Friday is better left unmentioned.
Saturday was better but had a sting in the tail for me. Still, dancing and catching up at Reptile was good. In the afternoon I'd met a friend at the Rustique Café in Tufnell Park and spent a very pleasant couple of hours catching up and sipping coffee in the garden.w
Sunday was the bibliogoth meeting, discussing Michael Marshall Smith's 'Only Forward'. This was an interesting discussion over a book that, as I have mentioned already, I fully expected to hate and ended up loving. Also, that passage..
Today would have been normally a school teaching day at St Al's in Highgate, but they changed my timetable from very convenient Mondays to very very inconvenient "Fridays. Bah. So, I spent this rainy Monday indoors, practising Bach's Chaconne (I have two pupils playing it at the moment so I thought I better play it; it is quite a difficult, challenging piece and a fantastic finger work-out as well as being a beautiful work) and reading again 'Wild Swans' by Jung Ching, at the instigation (not the right word..) of my friend Jennie WOLJ who is reading it atm. Amazing book and terrific but also terrifying accounts of life in China throughout the 20th Century for three generations of women. I'd read it many many years ago in one sitting and i'm pretty much discovering it anew again as I'd forgotten it all.
