It's been a pleasantly busy month. On the weekend I walked to and from Deptford market to meet some friends, and then went to a literary pub quiz as part of the Charing Cross festival (we came second and I managed to keep my Trivia Quiz Monster mostly in check - it really brings out my otherwise dormant competitive streak). Then on Sunday I went to the Foundling Museum with my friend N, we managed to catch a performance of Gershwin and Copeland by a classical duo, and look at the Handel exhibition, in between talking each other's ears off. Tonight I'm going to see Sunset Boulevard as part of a silent film festival - it's not silent but it's about the silents, so yeah, plus as if there needs to be an excuse for GLORIA. Friday I'm seeing a reading of Don't Look Back in Anger by Benedict Cumberbatch, and the week after The Sunshine Boys with Danny DeVito and Richard Griffiths, and I'm fair buzzing with anticipation. Then Latitude. It can feel like you miss out on so much in London, but I'm trying to balance activity with over-exertion.
Back into dance classes full throttle - practiced my attitude
this am - and trying to convince people to come to the cheerleading class with me. Health stuff is getting sorted, judging by my energy levels, and I'm also getting acupuncture on top of the meds.
