Jury Duty, as previously mentioned, although I was done and dusted by Thursday lunchtime. On the whole it was still a frustrating experience, as despite the case itself being interesting, there was an enormous amount of mucking about involved every day, and I’d rather have been taking photographs!
Going dancing for the first time in months.
Having an old friend for dinner. Sounds a bit dodgy, but wasn’t in any way at all.
Going to a talk at Wolfson and Tay given by Niki Segnit, about flavours, which was very good indeed. It inspired me to be a bit more experimental when cooking, so I was quite disappointed when I overcooked the squid I bought on the first time I used the new oven we’ve bought.
Doing another route finding bike ride for my big ride in the Summer. 40+ miles, including crossing over at the Dartford Tunnel, which is quite cool – you rock up to the crossing control, and 10 minutes later a 4×4 comes by and you load your bikes on the back, then he chucks you out on a slip road on the other side. All free, too. Cycling back into London though Essex, on a cold, damp January morning is a bit soul-destroying though, I’m not relishing that section come the big day!
No idea what this week holds, as originally I was expecting to still be on Jury Duty, so there are no shoots booked in. Time to catch up on a lot of admin!
