I forgot to take a photo of my gardening activity today, here is a placeholder one of the River
Daughter & I went into Spillers Records for record store day, they had DJs playing all day. Blips of vinyl will probably feature on slow days
When you were famous enough to get a statue made of you and then you’re just hidden behind a load of stacked chairs.
Took a couple of hours out today to go to St Fagans museum of Welsh life. They moved old buildings and rebuilt them here. This is an 18th century school.
Had a meeting in Cardiff today with two fab people – Josie Fraser & Maren Deepwell. Afterwards we went to the pub
Today was St David’s day and there were some special screenings of the documentary about Wales Euro championship adventure last summer. My daughter and I went to one and the film’s director and Chris Coleman were there to introduce it.
It was a lovely film that caught the joyful atmosphere about the team. It’s also an odd experience to sit in a cinema and see a film about your last summer. I couldn’t spot us in the fan zone or homecoming footage though. It’s a nice capture of a particular moment, one I can show the grandchildren one day…
I’m running a meeting for the Erasmus+ bizMooc project in Cardiff for the next two days. We had a good session today then a meal out
As well as going to Coventry for the ice hockey on Boxing Day another Christmas tradition (i.e. This is the second year we’ve done it) is to see Cardiff City play over the Christmas break. We went to see them against Villa today. It was a good game and they won 1-0. It’s not as good as ice hockey though.
Let’s not even try to summarise what a shitstorm 2016 was. And if I had to pick a word that I guess will be used a lot in 2017 I’d go for Kafkaesque. But anyway, did a long run today, this is ponty cemetery.
