Diary! Reading: "False Lights". Theatre: "Macbeth". Me. Links.
Cool, wife offered to clean, took kid into town instead. Saw part of the marathon, visiting Maritime Museum, ran round Greenwich Park. Currently on Cutty Sark wondering if he'll ever get bored with sailing game.
Did ironing last night. Haircut & Dumbbell workout this morning. Still need to hoover house & clean bathroom tho.
About to watch a pig race
Macbeth at the National was great, apocalyptic vibe, intense but not quite going over the top into silliness. Good performance from Rory Kinnear. Funky set with a huge pivoting ramp, ragged curtains and various rotating rooms.
Have some time before play starts. On the South Bank in the sun, watching the river and the river of beautiful people roll past. I think I remember this feeling. It was called f-, fr-, free-dom.
Cleared to go out tonight but for once none of the guys at work are doing usual Thursday beers. National Theatre had a few Macbeth tickets left so going to grown-up theatre for first time in ages instead. Had outdoor swim at lunchtime so did get some of the sun.
This stock photo of a classroom blackboard bugs me. What lesson is it that includes quadratic equations, trig functions, Einstein's relativity, pulleys, a squiggly graph and a balanced see-saw?
Companies House is a national disgrace: boasts of successfully prosecuting whistle-blower
Phew, kid got his first choice of school for September! Relieved as I was a bit worried about the lowest on the list.
Warm, sunny day. Walked 4km along the river to Richmond Park with the 4yo, he's playing happily in the playground. I'm in shorts for the first time this year, slightly worried the light reflecting from my pallid legs might be distracting pilots on approach to Heathrow.
Had a great swim at lunchtime. Little bit chilly so for half the time had the whole (heated, ~25m) outdoor pool to myself.
