Day 102

Level 2 Chi Kung. Microcosmic orbit

Katie and I spent the day wrapping presents and preparing for Nick’s birthday dinner in the evening. I made roast chicken with roast potatoes and parsnips, steamed broccoli and carrots and sweetcorn, followed by elderflower birthday cake. My aim is to serve the same dinner in two years time and for everything on the plate (other than the chicken) to have been raised on the property. There was meant to be a first course of figs and parma ham but, as sometimes happens when I am taking multitasking a bit too far, I forgot to serve it!

Top ten plays: number 5 – The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. Having devoured the book, I couldn’t understand how it could be made into a play, but they did and it was magic. Heartrending magic, but magic nonetheless.

For those in NZ, catch the NT Live version when you can.
