Just got in from Verdi’s Requiem at the Proms. Superb performance, despite the bloke in the seat next to me falling asleep several times (not during the Dies Irae I might point out), and a rather wasted huge drum which made almost no sound at all when struck.
Spending the day with Padraig Harrington and some Golf Monthly competition winners at Carton House in Ireland. Lovely spot, but as always, I wasn’t around long enough to enjoy it.
Going to the National Maritime Museum again, this time to sample the “High Arctic” exhibition. Wonderful stuff, and I highly recommend it – wandering round in the dark with an ultraviolet torch that melts the digital snow and ice around you is quite a unique experience.
Heading up to Manchester for another Golf Monthly centenary day at Worsley park. Didn’t get wet once.
Very much enjoying what I’ve caught of the first test against India – proper back and forth stuff.
And we’re not mentioning the pub quiz this week. OK?
