Hello there! I’m currently on holiday 🙂
I just thought I’d write a message to update you. Last Wednesday I came down to London amd have been staying with Philippa and her parents. It’s been a really good week so far! On Wednesday evening we went to see Gorecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs at the Royal Albert Hall (the Proms). It was really beautiful – hearing it live brought a new meaning to it! My first time at the Albert Hall too, I enjoyed it.
On Friday we bought a digital camera with some engagement money that we had been given. It’s a Fuji F810, seems pretty good so far! I haven’t had a chance to get it connected with my computer (because I haven’t been home, obviously; my only worry is that I won’t be able to get it connected to Linux but I’m hopeful).
On Saturday, we went to another Prom, this time to see Sheherezade (I’m not sure if I’ve spelt that right) by Rimsky-Korsakov, as well as a few other short pieces. It was really good too 🙂
And this afternoon I watched the cricket… what a match! I have to say I didn’t think England were going to make it in the end with all those wickets falling, but they pulled through. Bring on the Oval, let’s hope we can win the Ashes!
That’s all for now. I’m back at home on Wednesday, hopefully I will be able to update more then.
