In Which It is a Bit Chilly
We haven't had any more snow, which is a relief, but it has been very cold, so the hoar frost didn't melt, most days, so we ended up with frost on frost. Chilly, but very pretty!
I have spent most of the week busy with work stuff, which is time consuming but doesn't make for terribly interesting bloggage.
I did, however, get to see my parents, who came to stay overnight on Wednesday, en route to a funeral. It was good to see them, and gave me an excuse to make a nice hearty casserole (Beef in Guinness, if you're interested)
Although this week has been relatively uneventful, I do have lots of nice things to look forward to.
Tomorrow evening I shall be heading into Bath to the Theatre Royal to see The Merry Wives of Windsor - the production is the one which was on at the Globe Theatre, and is now touring. It should be fun.
And then, on Sunday evening, I am going back to Bath, back to the Theatre Royal, to see Handel's Messiah . Every year, around this time, there is a performance of The Messiah by musicians using period instruments, in period costume, by candlelight. I've been wanting to go for several years, but as it is only on for one night, I've never managed to be organised enough to get a ticket, before.
Then, on Tuesday, I shall be going to see the historian, Bethany Hughes, talkng about her new book about Socrates.
Should be fun.
And of course, the week after that, I shall have lovely, fiendish guests :-)
