I’m much more of a summer person than a winter person and allow myself the occasional indulgence to have a winge about the cold, rain, dark etc. but I actually liked the elements this weekend from what I saw of them. (There’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing someone once said”..) This weekend had a proper wintry feeling . Early dark, cold etc… but I decided it was nice in it’s own way. Wrapped up warm, perhaps too warm, and headed for a friends back garden to set off some fireworks.. Most of the ones I got clearly stated 25m clearance, so we couldn’t set them off due to garden too small technicalities.. (will save them for a camping mission treat sometime I think) After that we headed up to The Stray with various kids (and a bottle of rum to keep the cold out) for the town fireworks display.. pretty good! (although compaired to last year, I’d say not as big?) Never the less, much fun, ooh’s and ahh’s later we headed back to friends for chili, wine and chating. Top night.
Stayed in the rest of the weekend.watched a film on Friday – “The Terminal” Bill Murry’s new flic. Very good film, amazing set – they built an entire airport terminal! Spent a whole bunch of time reading.. finished “Old Filth” A great book – short listed for the orange prize this year. “Long ago, Old Filth was a Raj Orphan – one of the many young children sent ‘Home’ from the East to be fostered and educated in England. This novel tells his story from birth, in what was then Malaya, to old age..”
