Fascinatin' Rhythm

Here’s some thoughts for you to chew

So, it’s been a while since I posted, and there’s a lot to talk about!  Each of these probably deserves a topic of its own, but I’m currently into brevity and compression, so, yeah.

1. Driving test: duly passed, first time, licence now updated — look out world!  Woo-hoo!  Don’t know when I’ll actually get myself a car, probably not this year (or at least, not until well after we move buildings to Salford Quays).  But it’s on the horizon now, and I’d kinda like the independence and freedom it would bring (or so I imagine).

2. New bike!  I actually rode to work for the first time on my new bike this morning, and it was great fun.  It’s been ages since I was on a bike, but you know what?  It was really easy to remember how to do it.  I’m sure there’s a simile in there somewhere, but I can’t come up with one, so please supply your own!  Reckon I’ll be cycling a lot from now on.  Might even keep an injury/near-miss count.  Watch this space.

3. New Year, new resolutions.  First and most urgent, my resolution to read at 1 book a month by a different author, that would be considered a ‘classic’ novel.  First up: ‘Great Expectations’ by Dickens.  I had lots of suggestions on FB for novels to add to my list, but please feel free to add your own suggestions here.  This may even become a recurring resolution, if it works out.

4. PC build — I will add the second part of the build when I have more time.  Suffice it to say now that it went very well, and I’m extremely happy with the result.

5. Music: two things.  Piano teacher — acquired, yay!  First lesson tonight, in which we’ll just talk generally about what I want, where I am music-wise, and what we might aim towards.  Second thing: Halle Choir joined!  First piece we’re doing is Delius’s “Sea Drift”.  Madeleine Lovell is the new chorus master of the Halle, but due to family issues won’t be taking up her post until March.  I want to find a singing teacher up here, but need to get some recommendations from people I trust.  Debbie didn’t have many contacts up here, so I’ll have to cast my net wider, I feel.

6. Xmas — fun.  Parents: well.  Brother: bonded with, but still annoying.  Ireland: snowy.

And that is all.  Hie-yahh!
