… and not really doing much else this week. That’s a bit sad eh? And finally this week I have been…
Taking part… in my 9th Parkrun, this time returning to Wimpole Hall estate and have strained my left calf and groin! I achieved a PB, but am still some way off a good time (for my age). I have two running aims for this year that need to be satisfied. Firstly, I want to run round Grafham Water – which is 8.7 miles. Secondly, reduce my best 5km time from around 27 minutes to the sub 25 minutes which is a challenge. Both will take training of differing approaches. Watch this space.
