January has been pretty quiet.
The second week saw both the anniversary of our civil partnership in 2011 and our first proper date back in 2007, so we decided that was worth celebrating and went out for a nice dinner at a little French bistro near where we live.
We went to one gig. It was supposed to be folk legends John Kirkpatrick and Martin Carthy, but Martin had flu and had to pull out. John Kilpatrick managed to get a set together at the last-minute and it was a really fun gig, with all the joy of watching a tuly consummate performer. Plus he sang one of my favourite songs by Fairport Convention, ‘Crazy Man Michael’.
I finished and wrote a post about Record of a Spaceborn Few by Becky Chambers.
I also read Star Nomad the first in a series by Linda Buroker which was fun (CN for rape threat though).
We went to see The Favourite and seem to be in disagreement with pretty much the rest of the universe because we didn’t like it! I won’t get into the reasons here because it would take an entire post.
We watched Lucy Worsley’s series History of the Home which was fascinating. I love social history.
