This week I have been…

ImageWatchinga film called Liberal Arts about a 30-something guy returning to his University. It seemed to be a rather unlikely story, but quite engaging all the same. It scrapes 7/10 for the acting alone.  The other film we saw, Ender’s Game, was very silly and Harrison Ford’s acting seems to be getting worse. It had some great effects, but the storyline was awful. However, it wasn’t a bad way to spend some time and gets 6/10.

Pleased… that the world music festival that has run in our town for a number of years, Rhythms of the World is returning after a one year enforced break. This is great news as the whole town comes together to have some fun. We are already looking forward to August.

Entertaining… one of our German friends for the weekend including a trip to a favourite bar and restaurant.

Listening… to some classical music. It’s not usually my thing, but Pete and his German friends are big fans of Charlie Siem, a super talented and good looking violinist and model (yes, an international model as well!). So we ventured to north London on Sunday to see him perform – more to follow on that.

Running… in my 26th Parkrun, I will miss next weeks as I am running in the Sport Relief 6 mile event on Sunday instead.

    I also gave ‘Liberal Arts’ a 7 – though my judgment was maybe favourably skewed by being dazzled by the lead player. (You know by now the type that gets me weak in the knees):-

    Didn’t see ‘Ender’s Game’ ‘cos it just didn’t appeal, and doesn’t even more now after your verdict.

    Never heard of Charlie Siem though will now be on the look-out, ears AND eyes open.

    After an 18-month hiatus in my own running (through foot problems) just done my first morning jog. Nearly half a mile w/o stopping! (Wow!) Doubt if I’ll ever be able to participate in official events again, having done so many of them between 1994 and 2010, but who knows? My advice to you would be – do as much running as you can WHILE you can, because inevitably it’ll all come to a juddering stop – unless you’re one of those octogenarians who still manage to run in the London Marathon.
